AnswersThatWork's Terms & Conditions of Use


The Windows startups, Windows Processes, and Windows Services below are only a subset of the massive database used by our  The Ultimate Troubleshooter  product.  Try it out — it's simpler than searching these pages.



Task List






Tablet PC Button Service.   Background program found on Windows Tablet PC and whose role is to manage the functionality of the Tablet PC Buttons found on all Tablet PCs  (Tablet PC buttons are buttons situated on the sides of the screen and which the user can click on with the Tablet pen to perform specific functions – the functions of these buttons can normally be changed by the user).  This process also puts an icon in the System Tray called  “Change Tablet and Pen settings”  to give the user quick access to the configuration screens for the behaviour of the Tablet Pen and Buttons.

Recommendation :
Leave alone – this is an intrinsic [and useful] part of Windows for Tablet PCs.

Note :  by turning off all Pen and Button settings you can prevent this program from starting – that, however, is not very useful to most users.



(Wacom Technology)

Service installed under Windows 2000/XP by the drivers for Wacom’s graphics pen tablets.  This service is the interface between your tablet and the graphics, image editing, or desktop publishing software (e.g. Quark Express, PageMaker, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc…) that you are using so that the software knows how to interpret the pen movements you make.  It shows as  TabletService  or  WacomService  on the Services tab depending on the version of the drivers.

Recommendation :
Essential for the proper functioning of your graphics tablet – Leave alone.  If you experience shutdown or boot-up errors which mention this service, make sure you have at least Service Pack 4 installed on Windows 2000, and Service Pack 1 on Windows XP, and also see if Wacom have more recent drivers.




You have the   Tablet PC Input Panel   currently open.  The  Input Panel,  also called  Virtual Keyboard  is the Tablet PC application which enables the user to enter text in free hand (which the Tablet PC converts to regular text).



(Wacom Technology)

We are not 100% certain but we think this is the System Tray icon installed by the drivers for Wacom’s graphics pen tablets and which enables the end-user to have instant access to the configuration options and features of his graphics tablet.

Recommendation :
Down to end-user preference – most tablet users tend to leave this icon enabled (can be disabled on the  Startups  tab of  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.

Tapisrv TAPISRV.exe

Telephony API Server (in full :  Telephony Application Programming Interface Server) which you will find in Windows 95/98/ME/NT4.  It is an essential task used by all telephony services (eg. Dial-Up networking via any type of modem) in these operating systems.

Recommendation :
Leave alone.

Taskbar  (1)



System tray icon installed by the software which comes with the  Belkin Bitronics 2‑port and 4‑port AutoSwitch printer sharers.  These sharers allow you to share a printer between two or four PCs or to have the one PC switch at will between two or four parallel devices which need to use the PC’s single printer port (e.g. printer and scanner, or two printers).  In the first configuration (two PCs sharing one printer) you can, through this System Tray program, transfer files between the two PCs via their printer ports (both PCs must have this software loaded).  In the second configuration (one PC needing to switch at will between two or more parallel port devices) this icon is essential to allow the user to choose the device that he/she wants to switch to.

Recommendation :
If you are using your Belkin Bitronics switch to share a printer between two PCs, and your PCs are already networked in a conventional manner (via network cables or wireless networking), then you do not need this task and can disable it on the  Startups  tab of  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.  If you are using your Belkin Bitronics switch so that you can switch between various devices which share your printer port, then you will already know that this task is essential as it allows you to choose the device that you want to switch to.  If, however, you have never had a Belkin Bitronics switch, then double‑click on this task and see who the manufacturer/publisher is.  If the information you see does not jog your memory, then run a full virus scan on your PC using up‑to‑date reputable antivirus software to make sure you do not have a virus.

Taskbar  (2)


(Sapphire Inc)

This is a System Tray utility, called  Redline,  which allows the user to tweak his Sapphire graphics card (e.g. antialiasing, screen settings, textures, compression, TCL), overclock the graphics card, or create graphics card configuration profiles so that, for example, a particular configuration is used for normal day-to-day operation while another configuration is used for gaming.  Redline also enables the user to define hotkeys to perform special functions (with gaming hotkeys being the foremost target of this feature).

Recommendation :
Down to end-user preference.  If you do not use any of the Redline features, simply disable this task on the  Startups  tab of  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.

Taskbar  (3)


(Colorado Software Architects)

System Tray icon which is an intrinsic part of the  Backup Scheduler  of the  1Safe  backup software.  It allows you to access the backup scheduler from the System Tray and check on or configure backup jobs.

Recommendation :
Essential if you use the 1Safe backup software – Leave alone therefore.

Taskbar  (4)



You may have the  W32.Frethem.L@mm  virus, particularly if the full path to this task, as shown on the  Tasks  tab of  The Ultimate Troubleshooter, is  C:\Windows\Taskbar.exe  or  C:\WinNT\Taskbar.exe.

Recommendation :
Update your antivirus software and then run a full virus scan on your PC.




Windows Vista Task Scheduler Engine.  Core task of the Windows Vista Task Scheduler.  Unlike with previous versions of Windows, the Vista Task Scheduler does not just work on a timer basis, it also works on a trigger basis, such as :  do this when the PC boots up, do this when a remote user connects, do this when this other program completes this other task, etc...  This very much enhanced implementation of the Task Scheduler not only makes it very useful for system engineers to provide very advanced condition‑based behaviour modification of PCs  (e.g. email me when this finishes), it also means that Windows Vista itself can use the Task Scheduler for a variety of system tasks, and this is indeed what Vista does.  It uses the Task Scheduler to start vital background processes.  It is not uncommon, for example, for over 50 specific tasks to be started and completed in this manner when your Vista PC boots up :  start sound capabilities once core kernel and drivers are fully loaded;  on user logon work out which notifications this user has configured for availability and display the appropriate icons;  etc..., etc...

