Short answer yes. It's an OEM HP bundled application.

Thanks guys, I am so used to seeing "rip-offs" that I just figured this one might be the same thing.

I will give it a go then, as I am having a few nagging problems.   I appreciate all the help this site provides

even if I don't get involved personally very much.  I am 78 yrs old and get confused too easy to really do

a lot of things on the computer, but I do enjoy reading about the various subjects throughout.

Again, thank you all for your help.

Hi gvan!

You can try reading this website I found at http://www.shouldiremoveit.com whether you should remove it or see it as  "rip-offs". I find it in my dad's laptop as a great program as good as Belarc Advisor.It tells me how much RAM the laptop can maximize or added. 

 

Pls don't download the free program, just read the info at the site. Thanks.
