    My HP Envy notebook YDF94AV had this log file.
    As did mine. The wife and I both have an HP Envy 15T Notebook and they both had that log, as well as the mictray64.exe.
    The list they produced of affected models didn't list the Envy, but the stuff was in there anyway.
    I discovered the issue when Kaspersky began complaining about it. I deleted both the log and the mictray64.exe in both computers. Since then I read that HP has produced a patch.
    Thanks a lot HP. GRRR

    I had deleted mictray64.exe and the log it used, but now Windows Update just installed an update replacing mictray64.exe along with a mictray64.xml.
    As far as I can tell it didn't replace the log unless it put it in another location.
    Is this a WU fix or is WU just replacing garbage with more garbage?