Recommendation :
Leave alone – the Task Scheduler Engine is absolutely vital for the proper functioning of Windows Vista as well as for the ability for your own scheduled or triggered tasks to run properly.




Task Host – Generic Host Process for Windows 7 32-bit Services.  The full path to this file should be shown in  The Ultimate Troubleshooter  as  C:\Windows\System32\Taskhost.exe  (you can double-click on this entry to view the full path).  Windows 7.

TASKHOST is difficult, if not impossible, to explain in layman easy-to-understand-by-everyone terms.  So this process is one of the rare processes where Plain English is simply not possible – we will have to go technical !

TASKHOST is a generic process which acts as a host for processes that run from DLLs rather than EXEs.  At startup TASKHOST checks the Services portion of the Registry to construct a list of DLL-based services that it needs to load, and then loads them.  There can be many instances of TASKHOST running, as there will be one instance of TASKHOST for every DLL-based service or grouping of services (the grouping of services is determined by the programmers who wrote the services in question).

In TUT you can find out what DLL-based services this  TASKHOST  is running by hovering the mouse over this entry in the  Task Name  column (after a little delay a popup will appear which shows you the hosted services)

Recommendation :

An integral part of the operating system, leave alone – multiple instances of TASKHOST is a normal occurrence.

If you experience TASKHOST errors (a regular occurrence during the public beta testing of Windows 7), the problem is most likely not with TASKHOST but with the DLLs it is hosting.  However, if you experience a lot of TASKHOST errors, and particularly, if the full path to  TASKHOST.EXE  is not any of the above, then you may have a virus and should run a virus scan with a reputable antivirus program.

Taskmgr  (1)



The Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003 Task Manager.  This is the very Task Manager itself, the one that you brought up to see what background tasks were running !   In Windows 95/98/ME the Task List does not show up as a separate process when you press  Ctrl+Alt+Del,  but in Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003 the Task List is a separate process called the Task Manager in the shape of the  TASKMGR.EXE  and which runs permanently.  The path for this program, as shown in  The Ultimate Troubleshooter,  is  C:\WINNT\System32\Taskmgr.exe  or  C:\WINDOWS\System32\Taskmgr.exe.

Recommendation :  
Leave alone, obviously.

Taskmgr  (2)



If you are running Windows 2000/XP/2003 and you do  not  have the Windows Task Manager currently open, or if you are running Windows 95/98/ME, then you have the   Trojan.StartPage.G   virus, or one of the viruses that masquerades as the Task Manager.

Taskmon  (1)



The Windows Task Monitor.  In theory the Task Monitor monitors your hard disks accesses.  This information is then passed on to the Disk Defragmenter to supposedly enable it to defragment and rearrange the information on your hard disk in such a way that the programs and files you access the most, will load faster.  First introduced in Windows 98, and also implemented in Windows ME, but in no other versions of Windows.

Recommendation :
This task belongs to another era !  On modern PCs (2000 onwards) the supposed benefits are negligible, if not totally unnoticeable.  This task, like the notorious FindFast, is a useless task.  Delete immediately on the  Startups  tab of  The Ultimate Troubleshooter; next delete all files in the  C:\Windows\Applog  folder, and then restart your PC.

Taskmon  (2)



You may have the   W32.Novarg.A@mm / W32/Mydoom@mm / WORM_Mimail.R   virus, or one of the many other viruses (e.g. W32.Mydoom.J@mm) which masquerade as the Windows Task Monitor. 

Recommendation :
If you have reputable daily updated antivirus software, then you do not need to worry, otherwise make sure you install good and up‑to‑date antivirus software and then run a full virus scan in  Safe Mode  to make sure you do not have a virus.

Taskswitch TaskSwitch.exe

Microsoft’s enhanced Alt+Tab for Windows XP which is part of the Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP.  Whereas the standard Alt+Tab facility simply lists the names of opened programs that you can switch to, TaskSwitch goes further by showing a preview window of each program you can switch to with Alt+Tab.

Recommendation :
None. If you do not want this task, de-install the TaskSwitch PowerToy via "Add/Remove Programs".



(Voyetra Turtle Beach)

A program that gets installed into your Tray when you install a Voyetra Turtle Beach sound card.  This programs is not vital and all its features can be accessed through the Control Panel.

Recommendation :
Disable or Delete using  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.

Tbnote TbNote.exe

(SPIS Ltd.)
TurboNote System Tray icon which enables you to do all TurboNote activities from that icon.

Recommendation :
Essential to the use of TurboNote.
Tcpsvcs TCPSvcs.exe

Microsoft TCP/IP Services Application for Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003. This task loads if you have configured  Windows with special TCP/IP services, such as the DHCP Server, Simple TCP, TCP/IP Print Services to print to a printer using an internal or external print server (a print server is, effectively, a network card for a printer), etc...

Recommendation :
Essential – Leave alone.



See   IWAR.



(Safer Networking Ltd)

SpyBot Sytems Settings Protector task which runs in the System Tray and which is installed when you install  SpyBot Search & Destroy 1.3 or later.  This task has the dual function of providing on the one hand a System Tray icon which enables the end-user to configure or run SpyBot options  on‑the‑fly,  and on the other hand it warns the user if programs which SpyBot does not know about, attempt to modify the Windows Registry.

