Compaq Message Server / COMPAQ-RBA.EXE

File Name: COMPAQ-RBA.EXE
Status: Compaq Message Server is not necessary for startup. It is usually run infrequently and can be started manually if needed.
Additional Info: Applies to the CPQBootPerfDB entry as well. These files generate some kind of server or servlet that attempts to connect with Compaq online. They are like Trojans, but fairly harmless. They send information on the "Compaq Advisor/Compaq Message Screener" application that comes with every Compaq computer and provide feedback on how computer users use the Message Advisor. These messages appear occasionally and instruct and advise users on their computer and its use. They generally attempt to get you (these messages) to connect to Compaq's website. They may be safely disabled via (1) MSCONFIG or (2) Start -> Programs -> Compaq Advisor -> Advisor Settings under the "advanced" tab. Not required and can cause problems
