Well if you find a program that is not installed by you then it must be a complimentary kind of program which got installed when you install any program such programs get installed by default. What I can suggest you is just don't uninstall or delete it from your system since such programs may be a part of a program you need. Try to figure out if you have installed any new program recently? If you dont really need that program then uninstall the program first & see if the software manager is there or not?
IF it is still thr then uninstall it from add remove panel.

I hope this helps.

This is a Windows Process from Acresso which executes online checks in the background for updates to software from Dragon Naturally Speaking, Roxio, Corel Draw, and Acronis. If you favor, the Macrovision Update Service can merely be switched off by running <msconfig.exe> and eliminating the mark from this entry below the 'Startup' tab.
