Delete this, it is not needed in any way, but watch out. ZoneAlarm told me it tried to install something that starts at startup when I tried to uninstall it. Either install ZoneAlarm during the uninstallation of Simplicheck or if you know what you are doing, remove it on your own with MsConfig (not sure if that is the only place it is installed)

I never installed this program, but today I find it in my system. Is a trojan, better delete it.