Recommendation :
At the time of writing, 25‑Mar‑2005, we feel that this task is potentially too dangerous.  We would like to see the following option on the right-click menu for  TEATIMER :  “Disable Registry Changes Monitoring”.   While we think that SpyBot is a brilliant product, it is our view that the majority of end‑users will not have the required technical knowledge to really know when or when not to block Windows Registry changes, with the results that we have already witnessed too often where end-users end-up with vital software not functioning properly because the end-user thought it was a good idea to block the Registry change which  TEATIMER  alerted him/her to !   Our recommendation, therefore, is to right-click on the  TEATIMER  icon in the System Tray and choose  Exit SpyBot S&D Resident  and to then disable this task on the  Startups  tab of  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.

Teekids Teekids.exe

You have the W32.BLASTER.C virus.
Tesckey TEscKey.exe

Toshiba Escape Key handler.  Enables you to program and use the <FN><Esc> key combination to perform a specific function.

Recommendation :
You can disable it with  The Ultimate Troubleshooter  if you have not programmed that key.
Tfswctrl Tfswctrl.exe

Background task for Hewlett-Packard’s DLA software (Drive Letter Assignment).  HP’s DLA gets installed when you installed the software that comes with their CD/DVD Writers.  HP’s DLA is packet writing software which enables you to store data onto CD’s directly from within Windows applications, without using the actual CD Writing software (much like Roxio’s DirectCD.

Recommendation :
Many users have reported shutdown problems caused by TFSWCTRL "not responding".  In all cases, since they were never using the DLA software and were instead using the CD Writing software to create their CDs, they simply de-installed HP’s DLA and that solved all their problems with TFSWCTRL.



(PC Tools)

PC Tools ThreatFire System Tray icon.   System Tray icon for the ThreatFire Antivirus program.  Double-clicking the icon enables you to open the ThreatFire Control Center while right-clicking on it enables the user to run specific features of ThreatFire (e.g. Update, open Control Center, etc...

Recommendation :
Keep.  This icon provides a useful visual indication of the status and health of your antivirus protection and it also notifies you of special events.

Tfunckey TFuncKey.exe

Toshiba Function Key handler. Enables you to program and use the <FN><F1> to <F4> key combinations (e.g. <FN><F1> to start email, <FN><F2> to start your browser, etc...).

Recommendation :
You can disable it with  The Ultimate Troubleshooter  if you have not programmed any of those keys.

T g c m d

T g c m d.exe

(Tioga software /

This is the sort of software we classify as spyware.  It is part of Tioga Software’s remote support and management tools (Tioga.com, Support.com, and SupportSoft.com are one and the same company) and is installed by the setup CD of the  @Home  ISP (@Home and MediaOne are now part of Comcast, with the ComcastSupport software being the main culprit for introducing T G C M D on a PC).  The Tioga/SupportSoft.com software is also included in the Sony Support software that comes with some Sony Vaio’s and HP Pavillion’s, and it is also part of the BellSouth DSL HelpCenter.  The original intention of T G C M D is to have your @Home service or systems software automatically updated when you are online, to provide a remote support technician with setup information about your PC, and, in some cases, to allow the remote support technician to connect to your PC and see what you are doing – in short, technical support is indeed the original intention; unfortunately, its features are also very useful to advertisers and so, depending on who supplied it, T G C M D will also collect information from your PC, which web pages you have visited, what you have downloaded, and permission based information about your system, its software, its settings, etc…  As if that were not enough for us to recommend disabling it, it has additionally also been known to create a  WININIT.INI  file in the Windows folder, something which straight away prevents Windows ME users from using the extremely valuable System Restore feature of Windows ME.  Finally, many users have also reported :  being unable to clear the Internet history files when it is running, Eudora startup problems, SDCSchedulerWindow error messages on shutdown of Windows, and inability to delete video, audio, or graphics files.

Recommendation :
If you are a Comcast customer, uninstall  “Comcast Support”  through the  Add/Remove  icon in your Control Panel.  Next, look up  BJCFD  in these Task List pages.  If you have a Sony Vaio, de-install the  “Vaio Support Agent”  through the  Add/Remove  icon in your Control Panel.  If you are a BellSouth DSL customer, uninstall the  “BellSouth HelpCenter”.  In all cases, if the un‑installation of Comcast Support or Vaio Support Agent or BellSouth HelpCenter does not remove T G C M D after a reboot, then immediately disable T G C M D on the  Startups  tab of  The Ultimate Troubleshooter !

Tgshell TGSHELL.exe

(Tioga Software / Support.com)

Read T G C M D above.

Recommendation :
Absolutely nightmarish software which eats up CPU, drives the hard disk hard, causes boot-up Kernel32 errors, generates illegal operations, invalid page faults, and much more.  De-install as per instructions for T G C M D above.




Microsoft’s Input Method Editor for Asian languages.  Startup task found on PCs where  East Asian  languages have been installed through the  Regional and Language options  icon in the Control Panel.  This task ensures that your PC is able to display East Asian languages (e.g. Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, etc) and also that you are able to input characters in those languages should you need to.

Recommendation :
Leave alone – it is necessary for your PC to properly support the East Asian language support that you installed into Windows.



TiVo Beacon


(TiVo Inc)

TiVo Beacon Service.  Service which discovers your TiVo Digital Video Recorder(s), DVRs, on your home network, and which establishes a connection once discovered – thereafter you can use the TiVo Desktop software to program the TiVo box, or to play or transfer recorded shows.  A TiVo Digital Video Recorder, or DVR, is a hard disk based box which will automatically record to its hard disk your favourite TV programmes and TV shows.  You can then replay those programs later directly on your TV, PC, laptop, or transfer them to DVD or directly to the laptop or PC.

Recommendation :   Down to end-user requirements.

