Not sure how dangerous this is but I know that my firewall alerted me to the attack and when I clicked on details it said that Roadrunner located about 30 mins from Wash D.C. was trying to utilize this program. Sounds like Roadrunner with their all seeing eye is using spyware to me.

Part of Viewpoint Media Player which is installed w/ AIM I believe. Probably listed somewhere in the liscense agreement but who cares. It's just annoying when something installs w/o asking me first. I think this can be classified as adware - working it's way to being spyware.
this appeared on my computer randomly - never installed it personally. It accesses the internet on its own every 5 minutes on my computer - I tried to research it, didn't like what I found and deleted it. Get rid of this program if it is on your machine, it does nothing good and can only be spyware.
My Zone labs firewall is catching this trying to access the internet and go to I have not let it through because I didn't know what it was. thanks you very much for this site - now I'll go and delete this and everything associated.

Bloated spyware. V2 of viewmgr.exe consumes 13MB of memory and installs itself into the control panel without interaction. Also displays popup to install Viewpoint toolbar. Note that Viewpoint is now in the advertising business by acquiring Unicast (see the link) so expect this app to get more bloated and more ad-popping

This is Viewpoint's update manager. It's harmless. It checks once daily for updates to the VMP. You can disable it in your control panel under "Viewpoint" and ask it not to check for updates. I have had 10 years experience dealing with Viewpoint/Metacreations, and they have always been highly reputable. VMP is required for AOL and AIM 3D Superbuddies, Adobe Atmosphere and many other programs.
Was reviewing all applications firewall status (access/blocked) saw it was there and was blocked. How it got there and that it was blocked, I don't know. Used add/remove as advised here to remove it. At that point, I saw that it was requesting access to Internet. I denied that and it disappeared.
norton popped up & told me this was trying to go on the net. I have NO idea how I got it, I haven't downloaded anything in months! When you go to add/remove it, be careful. As soon as I hit remove.. norton popped up & said.. vmgrremok.exe was trying to go on internet!!
Adaware and Spybot did not detect this on my machine. Zonelabs firewall reported it trying to access the internet. Go to msconfig startup menu and uncheck. Reboot. Then go to program files/ViewPoint and delete folder. Then remove from control panel.
One of the ways this is installed is by AIM messenger as well as AOL at times, so if you use that, you'll need to actually have to look for viewmgr.exe in your regedit files to delete it. It's just so totally annoying.
Used Add/remove programs to uninstall. Locked up but now does not list it. Yet still trying to access internet (Zonealarm message). Deleted all associated folders. Search no longer finds viewmgr.exe...
This program installed itself without my knowledge into c:\program_files\Viewpoint. It tried to connect a website at port 443. Thanks to the firewall that I have. That's how I noticed about this new uncool program
i've been geting a detailed sygate message that viewmgr.exe wants access to the network (with an eye graphic) and popups about every 3 minutes. very annoying. after reading theses posts i' m going to give the request a permanent NO. the eye grapphic looks similar to the one on the aim buddy list.

This program loaded itself onto my computer when I viewed the sports section of the New York Times. I am really annoyed that this installed itself without asking me (yes, I would have said no). Window's new Anti-Spyware Beta program alerted me to this one. I removed viewpoint manager from the control panel after being alerted, and then I tried to remove the viewpoint subdirectory from program files but couldn't because a dll was being used. I figured my browser browsing the NY Times sports section was using this dll. Closed the browser and voila! I was able to remove viewpoint subdirector

many thanks to all of you for your comments and advice about removing this scourge! Viewpoint installed itself on my computer without my doing anything. FYI, I HAVE been to the LA Times website recently. I just removed all AIM/AOL-related stuff along with all the Viewpoint stuff and had no problems doing so. Again, thank you all.
well, I have viewpointmgr plus viewpoint toll bar. I don't know how I got it. It showed up after going to the samsung website. Since then my computer cursor has been freezing all the time; regardles what file I have open or if I am on the internet or not. I do not know if this is the exact reason for these ocurrances, but I am mighty suspieces. I may simply, have a trojan that has not been found by either spybegone or McVee anti virus systems. If anyone knows please give me a shout.
Viewpoint manager is a client process which runs on one's pc. It initiates communication to a Viewpoint server to ensure that the latest Viewpoint updates have been applied to it's applications. Several mainstream applications use Veiwpoint as a major component to notify them of version updates; among them are IE Toolbars, AIM, and AOL. If you've a personal firewall, one can prevent Viewpoint Manager from accessing the web without one's knowledge.

