Das ist ein Dienst für die Administration von HP Druckern. Die Software ist javabasierend und heißt auch so. Leider ist sie absolut schlecht programmiert.

Used for collecting and reporting on enterprise-wide printing facilities. However, very CPU heavy having to use sysinternals process explorer to put down to 4. Would like to know why it gets stuck into msvcr71.dll's func at 0x94f6.
