Occasionally when I start up my pc, before it gets to my desktop, I get a small box pop up asking for my permission. The subject is 'Version Manager exe' - I always allow it, but i dont really know what it is.

Does anyone know what its for and why i keep getting it?

Version Manager is an applications software measurement system. Answers questions like
> Who are my software users?
> Are they really using my software the way I thought they would use?
> What are the features that are most wanted? Ex. Which menu, button or feature
is used the most of all?
> What are the feature usage patterns?
> Are they still using my software or have they quit?
> What are the preferred operating systems for my product?


It's an application tracking the usage of a freeware or shareware program that you probably have downloaded

Thanks for that.

When it asks me for permission, do I allow it, like I have been doing, or do I not allow it?

I have Zone Alarm firewall and Avast Antivirus along with Spywareblaster installed - does it belong to one of these do you think?

if you want to pass on info to the software maker then select allow if not the select no,,,, i would always go for the latter with things like this as you never know what the twats are looking at or for,,, the 3 apps you listed usually block things like that not use them,,,, its somthing collecting data about your browsing habbits,,, remember when you first saw it and think if you installed somthing,, if so ,,, then look in the settings of that program and see if there is somthing like,,,,"i agree to take part in deee dum,,dee dum" and select NO,,,
good luck.

If you want to disable it, I would use Autoruns:

The application looks a little daunting but just search through the startup items for it

I get this too, the first couple of times I authorized it then I started getting messages that my hard drive was full, seeing that my laptop was under warranty, I took it back to where I bought it a month earlier. they checked it out and didn't know what that program was and figured that was what filled up my hard drive. they had to reformat my drive and reload the operating system. it's been find until this afternoon when it popped up again. but I didn't give it permission to continue this time, I call the computer techs where I bought it and they have no idea where it came from so they said I could keep denieing it permission or I could bring it back again and see if they could figure out where it came from. I asked my cousin tech genius if he heard of this program and of course he did, he said it comes or is related to HP advisor and can be turned off permanently in the wrenches of HP Advisor. haven't tried it yet but I'm sure going to give it a try.
