This file is used by my local Comcast ISP here in Houston. It is used within a program known as Constant Guard Protection Suite. Suppose to secure your online passwords and save website info. I am not totally confident in the program until I can run it for a while.. Only installed 2 days ago. I was subjected to this program when Comcast say they noticed malware on my DSN. Constant Guard Protection Suite is what they offered as a download for my PC.
I know that it takes up avery large amount of memory, and that my Windows XP Pro system frequently runs very slowly, especially, but not only, when showing videos with complex sounds.