I believe ITunes Snuck this on my computer based on other google results. I think it could be dangerous because it popped up on my screen saying that it needed to update itself and that it came with my computer (it did not). So I said no. A few days later I got one of those annoying squares at the bottom of my screen (which now plagues XP even by reputable companies) that said it was ready to update... Sneaky = Deleted/Removed.
It just installed itself on my computer without my knowledge. I was not even surfing. I did, however, click on a link in an e-mail message that took me to FoxNews.Com. That was just before Zone Alarm flagged an attempt to update this thing. It did not remove completely; there are a number of active DLLs that will not go away. I hate to think what it did to my Registry. I may have to roll the system back.
Can delete all buyt viewmgr.exe -- removed OK form Add/Delete, at least from Win XP. Placed the viewpoint URL and the installer fielname into the various blocking tools, so we will see. Make sure you go into regedit and delete the entries there in H_Key_Local_Machine / Software just ot be sure. DOPesn't seem dangerous, but a pest nonetheless. And mosquitoes like this deserve only one fate...
Spyware/Adware! Has also corrupted one of my computers registry twice during uninstall (caused infinite reboot loop after blue screen about registry stop error: A quote "viewmgr.exe was attempting to corrupt the registry and was caught. Dumping RAM...") and downloads Spyware in UN-install. AIM and other apps on that computer continue to function even with it removed. REMOVE AT ONCE!!!
My McAfee Firewall notified me ViewMgr.exe was trying to access the Internet. I don't remember ever installing it. I removed it using add/remove programs. Now I get "The page cannot be displayed" when I open I.E. and I cannot even ping my router! The only ping that works is :(

Delete it! Installed without my permission and tried to connect to internet when I uninstalled it - Definitely trying to report my computer activity. Is as bad as whoever ordered it installed on your computer. Delete it!
I uninstalled it, and deleted the removal file it creates. Add/Remove programs locks up on removal, ZA ping on it at removal, and the system intermittently locks up after removal. After testing on two different hard drives with similar results, I decided to reinstall it.
This is spyware! The wolf hiding in sheeps clothing as adware. It came hidden packaged with AOL when I downloaded Weatherbug program to my computer desktop. Since Weatherbug has now partnered with AOL I had no choice but to accept their trash with the download. AWS Weatherbug asserts that it is Adware, but then that is probably what AOL is feeding to them. REMOVE IT FROM YOUR COMPUTER IMMEDIATELY I detest being spied on and lied to!!!
Mostly harmless, but tricky to remove. Eats bandwidth and shows popups. Downloads updates for itself. Sometimes can be removes thru add/remove programs, other times it will reinstall itself. ViewpointKiller will kill VMP once and for all.

It is not spyware. Look at their spyware policy. They are also reviewed by Trust-e and part of the BBB Online Reliability Program. It is used by many applications and websites so be careful if you un-install it. It may break something legitimate.
  It's Just me.   (weitere Info's)
to get rrid of viewpoint on windows xp.restart in safe mode with network.go to my computer click it.look for viewpoint file.delete it all.then go to add/remove and remove all aol programs.plus empty the recycle bin.then restart the computer in nor mode
Although it is not spyware, it accesses the Internet (for updates) without consent, installs without consent. This is a sleazy way of getting installed. Takes up system resources. This is why it should not be considered "safe". Useless to most users.
Annoying pop-up

Was Sie bei ViewMgr Problemen tun können

Ein aufgeräumter Computer ist die beste Voraussetzung, um ViewMgr Probleme zu vermeiden. Hierzu sollten Sie einen Malware-Scan durchführen, Ihre Festplatte aufräumen (mit cleanmgr und sfc /scannow), nicht mehr benötigte Programme deinstallieren, Autostart Programme überprüfen (mittels msconfig) und Windows Updates automatisch installieren. Denken Sie immer daran ein Backup oder zumindest einen Wiederherstellungspunkt zu erstellen.

Bei einem konkreten Problem überlegen Sie bitte, was Sie als letztes getan bzw. installiert haben, bevor das Problem das erste Mal auftrat. Nutzen Sie den Befehl resmon, um diejenigen Prozesse zu ermitteln, die Ihr Problem verursachen. Selbst bei schwerwiegenden Problemen sollten Sie anstatt einer Windows-Neuinstallation lieber eine Reparaturinstallation oder ab Windows 8 den Befehl DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth ausführen. Damit wird das Betriebssystem ohne Datenverlust repariert.

Zur weiteren Analyse haben sich folgende Programme als nützlich herausgestellt: Der Security Task Manager untersucht den aktiven ViewMgr Prozess auf Ihrem Computer und zeigt anschaulich was der Prozess macht. Das bekannte Tool Malwarebytes Anti-Malware sagt Ihnen, ob die Datei ViewMgr.exe auf Ihrem PC lästige Werbung einblendet und so Ihren PC ausbremst. Solche unerwünschten Adware Programme werden oft von einer Antivirus Software nicht als Virus eingestuft und deshalb nicht erkannt.