If you use your TiVo box together with the TiVo Desktop software, then this service must be running to enable your PC or laptop to connect to your TiVo DVR.

If you no longer use a TiVo box, then you either uninstall the software from the  “Add\Remove Programs”  icon in the Control Panel, or you can set the  Startup Mode  of this service to  Manual  or  Disabled  on the  Services  tab of  The Ultimate Troubleshooter  as that alone will not only stop this service from starting, but in so doing will also prevent the TiVo Desktop software from working.

TkBellExe Evntsvc.exe

(Real Networks)
Read EVNTSVC for full details.
Tkonnect TKonnect.exe

Straight from the Tiscali UK website, 27-Nov-2002 :  "A small program that allows you to always keep your Tiscali dial-up settings up-to-date ensuring you always have a fast and reliable connection.  By downloading TKonnect, your dial-up number will automatically be kept up to date.  Tiscali is committed to continually improving your internet experience and ensuring your Tiscali service is second to none.  Therefore this software allows you to connect on the numbers that will provide you with the best available service automatically".

Recommendation :
Has anyone told Tiscali UK that one of the golden rules of being an ISP is that they should change access numbers only extremely rarely with the emphasis on "never", instead of spending money on developing a program which will automatically update end-users’ dial-up connections with new access numbers !!  As an AnswersThatWork user put it :  "It's small and relatively harmless, but if everyone took liberties with your system in this way you would have no memory left.".  We have worked with Tiscali UK users and you definitely do not need this piece of software. You will find the instructions on how to uninstall it here.




Microsoft’s Telnet Server service for Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003.  When running, this service gives Telnet access to remote users.  For the layman :  Telnet access is a method of connecting and login onto a remote computer and run DOS commands, command-line programs, and DOS commands which can start Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003 services on the remote PC/server.

Recommendation :
This service should only ever be turned ON by advanced users who know about Telnet, who know what they are doing, and who know how to securely configure their PC/server with Telnet services running (ie: through securely restricting access to a specifically set up “Telnet Users” group).  In all other cases the safest startup setting for this service is  Disabled.  If you find your Telnet Server service set to start at boot-up, and you know you do not want to provide Telnet services, then you most probably are infected by a virus or were at some stage prior – as and when you are clear of viruses, make sure this service is set back to  Disabled  if you know this PC/server is not meant to provide Telnet access.  You can modify the startup mode of this service by going to  “Control Panel \ Services”  in Windows NT4,  or  “Control Panel \ Administrative Tools \ Services”  in Windows 2000/XP/2003.



(Trend Micro)

Trend Micro Manager Server process.  Background service installed by the Trend Micro security products (Antivirus, Internet Security, Firewall) and whose role is to monitor any unauthorized attempt by a virus or other malware, to tamper with any of the Trend Micro programs and files in order to compromise your PC and open a door through the security of your PC.

Recommendation :
Absolutely essential to the integrity of your Trend Micro security software – Leave alone therefore.

This program normally uses between  4Mb and 15Mb  of memory.




Task which is part of Toshiba Mobile Extensions and found on current Toshiba laptops (2003 onward).

Recommendation :  
We do not yet know what this task does, so we can only recommend that you leave it alone.




Task which is part of Toshiba Mobile Extensions and found on current Toshiba laptops (2003 onward).

Recommendation :
We do not yet know what this task does, so we can only recommend that you leave it alone.




Toshiba Mobile Extension Slim Select Bay Service.  Task/Service found on Toshiba laptops running Windows 2000/XP and which enables the DVD+CD‑Writer to be hot swappable.

Recommendation :  
You can disable this task if you have no intention of ever taking the DVD+CD‑Writer out while the laptop is turned ON.  This task is sometimes installed as a startup task, in which case you will be able to disable it with  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.  In other cases it is installed as a service, in which case go to  “Control Panel \ Administrative Tools \ Services”   and set this service to Manual.  If you experience problems getting your Toshiba laptop to hibernate, try disabling this task as a first step towards solving the problem.




Toshiba Mobile Extensions Service.  Background task which provides support for the Toshiba Mobile Extensions.

Recommendation :
Essential.  While you may decide you do not need some of the Toshiba Mobile Extensions features, you should still leave this task alone as it is required for  any  Toshiba Mobile Extension feature to work.

Tmlisten TMListen.exe

(Trend Micro)
Trend Micro OfficeScan NT Listener task – Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003.  OfficeScan is an antivirus solution for networks which features automated deployment options and software updates, centralized management reporting, and security policies.  On the end-user PCs TMLISTEN "listens" for antivirus definitions updates or administrative commands from the OfficeScan server (e.g. "do a scan right now, or at a specific time today").  We are not sure yet of the role of TMLISTEN on the server.

Recommendation :
Essential for the proper functioning of your Trend Micro network antivirus protection.  That said, TMLISTEN has had its share of problems;  thus, if you experience TMLISTEN running away with CPU cycles (your PC regains responsiveness after you terminate it !), talk to your network manager and ensure that all software updates and patches from Trend Micro have been installed, followed by a full virus scan of your PC.  We have also ourselves seen poor network card drivers and chipsets cause TMLISTEN to shoot up to 80%-90% of CPU processing power.  You can disable TMLISTEN with  The Ultimate Troubleshooter  while troubleshooting problems with it – your PC will still be protected against viruses; just make sure you do manual updates daily.



(Trend Micro)

Real-time scanning task of the PC-Cillin antivirus software.  This task works in the background and scans files for viruses as and when you access them, or whenever you save new files to the hard disk.

