    Changing the Agent Service Display Name & Description:

    Navigate to this registry section (x86 32-bit & x64 64-bit):

    This value here holds the Display name - "DisplayName"="Kaseya Agent" <---- Change this "Kaseya Agent" to your desired text here.
    This value here holds the Descriptuon - "Description"="MachineID.GroupID:name.org.group Server Address: VSA_Address" <---- Change this to your desired text here.


    For v5.1 & G1 v5.2-installed Agents
