    Just noticed that in my start ups there is a program called "PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe". I disabled it from starting up (I think it enables itself after start up though).

    Simply, What is it? Where did it come from? What does it do? and How do get I rid of it?

    I have searched the web for it and found nothing concrete. Also went to Symantec and they did not seem to have any info. on it either.

    Thanks in advance.

    Follow these steps to remove PowerReg Scheduler from your machine. Begin by backing up your registry and your system, and/or setting a Restore Point, to prevent trouble if you make a mistake.

    startupfolder+\powerreg scheduler v3.exe
    startupfolder+\powerreg scheduler.exe

    It's adware.
