Nick Its the Agent for Quickbooks 2004 or less - it checks for updates  See also: Link
Don Came with Quickbooks. I have had it running for many years in various forms as I upgraded Quickbooks. Not dangerous, but also not absolutely required. You control it from the options in Quickbooks.
Updates Quickbooks
Matt Nusaince Program that conflicts heavily with NAV. Causes annoying firewall popup alerts. Probably not spyware.
jsm My computer ran very slow after installing quickbooks. It went back to normal when I blocked this application in my fire wall. Don't know why it slowed my computer yet
