According to other websites, it is a valid yet unneccessary program that is used by various companies (Iomega, Microprose, etc.) for registration reminders.

my commerical AVG security said it was dangerous. It just showed up after my first start up after being forced to accept the "new ATT Yahoo Home Page" and email box. I let the AVG put it in the virus vault. i WILL RATE IT SPYWARE BECAUSE I DIDN'T ASK FOR IT AND I DON'T KNOW WHERE IT CAME FROM.
LESABRE
My AVG dialog box reports as a level 3 danger. it also had as an anti-spyware. I had my virus scanner quarrantine it. We'll see if I encounter problems down the road.

Used PCTools with Spyware Doctor (unreg version). It identified the PowerReg SchedulerV2.exe file as a low risk problem file. It lives in the Programs\Startup Folder. I renamed the file with a .txt extension so it's no longer an executible. The PCTools Spyware Doctor program still finds it. (must be looking at the internals of the file). However nothing bad has happened since making this file 'useless' with the .txt extention. I think safe to remove, along with the associated registry references. Hope this helps. [Note this is not a promo for the PCTools software.Other such tools should work]

It comes bundled in several Apps, and typically is a reminder to Register the software that it shipped with, If a program bugs you about registration Unload Power Registration Scheduler (and the others you probably have listed under different names) MSconfig/Startup Tab, uncheck The Registration Reminder. the utility is shared by lots of software it's going to appear on occassion. If you delete it, it's going to appear again through some new software you install. If you don't need to Register any software, just disable it.