Recommendation :
Essential to the proper protection of your PC – Leave alone.  Note :  if you run Windows 2000/XP and you run PC-Cillin 2000 or 2001, you should upgrade to the 2003 version as those earlier versions have had regular problems when running under Windows 2000 or XP.



(Trend Micro)

Trend Micro’s  Outbreak Agent  background task which is part of Trend Micro Internet Security suite.  This task provides  Virus Outbreak Alerts.  If a new major virus is released, and Trend Micro know there will be some lag before they are able to provide the necessary updates for their antivirus products to properly handle the new virus, then  virus outbreak alerts  are made available.  If you are connected to the Internet, or when you next connect to the Internet,  TMOAGENT  picks up these alerts and displays them – such alerts will typically  inform you of the characteristics of the new virus, they will tell you what to watch out for, the type of email attachments NOT to open, the sort of PC behaviour or strange new tasks that may be involved, etc...

Recommendation :
Down to end-user preference.  In our opinion this is essentially an excellent concept.  However, some users may decide that the frequency of virus alerts is too disruptive and they may want to disable outbreak alerts because they feel that in any case they are usually careful enough not to open attachments that look suspicious.  If this is you, you can disable outbreak alerts by going to   “Start \ Programs \ Trend Micro Internet Security \ Outbreak Warning Settings”  and uncheck  Enable Outbreak Alert to provide proactive recommendations.  Next, reboot and then disable this task on the  Startups  tab of  The Ultimate Troubleshooter  if it still shows as enabled.



(Trend Micro)

Background task in Windows 95/98/ME, and Service in Windows NT4/2000/XP, which is installed by Trend Micro  Internet Security suite.  TMPROXY is used by Trend Micro’s Internet Security suite to virus scan both POP email traffic and webmail emails (Webmail are services such as Hotmail, Yahoo, etc..) and is also used to check that the web pages you access do not have malicious embedded ActiveX or Java code which could harm your PC or infect it with viruses.

Recommendation :
Essential for the proper functioning of your Trend Micro  PC‑cillin Internet Security  software – Leave alone therefore.  Note, however, that there have occasionally been significant issues with this task in the past, ranging from frustrating Internet Explorer problems to TMPROXY using up too much memory (60Mb and upward!).  At the time of writing, 8‑Jan‑2006, all these problems have been fixed and we know of no issues with this task.  Nevertheless, if you start experiencing Internet Explorer problems, slow Internet access, email problems, or you run out of memory, experiment with turning off virus scanning of emails and web pages in PC‑cillin Internet Security and see if that helps after rebooting your PC.



(Apache Software Foundation)

Apache Tomcat 7 HTTP & Java Web Server service.  Apache Tomcat (formerly known a Jakarta Tomcat) is an open source web server and servlet container developed by the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). Tomcat implements the Java Servlet (Java programming code running on a web server) and the JavaServer Pages (JSP) specifications from Oracle, and provides a "pure Java" HTTP web server environment for Java code to run in.  Apache Tomcat is one of the three main  dynamic content  web server environments :  PHP, Microsoft’s ASP.NET, and Apache Tomcat.  There are many other web server technologies but these three are the Big 3.

The Apache Tomcat Web Server will typically get installed by another program which you install and which needs to use Java web services on your PC \ Server.  Novell, for example, are a big user of Tomcat which they install when you install NDS (Novell Directory Services) on a Windows server prior to installing Novell GroupWise.  Sage Software install it with their CRM software;  Netgear is another manufacturer which uses Apache Tomcat for its router configuration software (if you decide to install the CD that came with your Netgear router rather than access it directly through a web browser).

Recommendation :  
Even if you did not deliberately install the Apache Tomcat Java Web Server infrastructure, we strongly suggest you leave it alone as it was most probably installed by another program which you installed and that program needs it.  Unless, of course, you absolutely know which program installed Tomcat and you no longer use that program and have uninstalled it anyway.

This background service normally uses around 250Mb of memory.




Toshiba Online Product Information.  Background task which happily sits in your System Tray gobbling up from 19Mb to 27Mb of memory (with rare laptops having this task use only 5Mb of memory) and whose only role is to occasionally download from the Toshiba website Help Desk documents specific to your laptop when you open it by double-clicking on he icon.  Having this program running permanently in the System Tray is paranoia :  how often does one run into problems with one’s laptop (after it has been optimized with TUT) ?   Very rarely is the answer.  For this reason there is no point having this task running all the time at every Windows boot-up – if you run into a problem and want to consult what alerts Toshiba may have released specifically about your laptop, then simply open this program from  “Start \ All Programs \ Toshiba”  as and when you need to.

For those who like to know such things, note that this program sends Toshiba your Serial Number and IP address when you open it.  Here is the full text from Toshiba on this at the time of writing, 28-Aug-2008 :

6)   That’s it – You’re done !




Toshiba Bluetooth Manager.  Startup task installed by the drivers for Toshiba Bluetooth USB dongles and also found on laptops where the integrated Bluetooth is made by Toshiba.  This task has the dual role of spawning various background tasks which, together, form part of the Bluetooth drivers, and of displaying as the classic Bluetooth icon in the System Tray which gives you access to the configuration screen of your Bluetooth adapter.

Recommendation :
Down to end-user requirements.

If you hardly ever use Bluetooth, as in almost never, you could decide to disable this task on the  Startups  tab of  The Ultimate Troubleshooter  and only enable it (or launch it) as and when you need it on the one or two occasions that you need it each year, particularly since this task, together with the 4 to 6 other tasks that it spawns (TosA2dp, TosAVRC, TosBtHid, TosBtHsp, TosBtProc,TosOBEX), normally uses anything from 34Mb to 48Mb of memory.

