Hi folks,I've noticed this in my add/remove programs and I'm sure it wasn't there before.I've never noticed it.I know it it's not malicious but is there anything I could have installed that could have installed this with it?It's showing as used rarely.Thanks.

Do you have an ATI graphics card and use the Catalyst Control Centre? I think it installs with that.

I don't actually no.Thanks.

I have it as well and after removing it a while back i am 90% certain my logitech kb/mouse stopped working,so i reinstalled it.

I'm probably better just leaving it then.It's just that I'm 99% sure it wasn't any add/remove programs before and I'm wondering how it got there?Thanks.

It could have been another keyboard and mouse i was using at the time,but i do think its connected.

I've just proved my suspicion.I looked at a post on the malware forum where I had a ccleaner unistall list and this wasn't there.Where could this have come from?Should I unistall it?

Do you have Camtasia or RealPlayer?

just forget I ever posted here if you don't.

  hiwatt 13:28 23 Jun 2008

I installed real player alternative.Could it have been that,that installed it?I done a system restore to last week and it's gone now.Thanks.

Yeah it was that.
