The idea here is to learn something from it. Reformatting the system is

that's why TPF keeps it at bay.
This isn't on any system I use or manage. It's on a collegue's system
and I am trying to help find a way to figure out what it does, how to
get it shut down permanently, removed if possible.
Thanks for the suggestions to those who've provided some, including a
