The Backup Exec Remote Agent is a background application that helps schedule and back up network files. Backup Exec is a software developed by Symantec used on some enterprise networks to back up users' files and programs. The software connects to several network servers, and it copies shared folders to a CD, DVD or other external media. You disable the agent portion of the software by uninstalling it from the Windows Control Panel in the "Add/Remove Programs" section.
