A background process installed on 32-bit versions of Windows Operating System, the Remote Control Agent starts with Windows and awaits commands from an outside client. It facilitates remote control operation through the Systems Management Server Remote Tools application. As long as the Remote Control Agent is running, a user from another system will be able to remotely access your desktop environment with the proper credentials. The Remote Control Agent is automatically started on all versions of Windows subsequent to Windows NT 4.0. Founded in 1975, Microsoft's Windows Operating System is on more than 90% of IBM Compatible PCs.www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/wuser32.exe.html

Appears to propogate via network. When trying to remove using McAfee, it cannot find virus. Charles
This appears if you use SMS. This is also legit, you would have had to install it with permission, not maliciously.  See also: Link Kris
It is the Remote Control component from SMS Samu
This .exe is used by SMS (any version) to enable the client computers for remote connection via the SMS admin console. This .exe is part of the installation package of the SMS client and gets enabled by a policy (if needed) sent from the SMS server. Clients can be remote controlled as with the Remote Desktop connection in Windows XP. Baludinger
It's a part of MS O.S Samurai
Remote Control for Intuit TrackIt! Sometimes can kill CPU to 99%, reboot usually fixes, sometimes 2 reboots necessary. Christopher D

Used by Microsoft Systems Management Console - necessary component if your PC is managed (such as in a workplace).  See also: Link Meghan
Seems to be in the c:\windows\tiremote directory. Seems as if this version of trackit remote is not compatable with Vista William
Anything in the System32\CCM is related to Microsoft SMS which is an enterprise tool. If you are on a enterprise workstation then it is essential. Nate