Toshibsu ToshibSu.exe

Task found on Toshiba laptops and which handles hibernation by saving all data to disk after the specified hibernation delay.

Recommendation :
Only ever disable if you do not use any power saving or hibernation settings (ie: they are all OFF).




Toshiba Wireless Hotkey.  This task provides support for the  Fn+F8  wireless hotkey on Toshiba laptops which have Wi-Fi (wireless networking) and/or Bluetooth support  (typically Toshiba laptops from 2003 onward).  Using that function key combination the end‑user can toggle between enabling or disabling Wi‑Fi, Bluetooth, or both.  Depending on whether one or both are available on the laptop, a small screen pops up presenting the end-user with 2 or 4 on/off toggling options when  Fn+F8  is pressed.

Recommendation :  
You can disable this task with  The Ultimate Troubleshooter  if you are never likely to use this toggling facility, or if you do not use the built-in Wi‑Fi or Bluetooth capabilities (if that is you, first toggle both to OFF, and then disable this task).  If you are not sure about whether or not you are using Wi‑Fi and Bluetooth, leave this task alone.




Toshiba HDD & SSD Alert.  HDD = Hard Disk Drive.  SSD = Solid State Drive.  SSDs are hard disk drives made purely of RAM rather than rotating disk plates.

Background task found on Toshiba laptop and whose functions are :   a) to alert you if the automatic Self-Monitoring Analysis Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T) built into your laptop’s hard drive, whether it is a conventional hard drive or a solid state drive, indicates that the drive is developing faults;  and  b) to speed up the shutdown time of your laptop under Windows 7.

You can manually check the state of your laptop’s hard drive through 
“All Programs \ Toshiba \ Utilities \ HDD SSD Alert”.


Recommendation :

S.M.A.R.T  is, in our experience, only able to predict 30% of hard disk failures.  What is certain, however, is that if  S.M.A.R.T  picks up a problem, you absolutely MUST take heed of the warning and immediately backup all your data and emails and make plans to have your hard disk replaced as quickly as possible.  So, while this background task is a long way from being able to predict hard disk failures with great accuracy (and for this reason you should regularly take backups), it still has enough potential to be useful in saving you a lot of aggravation, so we suggest you leave it running.

This background task normally uses 3Mb to 9Mb of memory.

Note :   TUT has an extensive  S.M.A.R.T  section on the  SYSTEM INFO  tab – check it out.

Tp4mon TP4Mon.exe

We think this is the TrackPoint Monitor background task for older IBM ThinkPads.

Recommendation :
None, as we are not yet sure as what this task really does.




Lenovo TrackPoint Service.   Background service found on Lenovo laptops which enables the use of the TrackPoint stick  (the TrackPoint is the little red or yellow stick in the middle of the laptop’s keyboard which can be used as a mouse in addition to the TouchPad).

Recommendation :   If you use the TrackPoint on your Lenovo laptop, then you need to leave this background service running, of course.  As for those users who do not use the TrackPoint, leaving this background service running has the benefit of ensuring that if you one day need to use the TrackPoint then you will be able to without having to remember that you disabled its support in TUT, particularly since this background service uses very little memory anyway (1Mb to 3Mb).

Note :  On Lenovo laptops produced since 2007 you can disable the TrackPoint through one of the icons in the System Tray, or you can have it set to be disabled if a mouse is plugged in.  Modifying the TrackPoint behaviour through its System Tray icon rather than through TUT is our recommendation.



ThinkPad Hotkey Manager task.  This background task handles the FN keys on your IBM ThinkPad laptop.  Some of these FN keys are programmed to do specific tasks by default, such as bringing up the Help, putting the laptop "to sleep", or playing with your audio settings, but you can re-program these keys to perform other tasks if you wish – TPHKMGR must be running for your settings to be implemented every time you hit an FN key combination.

Recommendation :
Leave alone – some of the default FN key combinations are extremely useful, if not essential sometimes; you may need them one day !
Tppaldr TPPaldr.exe

TPP Auto Loader Application. Background task installed with the drivers for DataStor’s USB 2.0 based external cases for DVD, CD-ROM, and CD-Writer drives, or also installed by the Ahead’s InCD packet writing software (direct write to rewritable CDs).  Many DataStor products are re-badged by other manufacturers so this task will be found in other manufacturers’ products (e.g LaCie).

Recommendation :
If you save documents and files directly to CD (via InCD) rather than through CD-Writing software, then you will need this task running.  If you always use CD-Writing software, then disable TPPALDR with  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.
Tppstray TPPstray.exe

TPP System Tray. Background task installed with the drivers for DataStor’s USB 2.0 based external cases for DVD, CD-ROM, and CD-Writer drives.  Many DataStor products are re-badged by other manufacturers so this task will be found in other manufacturers’ products (e.g LaCie).

Recommendation :
We do not know enough about this task to recommend anything other than to leave it alone.



(Panda Software)

Panda   TruPrevent   Service installed by Panda Antivirus 2006 or Panda Internet Security 2006 on Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003 PCs.  Using behavioural and heuristic techniques this service is crucial in the ability of your Panda security software to detect programs as highly probable viruses even when the Panda software does not yet know what exact viruses they are thanks to updated virus definitions.

Recommendation :
Crucial to the thoroughness of your Panda antivirus software – Leave alone.



(Panda Software)

Panda   TruPrevent   Startup task installed by Panda Antivirus 2006 or Panda Internet Security 2006 on Windows 98/ME PCs.  Using behavioural and heuristic techniques this service is crucial in the ability of your Panda security software to detect programs as highly probable viruses even when the Panda software does not yet know what exact viruses they are thanks to updated virus definitions.

