Hello Tom,

I think the main feature of SweetPacks is to allow user to post emoticons in messenger, Facebook, email etc.

SweetPacksUpdateManager.exe is probably a component that notifies you and/or downloads new versions of the SweetPacks software to your computer.

SweetPacks is sometimes bundled with out software. For example, the other day I downloaded some PDF reading software, which during the installation also asked me to install SweetIM.

Hope that answered some of your questions.
