Hi,

I have noticed a new folder in the C drive.

It's name is Pivot Pro Plugin.

Any ideas as to what it is or where it came from?

The only new software was for my new monitor, eDisplay Management.

Regards

Looks like it is related to an Acer monitor. Most likely fine.

Hi Troy,

That was a very fast reply, thank you.

I have sent an email to Acer and the Pivot Company but a quick ask on the Geeks gets quicker results.

I can now rest easy .

Again Thanks. Regards

Best way to be 100% sure is to try uninstalling all the new software you recently installed. If it goes away, problem solved. Then you can install it again of course.

Hi Troy,

Now that's why I joined Geeks.

I didn't think of uninstalling the program!

Hi Troy,

I uninstalled the software for the monitor and the Pivot Pro Plugin disapeared.

So I reinstalled the software and back it came but now I know it's not a virus or anyother type of nasty.

To be honest I did not look at the rest of the words under your photo, I just assumed that you were somewhere else in the world.

So problem solved and thank you for your help and time.. :D

Regards
