This is the Trend Micro generic detection for potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) that are installed in your computers or devices. This application is detected as carrying a possible risk of having untoward impact to the user.

Note that PUAs' impact depends on its design. Some PUAs do not completely and explicitly state its purpose or function. We do note that for some cases, the user may find the application useful enough that they are willing to endure its effects. As such, we define these applications as potentially unwanted.
