Not dangerous, but certainly a pain in the arse! Remove it from startup through msconfig to stop the irritation. psimantis
It causes error message at start up PC runs slow, Ijust renamed it no more problem steve kearns
useless crap - more preloaded software designed to "improve or enrich" your internet experience. Quote from HP site:Yes. You have the ability to deactivate the service within each message you receive. This option is found either in the "Options" menu on the initial desktop pop-up message or in some cases in the footer of the message main content. Alternatively you will find the deactivate option through the Start menu under: Start, All Programs, PC Help & Tools, Compaq Connections Please remember that if you deactivate the service, you will miss important support notices + usage information  See also: Link Matt
it is not needed for anything. Just another file that spreads a virus to make matters a big pain Dave Johnson
At start up, Zone Alarm pops up with "suspicious behavior" & states it is attempting to monito user activities...track or log keystrokes, mouse movements, etc. slamour4
