Hi lameyer4
Welcome to the Community Forums.
May I ask if you are using an HP laptop and it is about that machine that you have the question?
The reason I ask is that as far as I can see is that accelerometerST.exe is part of the HP 3D DriveGuard system; this receives notifications from the integrated accelerometer and protects the hard drive (HDD) by automatically "parking the heads" to reduce the risk of damage if the notebook is accidentally dropped or is abruptly impacted by another object.
As such this is not a malware file but a legitinate file to have on your system assuming that you have an HP laptop and want to use the functionality.
If you are having issues with this file then please take a look at this page from the HP Support Forums, on this topic.
Hope that helps?

Thank you, I was able to get a solution to correct the error message.  It is a HP laptop & found out it had to do with the conversion to Window 10.  Again, thank you.
