|Like Thomas said it's for License Verification...you idiot.You could have easily googled it and found out.Theirs also a proper way of removing it without affecting your PURCHASED Corel products. Anyway I'm not going to post my link on how to remove b/c your a noob. Wilbert|
|It is ProtexisLicensing- part of the Protexis copy protection and license management software- it is a license verifying service installed with certain software, and also protects the software from being illegally copied. Although typically installed with Corel software, I had it appear after having to verify proof of student status eligibilty in order to obtain a (huge, btw) discount on my purchase of Adobe CS4 Design Suite Premium. Christie Bella|
|Used for licensing other software (like Corel), but will not be uninstalled when software will be uninstalled. For more information follow link, or go to Protexis-page (http://www.protexis.com/support/support_PSIService.htm#link16) See also: Link Roland|

|corel paintshop pro photo xii|
|Comes from Corel Paint Shop Pro 11.2 or higher. Without this file runing in Background the PSP will not work. Until now it did not try to connect with internet. Anyway I hate it. Corel Sucks !! Martin|
|Used by all Corel Products, got it with WinDVD MarkD|
|This sureli comes on installing Corel. not harmful, and for lisencing issues!! Abhijith S Dev|
|Licence software for various installed programs and applications. It is not always removed when the program is removed. Tracks and logs personal information and activity. runs quietly in the background sending collected information to outside source. No security sig. If disabled or removed you can not run the program it installed with (ie. Paint shop pro, correl draw... etc) Rather than running on the program start, it runs on system startup and continues running in the background. soulution: don't buy software from a company that can't write their own copy protection software. baratacus|
|I got it with PShpPro XII and WinDVD. It's very irritating. Took me 4 mths to decide that it was the source to a lot of BSODs. Had to uninstall the Corel programs as the Error could not be repaired. Impossible (for me) to uninstall PSI, so I had to kill the Services. The BSODs stopped. And I'll never buy anything from Corel again. I should like to know which programs use PSI. Does it come with Photoshop too? RMO|
|Comes with Corel Painter 12, required to have the software run, This is why Corel sucks I hate having crap like this run in the background. GW|
|Even if uninstall all Corel and related products, it stays and run in the background. Very persistent! Neildulog|
|Got it from Corel Painter Sketch Pad that came free with my tablet. Floreum|
|Seems it is part of Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3. I put it as neutral instead of no threat because that is all I know about it. I do not know if it calls home with usage tracking or not, so it will not get a safe from me until I know fully qhat it does. David D|
|Appeared after installing CorelDRAW X5 Trial.|
|It is the licencing component of some software. Dean|
|I got it with Corel WinDVD and Label@Once|

|mine came with corel windvd SG|
|This file is on when my Windows safety mode is active, it is goes off when Windows is turned to its normal state. It is a spy. I have not on my computer COREL software or related to it. I did not ask for it. When my Windows is in normal mode, I can not see this protexis file, it appears only, when my Windows is in safe mode in the Program Files Petre|

|after an enormous researching i concluded that it's not harmfull... it just use a portion of PC memory... it's belongs to Corel Co. as antipiracy software.. that's it... if we disable it, Corel doesn't load and shows (error 38) and we can't even resintall or unisntall Corel... leave it or crack it... that's all folks !! ;-) Fernando|
