Locate it on harddrive, then rename it or delete it. It will not effect operating system by doing either.

picked up using winsonar2003, showing c:/prog files/common/abode/web/aom.exe - seems harmless, zonealarm not reacting to outgoing connection attempt, i was running photoshop at the time and seems harmless, but will disable the feature as it is using 3,508k of memory.
Adobe Update software

It is an online WEB manager for services that you may or may not need so you can decide to keep or eliminate it but I recommend creating a new folder right next to it (called HOLDEM or your choice). Drag it in there for a day, week, month, whatever and come back later to delete if you have been unaffected.
