Default What is Ptsnoop?

I have just gotten a Compaq Presario 7360 Desktop and I noticed that when I
disable all my start-up items Ptsnoop and Country Selection are rechecked when
I reboot, I have found that there is a trojan called ptsnoop but there also a
ptsnoop program for modems with the same name, Which I have a HSP56 Micro Modem
and have found that they do you these two, Ptsnoop and Country Selection. But
what I really need to know is what is the file size of Ptsnoop for the modem.
Because I have run AVG anti-virus and it found nothing! And I would hate to
download Norton Trial when it could just be for the modem! So if anyone knows
what the Ptsnoop file size that goes with the HSP56 I would be greatful to
know.

Its a program for your dial up modem.
