IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Something similar already exists and is part of Norton Systemworks. Problem is, how do you know for sure that it's just stupid adware?

If I'm not mistaken, there are some *.inf files in this folder too that tell exactly what has been installed and thus how to uninstall it. But it can be a lot more complex than just deleting files and removing registry settings...
