    There is a legitimate file by this name :chkntfs.exe

    A component of the Windows operating system. NTFS Volume Maitenance Utility is used for disabling the automatic running of chkdsk on specific volumes, when Windows restarts from an improper shutdown.

    Also could be some form of malware also.
