This file is there when you installed software from freemake.com. For example, I install Freemake Video Downloader, the programs use Productupdater.exe to update their program. You can disable or remove it.

It seems to belong to FreeMake Conferter.

It's fine, guys. It's just the automatic updater for Freemake Software. I downloaded Freemake Video Downloader, and Product Updater always runs on boot, but it's completely fine to end the program.

AVG Antivirus 2015, build 6189, just removed the Freemake Product Updater from my system. I use Freemake Audio Converter and it is a legitimate program. I can't believe AVG is that far behind the curve that they cannot determine good from bad.
