consent.exe from unknown source

After MS update on Win 7 consent.exe keeps trying to run. Norton insight lists this as safe, but file source is unknown which concerns me. Is this safe/should I let it run?

You can always upload the file to VirusTotal for peace of mind.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.
