Hey guys. I have an ASUS notebook, and I wanna get rid of some bloatware.
I noticed in task manager there are a bunch of weird processes such as WDC.exe, KBFiltr.exe, Hcontrl.exe, and ATKOSD.exe and such which have no description, but do not allow me to end the process or access their file location.
They are all within the directory of C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ATK Package\ATK Hotkey
I googled some, and apparently they have to do with hotkeys. But I just plain don't trust these applications, even though SAS, Avast, and MBAM all say they're safe.
If they're not necessary, I probably don't use them anyways because I've never used hotkeys before (Unless this has to do with the FN keys for stuff like volume, etc...???)
Before I uninstall ATK Package (Which should in theory get rid of these processes), I just wanted to hear your take the situation before I touch it.
So is Atk Package safe to uninstall? Would I lose any features?
