| 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. |

| 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 |
