    I guess PestPatrol (def's from 13 Dec. 2003) gave me a false positive on this file:

    c:\windows\hpfsched.exe

    Report from PP:

    Pest: KeenValue/Incredifind
    Pest Info:
    Category: Adware
    Background Info: Click here
    File Info: In File: c:\windows\hpfsched.exe
    Date: 04-07-2000 21:45:24
    Certainty: Confirmed
    Threatens: Confidentiality, Liability
    Risk: Moderate - this file can be executed!
    Advice: Delete or quarantine
    Action: Ignored

    The reposrt points to this PP-site:
    http://pestpatrol.com/pestinfo/k/keenvalue.asp

    I have two files on my system named: hpfsched.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\hpfsched.exe
    C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HPZ\Glue\hpfsched.exe

    Both files are not exactly the same.
    PP alerts only about the first one.
    I guess that those files belong to my printer HP Deskjet 970 Cxi (maybe also belonging to my scanner....).
    I have no idea what the purpose of that file is, neither what "glue" here means.....

    I will later email PP-support about this.

    Cheers, Jan.

    It is a driver that has to do with printing and scanner schedueling. This one is for win me but they are all the same in regards to win version.
