Terminator.exe Trojan by Matt Gerrans

My Ewido spy ware scanner just found Terminator.exe Trojan on my XP PC. Interestingly when doing a right click/properties on the file it blatantly described itself as a 'ruthless terminator of Windows processes'. Not very discreet for a Trojan.

Anyone else familiar with this one?

As far as I can tell, last time I looked, the HP site still hasn't had any info posted about these apps, which is a major oversite. I guess it never will now. It's basically legit, but it's not essential to the HP system, so if you want to lose it, you can. They are not present on my laptop, so I assume that HP no longer uses them anyway.

Oversite?? I mean oversight!
