It was installed with Jaws PDF Courier from my local print shop (Milford Printers)

This is a part of Jaws PDF Creator. It is small, apparently harmless, and required for PDF creator to function.

I work in IT support for a large (10,000+ users) organization. Jaws PDF creator is not part of our build, yet we get the odd user who will have it appear on their PC. It seems that unlless you have Jaws PDF creator, then it is likely a Trojan or other malicious file.

Best practices for resolving PDFCreatorMessages issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with PDFCreatorMessages. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
