Kaseya Agent is a program that system administrators can deploy to networked computers to provide services such as virus protection, software upgrades and enforcement of security policies. If you have purchased a second-hand computer from a business, you may find this among the start-up items in Windows if the previous owner failed to format the machine before selling it. If you do not need this program, remove it from the computer.
