As best I can tell, it installs when you update video drivers. I have no idea when/how I installed this crazy thing.... I've done a brief Google search and have found lots of people having troubles with this.

P.S. Thank goodness for WinPatrol Free. I just decided to take a look at starting programs and services running and found numerous things running that I had no idea where there. One is from Acronis True Image, one is from Norton Partition Magic, there's even one from my NITRO PDF program. I'm going to tackle them one at a time.

P.S.S. I'm wondering if the Nvidia firewall (there's more than the one questionable service from Nvidia) was giving me the issues that I had with Avast?

NOTE: I would encourage anyone running Nvidia video cards to check if they have the "ForceWare Network Access Manager" service running. You might want to do some research about it.
