Apparently I have "SMINST\launcher.exe"

What is it?

How bad is it?

How do I get rid of it (if I should)?

Thanks a million guys.

The general consensus (over at that link) seemed to be that it was normal.

But I seem to find so many sites that say its bad...

I don't know, I am just confused I guess.

This one any more help then - http://forums.vnunet.com/thread.jspa?forum...;threadID=42120

That deals with it...

the SMINST folder seemed to be on a lot of HP computers when I was searching.

soft thinks launcher seems to have something to do with SoftThinks PC Angel.

Here's their webpage.

Also,this is on Castlecops services list:

If you go to C:\WINDOWS\SMINST\,you should probably see PCAngel.exe in there.
