I just got this little application which provides more control and whether you can enable/disable items at startup. Running it for the first time, I am finding an item called "FSM" which has no information on it.

My PC is an HP e9150t quad core desktop using an Intel i7 CPU (920@2.67 GHz). I have 8 GB of RAM and am running Windows 7 Home Premium-64-Bit. It was purchased new from HP, in July 2009. The Microsoft products I am running include the 2007 versions of Outlook, Word, and Excel.

Since it doesn't sound familiar, I thought I would ask you experts if you have any idea what that might be. Thanks for your help.
