ffnd.exe is FreeFixer's Native Deleter tool. When FreeFixer is unable to delete files in normal Windows mode they are registered for delayed removal with FreeFixer's Native Deleter, which removes the files upon the next reboot. The actual delete operation is done before the logon screen appear.

Free Fixer should not list it's own files in the report's it produces. It listed ffnd.exe and I deleted it.