Recommendation :
Crucial to the thoroughness of your Panda antivirus software – Leave alone.




Lenovo ThinkPad Windows Audio Application.  Background task found on Lenovo laptops which provides background support for the  Fn+Esc,  Fn+F1, and  Fn+F2  function key combinations which automatically open the Windows Volume Control and then enable the user to mute, turn ON, or increase or decrease the volume purely through those function keys.  The Volume Control screen automatically goes off the screen 3 seconds after the user stops using the above keys.

Recommendation :
The Windows Volume Control can sometimes be a little reluctant to open when you double-click on it with the mouse, particularly when there are lots of things going on in the background and particularly on Windows XP.  This is a great little program, using next to no memory, which enables the user to  reliably  control the sound through  Fn  combinations, and it is of even greater value for users who use their laptop without an external mouse.  Keep.




Toshiba Power Management icon which sits in the System Tray.  Clicking on the icon enables the user to access the Toshiba Power Management Options.

Recommendation :
In our view most users will not need this icon once they have configured their laptop after initial purchase, as power management is the sort of feature one usually only configures once.  Even without this icon the power management features can still be accessed through clicking the  Performance and Maintenance  icon in the Control Panel and then  “Toshiba Power Management”.  Disable this task with  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.

Trayclnt Trayclnt.exe

System Tray icon for MSN subscribers which gives users a quick way to connect to MSN.  Microsoft produce wonderful software sometimes, but when are they ever going to get their act together with MSN ?  From the resources crusher LOADQM to the often hanging, not responding, illegal operation culprit TRAYCLNT, MSN beggars belief and frustrates too many users.

Recommendation :
Many users will at some stage or other experience problems with TRAYCLNT. Sometimes re-installing MSN cures the problem, at other times extracting the MAILCOM.DLL file with the System File Checker or MSCONFIG also does the trick.  Our advice, however :  if TRAYCLNT is giving you problems, disable it with  The Ultimate Troubleshooter  – you do not actually need it.




Utterly useless System Tray icon which gets installed with some Aztech sound cards.

Recommendation : 
Delete using  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.

True Vector


(Zone Labs)

Essential component of the Zone Alarm Internet firewall software.  It is started via the registry in Windows 9x/ME, and as a service in NT/2000/XP/2003.  This program enforces the security rules which you configured on the Zone Alarm screens.

Recommendation : 
Essential to the proper running of Zone Alarm;
  leave well alone.


(Conducent / TimeSink)
This is about the worst type of advertising spyware (adware) you can find on the web.  Difficult to de-install, significantly hammers your network with connection attempts if it operates behind a firewall and cannot connect to Conducent’s ad servers, and a significant proportion of the ads that it displays on your PC are full page ads.  TSADBOT comes with free versions of software packages such as PKZIP for Windows.  As if the above problems were not enough, at the time of writing of this page TimeSink / Conducent seem to have gone out of business with the result that TSADBOT makes endless attempts to connect to non-existing servers, thereby seriously degrading the performance of your Internet connection.

Recommendation :
While the software manufacturers who use TSADBOT will sing a different tune, we feel no-one should ever use software which makes use of such ill-behaved adware.  Look for alternatives, there usually are some pretty good ones, and the reason for this advice is that most products which use TSADBOT will not work if you de-install, delete, or try to disable this advertising spyware. As a result our advice is :  check with us to see if we know an alternative "free" product for the product you are using – if we do know one, then de-install your present software, download, install, and run SpyBot Search & Destroy from our Downloads section to remove TSADBOT and all other TimeSink advertising spyware, and then install the alternative product we have suggested.
Tsircsrv TSIRCSrv.exe

Internet Remote Connection Server task for Laplink Gold 11.

Recommendation :
Essential for the proper functioning of Laplink Gold 11 when connecting two computers over the Internet rather than via cable.  If you do not use the connection-via-the-Internet feature, you can disable this task with  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.
Tsircusr TSIRCUsr.exe

Internet Remote Connection User task for Laplink Gold 11.

Recommendation :
Essential for the proper functioning of Laplink Gold 11 when connecting two computers over the Internet rather than via cable.  If you do not use the connection-via-the-Internet feature, you can disable this task with  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.





You have the  W32.HLLW.Warpigs.C  virus, also known as  Backdoor.Spyboter.gen.

Tsystray TSysTray.exe

(Real Networks)
System Tray icon for Real Jukebox.

Recommendation :
We have absolutely nothing good to say about Real Jukebox.  In our experience all versions of the software contribute to an incredible slow-down of the PC, sometimes making it unusable.  We can make only one recommendation and that is to de-install Real Jukebox.



(Tune-Up Utilities)

Tune-Up Utilities System Tray icon.   This is the System Tray icon for Tune-Up Utilities 2010 and later.  You can double-click on the icon to bring up a menu of options to start the Control Center or perform some operations with the Utilities, or you can right-click on the icon to do the same sort of thing as well.

Recommendation :
Down to end-user requirement.

To help you make this decision, please know that this background service uses anything from 5Mb  to 27Mb, and this every time you use your PC.

This System Tray icon runs whenever the TuneUp Utilities Service is running.




You have the  TurboV EVO  overclocking utility from ASUS running in the background (or open on your screen, or set as a startup item).  ASUS’s  Turbo EVO  is a utility which enables the user to overclock the PC (running the CPU at a speed higher than it was originally designed for).

Recommendation :
Down to end-user requirements.

This utility normally uses anything from 2Mb to 34Mb of memory, with the memory consumption between 26Mb and 34Mb on most PCs.  So, if you do not overclock your PC then you really should not have that utility running consuming memory unnecessarily and should disable it on the  Tasks  tab of  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.

