|Remind_XP.exe is a process belonging to the SoftThinks CD Creator CD/DVD Writer amd serves as a reminder to register for full product support. This is a non-essential process. Disabling or enabling this is down to user preference Note: Remind_XP.exe is also a process which is registered as a Trojan.Win32.FTP. This Trojan allows attackers to access your computer, stealing passwords and personal data. It is a registered security risk and should be removed immediately Sassafrass|
|Another waste of CPU and RAM that just anoys you Alex|
|Remind_XP.exe is installed on my new Compaq Presario and launches as "Compaq Recovery CD/DVD Creator v. 6.0D2.61 (c) 200-2004 SoftThinks. I created the recovery discs however the Application Error messeges still appear at launch. I'm calling HP to find out if the discs were created properly and the application should have self-terminated. Tom Dworzak|

|Remind_XP's purpose is to remind you to take a CD/DVD recovery backup of your PC. It's purpose is NOT to remind you to register for full product (although it does do that). It doesn't do any harm, but if you know what you're doing it's also completely unnecessary John|
