    It isnt spyware, it comes on all PC's.


    ViewMgr.exe viewmgr.exe) is responsible for managing and updating Viewpoint Media Player’s components. Similar to Flash, Acrobat, Windows, Quicktime, etc., Viewpoint posts updates to its servers and occasionally the Viewpoint Media Player will check to make sure that it's the latest version. If you'd rather not allow the player to check for updates, you can disable this in your Viewpoint Manager Control Panel which can be found in the Windows Control Panel menu. By selecting "Disable auto-updating for the Viewpoint Manager" -- the player will no longer attempt to check for updates. At no time does Viewpoint Media Player or the Viewpoint Manager collect ANY personal data about you or your usage patterns, nor does it install third-party software or access information on your hard drive.
    Not spyware, you can easily uninstall it anyways.

    Question: Why didn't you try to ADD-REMOVE programs, or even search google before you posted?

    I was being overly cautious

    I did check google, but couldn't work out where it had cropped up from.

    I didn't want to remove it until I was sure it wasn't going to mess something else up.

    Thanks for the help

    It's all gone now. In case anyone else has this prob, add remove does not get rid of all the components you have to manually delete some of them then clean your reg.

    Okay I didnt mean to get down on you. I just think it is funny how everyone thinks this is spyware, when it is just like flash player.

    OMJEEZ!! FLASH PLAYER SPIES!!

    I think it gets installed with AIM. Can be removed, but certain features can't be used if you don't have it, like those AIM greetings.

    EDIT: it CAN be removed, typo.

    Well I uninstalled it just fine, and this guy got rid of it just fine. So I dont think it is quite that stubborn?
