Microsoft Windows Task List Programs Glossary by SRP
(Storm Technology ?? and others ?)
We have never come across this background task ourselves. All the research on it was done by AnswersThatWork users. This is a Registration Reminder task. It is present with the same display-name/program-file combination in a number of products; examples : Storm EasyPhoto software that comes with the Storm Technology scanners, Sidekick 95, and probably others.
Recommendation :
As with all registration reminders that needlessly clutter the Task List, our recommendation is that you delete it with Starter.
Robot Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
A robot is a mechanical or virtual artificial , usually an electro-mechanical machine that is guided by a computer program or electronic circuitry. Robots can be autonomous or semi-autonomous and range from humanoids such as Honda's Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility (ASIMO) and TOSY's TOSY Ping Pong Playing Robot (TOPIO) to industrial robots, medical operating robots, patent assist robots, dog therapy robots, collectively programmed swarm robots, UAV drones such as General Atomics MQ-1 Predator, and even microscopic nano robots. By mimicking a lifelike appearance or automating movements, a robot may convey a sense of intelligence or thought of its own.