Even if you actually want to be overclocking your PC, we have found that on Windows 7 this utility is often responsible for random reboots, crashes, or freezes.  Although all of these problems can be the symptoms of excessive overclocking, the fact is that we have observed this behaviour in situations where the  Auto‑Tune  feature of the program was being used (supposedly the safest way to run this program).  If you experience these problems check   www.ATWDOWNLOADS.com   for the latest version of the TurboV program.




TeamViewer display optimisation process.  Background program which is spawned by the main TeamViewer program and whose role is to optimize your remote control and/or screen sharing sessions depending on the speed of your connection and various other parameters (such as your screen resolution, display driver, etc...).

Recommendation :
Leave alone – this process is a spawned process and is necessary for TeamViewer to function properly.

This background program normally uses 1Mb to 6Mb of memory.




Lenovo ThinkVantage Registry Monitor Service.  As per Lenovo’s description :   “The Thinkvantage Registry Monitor Service is a common service which will automatically start when either Client Security Solution (finger printing, password manager), Rescue and Recovery, or The ThinkVantage System Update are installed. This service just monitors the Windows registry values used by ThinkVantage products and notifies the ThinkVantage services and applications if any change is detected”.

Recommendation :  
If you do not use any of  the above ThinkVantage features, then you can disable this service on the  Services  tab of  The Ultimate TroubleshooterIf in doubt read on.

Otherwise, when it is well behaved this service uses only 1Mb to 6Mb of memory on the  Tasks  tab of TUT.  If that is the case on your laptop then it is best to leave this service running so that you do not lose functionality with any of the ThinkVantage applications.  On some laptops, however, this background service can sometimes consume way in excess of 10Mb, 15Mb, 20Mb, 30Mb, etc.., of memory, increasing all the time and resulting in sluggish laptop performance and/or very slow laptop boot-ups.  When that is the case either check our  Drivers  page for updates to your ThinkVantage software, or disable this service on the  Services  tab of TUT.

Tvwakeup TVWakeUp.exe

Microsoft’s Hidden TV Control.  Installed when you install WebTV in Windows 98/ME.

Recommendation :
We do not know what this task does, but we do know that if you do not use Microsoft’s WebTV then you can disable/delete this task with  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.



See   IWAR.



(TP-Link Technologies)

TP-Link Wireless Client Utility.  System Tray icon which provides a visual feedback as to the strength of your wireless connection as well as also enabling you to configure your TP-Link wireless network adapter to discover and connect to the available wireless networks.

Recommendation :
Keep – There is nothing like having an instantly recognizable visual confirmation of the state of your wireless connection, and this icon certainly does that.  Additionally, it is extremely useful to be able to access the wireless configuration utility straight from this System Tray icon whenever needed.

This utility normally uses 2Mb to 7Mb of memory.




This entry is actually a startup entry rather than a running task.  The entry will typically show as  rundll32.exe tweakui.cpl, TweakMeUpIt will only be present if you have Microsoft’s  TweakUI  installed.  Advanced Users :  TWEAKUI.CPL  is, essentially, a Control Panel icon for TweakUI, but it is also in fact a  formatted DLL  and the startup command above runs that DLL with the  TweakMeUp  argument so that boot‑up TweakUI settings are implemented as Windows starts up.

Recommendation :
Essential for the proper functioning of TweakUI – Leave alone.  If you want to de‑install TweakUI, do so via the  “Add/Remove Programs”  icon in the Control Panel.



(Twain Working Group)

Twain_32.dll Client’s 16-bit Thunking Server.  Phew!  Let’s jump straight away to layman terms !   First, TWAIN :  TWAIN is originally derived from  Technology Without An Important Name”.  TWAIN, or as it is most commonly know, the  TWAIN Driver,  is a program that is packaged with all scanners and which allows the user to scan images or text directly from the scanner into the application that will be used to manipulate the image or text.  Thus, most graphics programs, and many of the newer Microsoft Office programs, enable you to scan a document directly into the program.  Without the TWAIN driver a user would have to always use a scanner specific software program, save the image to a folder, and then pick up the image from within the application that it was intended to be used in in the first place.  The TWAIN driver has two parts to it :  the 16-bit driver which interfaces with 16-bit applications and scanner driving programs (older generation software from the Windows 95/98 days), and the 32-bit driver which interfaces with more modern applications and scanner driving programs.  The two drivers are needed at all times because you could have a 32-bit program on one side of the driver, e.g. Microsoft PowerPoint 2002, and a 16-bit program on the other side of the TWAIN driver, e.g. the scanner driving program for an oldish scanner.  With this in mind, when a 16-bit program starts the 16-bit portion of the TWAIN driver,  TWUNK_16.EXE comes into action and its sole purpose is to start the 32-bit part of the TWAIN driver in case there should be some 32-bit scanner driving programs on your PC (to drive current generation scanners) so that the program you are about to use is aware of all possible scanners connected to your system, whether they are old or new generation scanners.

Recommendation :
Essential – Leave alone.

Type32 Type32.exe

Background task which is installed as part of the Intellitype software which comes with the Microsoft Office Keyboard.  The Microsoft Office Keyboard enables you to program specific keys to perform specific functions, and TYPE32 needs to be running in the background for the keys you have re-programmed to work exactly as you intended them to.

Recommendation :
Absolutely necessary if you use the Hot Keys.  If you do not, then you can disable TYPE32 with  The Ultimate Troubleshooter.

All of the tasks below, and many more, although not detailed on this page, are explained in full in The Ultimate Troubleshooter.
