The program " People Near Me" was not there in my computer till yesterday and I was not aware this program exists. It has suddenly appeared in my computer this morning (in the tray) I am surprised how this happened. I didn't download this program. Did it come through auto Vista updates? Does it pose any security threat to my computer or a virus infection. Shall I keep it or remove ? Advise!!

Here's a link to MS explaining what it is it's not a new program.
I think maybe another computer was near yours in the last day or so, and the computers
tried to link I've never used Vista on a wireless so I'm not sure how it activates.
