Hi,
I understand that that tgcmd.exe may have been installed with my ISP, but I've also read it can be dangerous. My Comodo firewall continuously gives a pop-up warning about it.
Is it dangerous?
Do I need it?
And if not - how do I remove it?
Any help would be much appreciated!

Many Thanks

This part ensures the software is installed correctly (similar to an installation wizard) as reported by Cox. Regarded as spyware by some as it has the ability to retrieve user information. Whether it does so depends upon the provider. "tgcmdprovidersbc" is for SBC Yahoo DSL. One Toshiba user reports problems with hibernate on his laptop if disabled - hence the "U" recommendation

I would block access in my firewall and see if it causes any problems.
