I see that it is simply a program. That makes more sense. Thank you!

At this point, I'd rather just remove the application, for now. By 
uninstalling it via setup, this won't effect other programs running on 
the server, correct? I've had to rebuild this server twice already from 
applications that were *supposed* to un-install cleanly. I'm a little 
gun shy...

Thanks again for your time and consideration...
