The one with the "?" icon is the legit one. It is the keyboard language indicator applet for windows.
  Do not delete!

You can take "internat.ex_" from windows installation cd, expand it and compare to check if the "internat.exe" is original. It has "?" icon.
I was suspicious of mine, but copied internat.exe onto floppy from machine that's neevr ever been connected to internet, then compared them using a Sinclair QL and my own "compare" utility, they were the same. Suggest everyone copies their good internat.exe to internat.old and compares every time they feel worried.

well my internat file thing says it was created in 1999 and i didnt have this computer in 1999... im guessing thats not good
This file can part of virus which my company is still recovering from, be weary check process explorer to see if its running, if so you may have a worm. It is a legit file from microsoft as well, if you are worried you may have an infection delete the file. If you are not experiencing any problems, leave the file

Best practices for resolving internat issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with internat. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the internat.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan.
