What is Icon09DB8A851.exe?

I've been trying to tweak my Windows7 machine's performance. 

While checking out the startup list in System Configuration I came across something that just doesn't look quite right. 


Startup Item = vpngui.exe

Manufacturer = unknown

Command = C:\Windows\Installer\{<a long number, possibly a guid>}\Icon09DB8A851.exe -user_login

Location = c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup


If this is legitimate why is the manufacturer unknown? 


(This is supposedly a Cisco file.  I run scans regularly, Symantec and MalwareBytes, and so far as I know my system is clean.)



Vpngui.exe is a process associated with the VPN Client application from Cisco Systems. It is used to setup IPSec communications VPN clients. Non-system processes like vpngui.exe originate from software you installed on your system.
