This program is pre-installed on the PC

Such software is installed by the manufacture when delivering the PC to the end user. Some pre-installed programs are considered bloatware as they are simply limited function trials, while others are required for proper PC operation.
CyberLink Power2Go is typically pre-installed with ASUS computers.
Note: This program has often been considered as bloatware by some users as it is bundled on various manufacturer's new PCs. (Because this might be considered bloatware does not mean the software is bad or harmful, if you use it regularly its worthwhile to have. However, bloatware typically means the program is optional and was simply pre-installed but is not required and can be removed.) Some quick tips to be aware of:
  • It is usually licensed for use only on the ASUS PC on which it was pre-installed.
  • It is often time or functionally (lite version) limited for ASUS computers.
  • If you do not use this program you might consider remvoing it as it often consumes system resources, even if not actively being run, adversely affecting system responsiveness.

@Waterbug .... as the text above explained, Cyberlink Power2Go comes pre bundled with ASUS on Windows 7 & 8 OS's. That's why it "suddenly popped up" while you did your updates. If you don't want it, just uninstall it.

I just did a update and all of a sudden i see this, I have never heard of this before and don't know what it is so i came here, still don't have a clue as to what has been put on my pc without my permission. Yes this site does tell me what it is but it doesn't tell me why all of sudden it popped up out of the blue during a regular update and i have had it for over a year
