PaceSupport removal

I discovered PaceSupport in my /Library/Startup Items and removed it. Apparently PaceSupport is some sort of software protection thingee that has hooks into Panther, Leopard and Tiger. Removing the StartupItems PaceSupport folder stopped what appeared to be a Tiger version from loading.

However, PaceSupport also populates /Library/Extensions, so I guess it adds a kernal extension. I reviewed the console log and PaceSupport is still loading for Leopard, but no longer as I said, for Tiger.

Question: If I simply remove the PaceSupportFamily.kext from /Library/Extensions can I do harm? From what I gather, it is not an Apple supplied executable. I have no idea how this thing got on my system; I'm assuming some piece of software loaded it and didn't tell me.
