Question Found hidden program called "Service Programu" - what the heck is it?

Trying to reduce battery consumption on my LG Optimus V, I installed Autorun Manager.

There's a suspicious entry in the list, called Service Programu. It has a picture of an anime character as its icon (someone in another forum discussion thought it was Yuna from Final Fantasy X). This program has many permissions. I do not recall installing anything like this.

I do have Lookout and Anti-Virus installed (free versions) but they didn't detect anything.

I Googled, found a few existing discussions, but not much info:
* Android Central
* Howard Forums
* Google Support

I'm concerned that this program might be spyware or malware. Any ideas as to what this is, or what I should do? Thanks for your help.

My understanding is that this is a (normally) hidden menu of options set by your service provider. Things you would normally need to use your MSL to access. This thread from android central talks about how to gain access to some of these. I don't think it's anything to be concerned about.
