task manager

What is Pass ThruServ.exe running in the task manager? I stop the service and it reappears.  I have scanned the workstation for malware and virus and nothing comes up.  If this is not a necessary service for remotes or a specific program I would like to remove it.

no ThruServ.exe in startup

I am thinking it might be part of antivirus reporting back and updating.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This looks to be associated with HTC devices.
Did you happen to plug in a HTC device to your machine anytime ?

Take a look for C:\Program Files\HTC\Internet Pass-Through\PassThruSvr.exe

If you have that, you can disable it using this procedure:

It seems to be related to Sigmatel:

yeah I noticed that the only difference on the machines was the HTC sink. Thought it might be a contributor.
