I caught a rash of problems, TDSServ among them, a while back on a vanilla desktop running Win XP Pro, sp3 + latest updates on a modest LAN. (Other computers were unaffected) Seems like I finally got rid of the most persistent junk with SDFix (whoo-hoo! :thumbsup: ).

However, I see a component service I've not noticed before, nor can locate any info on, namely "ZKSYW". There is no info on it in the Services list, and it is set to start Manually.

I could sure use some (plausibly sage :flowers: ) advice as to what to do with this thing, much less what its purpose is.

Many, many thanks --- Dave

Thank you, Mark - I'll get on it tonight (Sunday). Is it appropriate to close this topic? I don't think I as a member - newbie at that - can do it.
