Installed as I was installing Epson Printer (R300) software from CD that came with the printer Dennis Day
Registration Reminder D Grove
It collects information for Leader Technologies, and thus it is classified as non-harmful spyware. However, it crashes Windows (BSOD) because of interferance to certain Hardware Drive devices, such as DSL modems & certain CD/DVD-RW. AARIAN
any program that gets into your computer without asking cannot be good, especially if it cannot be removed with the add/remove tool raymond
Spybot said PowerReg is bad.(but it's not active[so i don't how bad it is]) William
This can also be removed through safe mode Nana
it is malware it collects unknown information it also copies itself every time you try to disable it and any program that does that can not be good for your computer (including internet explroer) nic williams
Modem Helper. Kinda harmless 'spyware'. But no harm from removing it. So.. zhorvath
It messed up my computor, Microsoft security scan Identified 6 threats asscociated with this programme, but could only uninstall a couple of them as 2 components were in the system restore. It may not be too bad when working normally, but when it goes wrong it really gooses your computor. barry hodkinson
Latest version appears to hide from Spybot proberts
came with Gothic 2, prevents you from running msconfig, so you cant remove it. I had to load a previous back-up but it reinstalled next time it ran. barry
Installed with PowerQuest Partion Magic, gathers and sends info on you to create a user profile, SPYWARE Darien
too annoying, it shut down my computer even though I have spyware Julia
My computor crashed because of this program, a malware check at the microsoft security site. rated it as a medium security risk, and found 5 other related files it tried to delete as malware. microsoft could not delete it as it was enbedded in system restore.
wow, dunno about some of you guys.. this file was installed when software was added to system for adding a dvd burner. dave
According to Leader Technologies, it is only a "Registration" program for whatever utility you have installed. For Example, if you install BOINC Climate Change Experiment software, you will be asked to Register. Leader Technologies insist this is a once only act, and lies dormant after registration. However, if you select to register later, it will place a shortcut in your Startup folder.  See also: Link Mark - UK
its on my computer and registry booster test confirmd that it is dangerous johnny
Installed from Gamespy Arcade Jason
I have encountered this program as a result of a prank for restoring unwanted values to my registry, such as start page. Ben
Part of 3COM modem software  See also: Link Mystery_Customer
Installed with ZoneAlarm, spybot caught and killed most of it. Had to turn off system restore and delete all the restore points. Also had to activate "Clear virtual cache on shut down" to get rid of it. The damage it caused to my registry is going to take some time to fix. Theo, Network Security Consultant
its a scheduler that comes with all sorts of programs; it shows a popup that says "Register Now" or somthing like that and collects info
Something strange about this executable. On my machine, the method of installation was to place the actual executable in the "C:\documents and Settings\ user name \Start Menu\Programs\Startup" directory rather than just placing a link there, and installing the executable somewhere else. This seems seriously suspicious to me, although I was able to delete the .exe file when I booted to safe mode. Conclusion: Extremely suspicious, but unknown quantity. Dave W
My computer has been crashing randomly for sometime now. I'm pretty sure powerReg is the cause. I don't know how to get rid of it! brendogs
Came with Palm Outlook 2007 sync update. It imediatly caused a BSOD. How dare they put this crapola on my computer. Dan Feinberg
It is a registration reminder and nothing else! It is hilarious to read some of the claims of damage; Hardware Driver compatability problems (lol), preventing MSCONFIG from running (rafl), shutting down a PC (lmfao)!!! Oh, hold on i take all that back - It just broke my coffee maker!  See also: Link Noddy Big Ears
This is a scheduler that is placed in your startup flolder when you opt to not register the software you just installed on your system and its a timed module that will reopen after a certain amount of time and or certain amount of times you open your program and the it will ask you if you want to register your software. The only information it collects is the data you type into it and and program uses data. I personaly don't like it and it just started showing up on my start menu after installing software and I beleive it is a part of Micosoft security to see who's stealing or shareing softwa. it comes with the OS disk and pops up when you opt to register your OS install at a later time, So it is better to go ahead and register your OS new or reinstall, upgrade or full, thus this elimanates this pesky little executable, else you do experence the problems listed in the other coments as I have and it doe's come from Microsoft.

windows defender says Potentially unwanted

Microsoft identified it as a 'medium threat' but has no fix for it. Rama
The problem occurred right after I installed Norton Security Suite and appears inC:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Norton\{0C55C096-0F1D-4F28-AAA2-85EF591126E7}\Norton\QuickStart\S-1-5-21-3628239739-2030820766-350057258-1006FolderForUser. Seems to be a Norton executable. Stan
Installation reminder - you people are boofheads.... mind your own business
My computer suddenly "shuts down" aka the screen turns black for no particular reason, I just happened to see this program in Msconfig and googled it as I didn't know what it was. Seems like others with this has had the same problem. Alex
When I turned my computer on today AVG caught it as malware and said it was dangerous and unwanted and moved it to my virus vault. I don't know how it got on my computer. I don't have any room to put any new software into it so it didn't come from that. Last night my son and I were researching Michael Jordan to write a report. That is the last thing we did on the computer. The only thing that I can think of is that it came from one of the websites I clicked on to get info for the report. LYNN
Avg 2011 Free had no problem removing it. Easton
My Powerreg Schedular V3.exe came from a game I installed, and the uninstalled. AVG Antivirus caught it this morning and I sent it to the vault, and AVG deleted it from C\. The registry value is above, and until it is removed, it will survive startup. Coach
i think, therefore i compute SuperAntiSpyware considers it a threat boofhead
I am not sure if its a problem, but super antispyware just picked it up on a scan. I have wondered for quite some time what it is, so if it doesn't hurt to remove it,why not? Besides, there seems to be a lot of associated problems with it according to this forum. Brian
