What is Microsoft.Photos.exe file. Panda Virus Protection said it was trying to download the file to my Windows 10

What is the file.  Couldn't find clear info except that it caused crashes in some IE.  Do I need this file to allow Windows 10 to operate correctly?  I have had so many problems, I hate to download something else that creates my system to go wonky.

Some comments said it can hide viruses in this application....Afraid to let it download and install. 

Any assistance would be appreciated.  This was not a download thru Windows 10 but a message from Panda virus protection

Thank you.

I believe it's to download new screen backgrounds to keep putting different ones on the signin screen. So blocking it should be fine.
