Don't know what the point of the service is, but here is a registry file to disable it. :)

Alternativly you could type ‘services.msc’ from the RUN command and disable it in there, or go into 'Control Panel/‘Administrative Tools/Services’.

**after further research**
My first google result form the DSLReports boards.

If you've bought Photoshop CS and have noticed a new service called "Adobe LM Service", this is Macrovision SafeCast spyware.

Is this part of the foul Product Activation that we already knew about, or a different virus?

Not quite a virus, but SafeCast does a lot more than advertised.

Each time Photoshop is started, SafeCast takes an inventory of the machine it's installed on, and will refuse to load the application if it decides too much has changed. The copy protection appears to be analogous to that found in Windows XP. Read more...

Also added file to remove the service from the 'services' area.

Thanks Chaos,
I haven't tried the registry fixes yet because I hear it disbales ADobe PS and I have a few projects I'm currently working on.. But I'll let you know what happens when I do. Thanks!

Yes, you'll need to get a patched copy of the service to replace the one you are currently running.
