What is ReminderInstaller?

Absolute Reminder is part of Absolute Software's Absolute Computrace Agent and Absolute Track products. It is typically pre-installed on various OEM systems such as Dell, Acer, Lenovo and Samsung who distribute this program in the PC's BIOS.

Dell for instance builds computers with our Absolute Computrace Agent embedded in the firmware.

This level of persistence provides Dell customers with the means to manage, track, and—in the event of theft—recover their computer."
