I've never heard of this program before, but someone posted in alt.comp.anti-virus newsgroup asking what this was.
Poster thinks his kid may have installed this application on his PC. Theres a Red shield with an X in it in system tray.
Its prompting him to let it update his security files. I've told him not to let it do anything until I can find out what it is.

A quick search reveals a "Security Live Protect 5.9" is available for download at various Cracks and Wares sites online.
Can't seem to find any information through legitimate software download sites on it.

Nevermind -- I found out what it is. Looks like it could be some sort of product similar to Spywareblaster, with scanning capabilities.
