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.

Restart & try

no ThruServ.exe in startup

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

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.
