No intel stuff on this system.

I found this, after several searches via several different search engines,
and think that it may explain what this thing is – since I do have palm

I know that a lot of the Intel drivers come up as pii* If you have an Intel
mainboard, NIC, chipset etc.. it may be part of those drivers. Look through
the drivers list to see if this gives you anything or re-install any intel
drivers you may have and see if it re-appears.

Hi All,
I was just doing some cleaning up on my home system (W2K Pro SP3) and I
noticed this "piiserviceO" in the processes list. I found it in the
registry under "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", but I
can't find any info on it either at MSKB or via google searches. I've
deleted the key and haven't noticed any change in the systems behaviour, but
I'd like to know what it is (or was)...
I can't find any files on the system named 'piiserviceO', or any variation
thereof, and google gave me zero returns (a first) except for something
called 'psiservice'.
