I have discovered a service on my Windows 2003 Server called FSTScheduler (C:\WINDOWS\fstscheduler.exe).  It was set to automatic startup with a local administrator "log on as".  I disabled it.  I can't seem to find any information on this service.  Anyone know what this is or how it may have gotten on my machine?

The only information I can find is that its related to a program called Winzero Scheduler. I hope that helps out.

As far as I can tell an administrator before me must have installed some Winzero stuff (probably a trial) and this did not get cleaned off in the uninstall.  Disabling this service did no harm or produce any issues.  I will manually remove the service and the exe that it references.  Thank you for the clue.
