Well Omni Pass( Ididn't know thats what opxp meant) is an encryption program. Say you have a letter in documents for example. Omnipass will lock the Letter with a password so nobody sees it it but you
mine says Unable to locate component. The application has failed to start because GINASTUB.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this

May be part of an OEM install. Program to encrypt and manage all Windows program passwords. Found version 2.04 on my machine that was installed just before I purchased my machine. Opened up the SeureAp program and saw that there were no accounts created and was apparently not being used but was loading in the background. Uninstalled it when I started getting errors recently and have not seen any ill effects.
