If you have come this far to find information about this process, and know how to remove it, you will have noticed that it starts at every Windows session, takes up about 2 MB of RAM, and even if it takes up little or nothing the processor in resources and calculations , for those who like to keep their computer clean to give 100% performance, this useless process can be disabled.
