System Requirements Lab???????

by TONI H / May 5, 2007 10:26 PM PDT

Looked at Add-Remove Programs (I do this about once a week normally just to check things out since I usually find interesting stuff there that I haven't knowlingly installed) and came across this one today.

I did a google search and found a couple of forums that talk about this program as being good for checking your system for gaming purposes more than anything to make sure you are already up to snuff before buyin a game or what you need in order to make sure it will run.

However, I'm not much into gaming online, have a few games I like such as Schizm and Shivers (old stuff) but don't have them installed right now, and I have NO clue about where this might have come from. I'm going to assume that it was included with a bundle of software I installed for some of my other hardware devices.

Can I also assume that this can be uninstalled without problems?

Anybody else encounter this program and have experience with it? I can't even find an .exe file that runs it and nothing is listed in Program Files that comes close to that name.

I haven't seen that one, but. . .

When you check your XP machine for Vista upgradability, most sites want to install a utility to look at your system. I believe CNet does, and I know MS does. They appear to be harmless and I've uninstalled the ones I have had.


If you have never tested your machine for gaming or Vista compatibility, one wonders where the file/program came from.

if I didn't install it,I don't hesitate to remove said program.I scan before and after removal.

If I didn't put it there,it doesn't belong there.
