A window with the above name apeared as I shut down my PC the other day.

I searched the internet for information but only got some stuff in French I couldn't understand.

I keep all my spyware etc up to date (NIS 2005, spybot, adaware and AOL antispyware), but I updated again and ran a scan which found nothing. I also ran a shields up scan and symantec on line security scan.

What is twaintrackerwindow and should I be worried?

Thanks

Lou

Let me rephrase my answer:

Thanks Tolomir - I looked at teh link,

Yes I use a scanner as part of an HP all in one. But I haven't scanned anything for several days (PC rebooted more than once since). I've printed quite a bit but no scannning.

Best regards

What I wanted to say is: Twaintrackerwindow might be just a scanner driver or some scanner related software.

Maybe checking if you press a button on the scanner to pop up a scanner application for user's convenience.

Thank you,

Thanks Tolomir,

Yes I got what you were gettting at. You are probably right and there is no need to worry. Could be the all in one drivers reacting to the fact that I have been switching the deviceoff and on a lot (to save the environment!).

best regards
