Windows 7: What is this service running? BrUnvPrnPortPCL

Windows 7 Pro 64Bit
What is this service running? BrUnvPrnPortPCL

So my machine was BSOD like crazy, I did a ton of stuff and its fixed but I can't pinpoint exactly what is was that fixed it. I searched a bunch of the threads here, and followed a few of the write ups, so thank you since something along the way helped and now the machine runs great again.

There is just 1 suspicion service running and I was wondering if anyone knows that it is?

In the services it is called:

And the file that runs is:

Only thing I can think of that is anywhere near close to the name is a Brother printer, could the .exe stand for Brother Universal Printer on a 64 bit printer? That's just a guess from the name, anyone know.

I Googled and found nothing.

Now that the machine is running good again, should I rerun any of the malware tools or anything else?

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Your guess that the file/service is associated with a Brother printer install sounds good. Do (or did) you have a Brother printer? Is the exe small enough to send to a compressed folder and upload it here. (See this info for uploading to this forum: Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums)

You might like to run this tool:
Process Explorer 16
Set it up like the post mentions.

Maybe those that help with infections will stop by your thread and suggest the next step.

Found the the above service was running all the time and I only occasionally use SuperSpyware AntiSpyware as a standalone scan. This is solely as backup check to my Antimalwarebytes Pro. May I stop and disable it, and how would I remove it entirely? Thanks Glenn
