    Found this listed in My HijackThis log... I did a google search and in one forum they were telling a guy to get rid of it... but another forum said it was a startup process and not a task manager process, or something to that effect.

    Anyway, do I need this and if not... shall I remove it the normal way by running HT and then booting in safe mode going to program files and removing it? If thats not the proper way, what is?

    Thanks.

    Well, yes I figured it was... but do I just check it on HT and delete... or do I have to go into my program files and delete it that way?
