Does that mean that my system is being monitored?  I'm confused.  Have a personal problem with someone in our IT department here....that's why I am concerned.

When I click on Start - Programs - LANDesk Management.....Another menu opens.  The only choices are:

     - Inventory Scan
     - LANDesk software distribution portal
     - Policy-based Delivery
     - Security Scan

It should not be a huge concern to you ... A lot of companies deploy such products to manage their assets ...

The software is capable of getting hardware as well as software inventory of your system ... managing software licenses ... software distribution and some degree of remote control to permit remote configuration and troubleshooting

>Have a personal problem with someone in our IT department here....that's why I am concerned.
Ppl in IT will always have the means to make life harder but they dont own the company and they too have a job to keep ... they wont overstep the line unless you two are at war.
If you are concerned, you can always raise a flag to ask why this software has been installed on yuor machine only. But before you do that, make sure that it has not been pushed on to every machine.

Thank you very much sunnycoder, you have made me feel more at ease.

Yes, he has a job to keep...but, I've already gone to HR with a formal complaint about him.  So nothing would surprise me.  

Thanks again,
Rhonda

If he really did that to get even with you, he would be in deep trouble ...
