It is apparently a part of Computer Associates EZ Antivirus - part of Zone Alarm's Internet Security Suite. Even though I chose not to install the Anti Virus, VET Message installed and is running on its own. Also see CAISafe - another component of EZ Antivirus which also installed on its own and is now running on my system. I am going to disable them both and see if I really dont need them as I am already running AV software (that i paid for). RenX

This is part of CA EZ Trust Antivirus software Howard
ca epired on my laptop and ichoose not to renew it but the notice to renew constantly pops up on my screen and nothing I have tried will get rid of it so I call it a virus Sircher
I never installed any anti-virus software or have even heard of CA AV, so I don't know where this came from. It also consistently opened windows alerting me to a path that doesn't exist being a virus. I may have gotten a Trojan, but until I can prove that, I'm going to classify this process as a virus. Sam
