Just noticed it while doing some cleaning, actually PCPitstop noticed it. Interesting sidebar perhaps, Windows Workstation, Messenger and Computer Browser were all disabled until this Prism XL thing appeared. After investigating I found all of these services running and on automatic. Presently have all of the above including Prism disabled. Just curious. Thanks.

Is this a Gateway or eMachine computer? If it is they use this to install apllications. It can be disabled.

If it's not one of the above computers and isn't used in a corporate environment it may be malware.

Sorry, duh.... I'm running XP Pro on an HP dv4000. Of course the real puzzle is how it, or "something" enabled the other items. Thanks.
