PLSRemote Service

Help, I have a service running on many of my machines called "PLSREMOTE" it is (I believe run by a PLSRemote.exe", and is a manual service. The web is full of people with this windows service on their "Hijack this" lists, but nobody (I could find) is able to ID it. What is it should I stop it and how do I find out before doing so (I've stopped it on some computers B/C I thought it was related to Pestpatrol by CA which I had a demo of, but it is on some machines w/o the Pestpatrol service) Josh

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You’re right about the lack of info and how most hits put it as a trojan and/or spyware. One hit came up with a “VX2 Infection” and recommends running a VX2 cleaner.
Beyond that I can’t find anything else to help.
Sorry.

    Well, I got the Lavasoft ad-aware and VX2 Cleaner plug-in and ran it on one of my "affected" computers and it read clean. But good suggestion (that's more'n I found). Josh
