Software Licensing Service for Windows vista, don't ruin it! DD
Windows Vista licensing. The process forcefully gives private system information to Microsoft without user consent, and is used by Microsoft to disable operating systems. This can be considered an 'official virus / trojan' and is very dangerous, but Vista can't be ran without it. Mircea

Can be disabled via services (or ending the process enough times) - Doesn't seem to have any real bad drawbacks from being disabled. Though I've had to start it back up to print once or twice. It does share information. Ed
