questionCan we disable this process without it causing damage/errors in the system :S?
DonJuanYou said that if its located in the system directory then it should be ok. What if it is a "local service" under the user name in the task manager?
HayleyIt seems like I have the same problem as Donjuan. I also have other stuff that aren't normally running and are in the system32 folder as well such as csrss, spoolsv. I am not sure about other ones.
