    From time to time I check my installed programs list and in doing so I came across two that I have no clue how they got there or what they do. I need some clarification as to what they are.

    PunkBuster Services
    Python 2.5

    The odd thing is in my uninstall programs in the control panel, it shows PB buy does not list Python 2.5. In Revo uninstaller is how I found Python 2.5

    Hi Bass, I think maybe your wife put "Python" on your computer.

    It says Python can be uninstalled. It is not necessary to have the MSI file for un- installation,alternately,the package or product code can also be specified. You can find the product code by looking at the properties of the uninstall shortcut that Python installs in the start menu.

    Hey, that program to find cheaters sounds like a good thing, you might want to keep that...=D>
