Autokms.exe virus

Hello there, this is my first post on this site and hoping that I can get real answers from other users of this forum. My antivirus always flagged Autokms.exe virus. When searching the Internet for this file, I can’t have clear answers. Some says that Autokms.exe is a virus and some claims that it is a clean file and part of the system.

What really is Autokms.exe? Should I remove it? What will it cause my PC if in case it is a legitimate file that is contracted by a virus? I can see multiple instance of Autokms.exe when opening task manager. I can end other process but there will be one left that I cannot close. I hope guys here can help clear my mind.

    Well it is a keygen that you probably used to crack your microsoft word. I don’t know if it’s that bad or not, but I guess it wouldn’t hurt to try to remove it.
