known as RadialPointServices (rps) which is PC Guard for blueyonder - harmless file
  Alan Feechan, Blueyonder Technical Support  
It is a Antivirus+Firewall Package provided free from NTLworld.com for all its broadband costumers, this should not be much of a problem but does take a liking to hog all of your ram from time to time.

RPS.exe as NTL or Virgin anti-virus always creeps up to 100% processor usage, constantly crashing your PC. Use task manager to halt the process, then restart and it's back to normal. Ho hum, free software from useless suppliers! :-)

Is used for PCGuard. Ending this process closes down PCGuard. However it does hog a lot of commit charge and CPU

It can be PC Guard..a supplemental set of applications associated with Virgin Media broadband. There is a link to download this program from Virgin's web site directly, if you have problems authenticating your details beforehand.

This file is a part of the Anti-Virus Protection provided to Telus users. This file works along with the live scanning process and therefore is a necessary application & is harmless other than using some Cpu power from time to time.
