Yes, you should remove it. No better than a virus. It is malicious and difficult to remove despite what the company's website claims. It downloaded, without my permission or knowledge, onto my computer when I installed a new Epson printer. A few days after the printer install, the software suddenly made itself known after completely disconnecting me from my home network and causing my computer to act strangely. I used the first suggestion on the following link to fix the network issue: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-networking/windows-could-not-start-error-1068-the-dependency/7963d72a-5d73-44fe-8316-058c46235737 Because I could not uninstall it normally or delete any of the associated files, I had to put my computer in "Safe Mode" and search my computer for all LTCM files then delete or shred them manually. If you have McAfee, you'll usually have a "shred" option and that's what you want to do for this. I then restarted and was able to do a final uninstall in the "uninstall a program" area in control panel (windows 7). Epson should be ashamed of itself for associating with such a company. They are data thieves.
