C:\Programme\xerox\nwwia

A very strange thing which is not needed (as I googled I have found a lot of newsgroups posts of this non-professional thing).

Following reasons why I’d like to get rid of it:

  1. I do not use a Xerox scanner and I do not need OCR or something similar
  2. Why are XP users forced to have this strange things on their machines?
  3. It looks strange and very nonprofessional for following reasons:
    1. The name of the company is Xerox (e-mail from Xerox support has Xerox in his e-mail signature) and not xerox
    2. The name of the folder is nwwia (e-mail from Xerox support has written NWWIA and not nwwia)
    3. xrxftplt.exe has the icon of an standard MFC application (this is how beginners are writing their hello world applications!)
    4. xrxftplt.exe version information:

      File version: 1.0.0.1
      Description: XrxFTPLt MFC Anwendung
      Copyright: Copyright © 2000

      Elements:
        File version: 1, 0, 0, 2
        Company:
        Internal Name: XrxFTPLt
        Trademarks:
        Original filename: XrxFTPLt.EXE
        Product name: XrxFTPLt Anwendung
        Product version: 1, 0, 0, 2
        Language: Deutsch (Deutschland)

      There are at least 8 distressing mistaktes in this version information! Looks like a beginner or nonprofessional programmer so it looks like ad-aware, malware etc. and not like a Xerox application!!

    5. Version information of xrxflnch.exe looks a bit better better (but also containing some mistaktes)
  4. Date/time of both exe files is 2001-08-18 04:55 –> old strange stuff which no user really needs! (today is 2006-12-28)

There has to be a normal way to get rid of this nonprofessional peace of software!?
