This a streaming video recording program. If you remove it you will not be able to run the "Total Recorder" from High Criteria.
This appears to be a legitimate program so it real just depends if you want that program on your computer. If you decide you do not, uninstall it verse just deleting it.

Total Recorder records PC audio from almost any source, including streamed audio from programs like Windows Media Player. It can also record conventional audio from CD's, the microphone and other input lines on a sound card.

Thanks acklan, I know what it is , I just didn't know if it could still be switched on manually (when you clik TotalRecorder.exe ) without having it automatically start up when you boot.

If it were me, I would just set it to manual start it the Administrative Services. If missing a few MBs of space does not bother you I would not mess with it. Sometimes unistalling a program can have unexpected results.
Good luck on whatever you decide.

Thanks acklan, I believe it's the 'timer' which I've never used, if I want to record something I always have been here to do it. I was'nt so worried about taking up disk space, more wanting to start up quicker, though now I'll've to work out what to do with so many things that when unchecked & rebooted have turned (checked) themselves back on again.

TotRecSched.exe is added when you install Total Recorder and automatically runs at start-up. It is a program that schedules recordings automatically if you've entered any in the program.

You can stop this program from loading at start-up with no adverse effects to the Total Recorder program. If this feature does not load at start up the program will still work as usual when opened.

To stop TotRecSched.exe from loading at start-up follow these directions:

1. Open Total Recorder
2. Go to "Options" in the tool bar
3. Click on "Settings" > General > Restrictions (button) > Check the "Disable scheduler" radio button
4. Click "OK" and "OK" again to close the settings window

BTW Total Recorder is by far one of the best, least expensive and user-friendly sound recording programs that I've ever used. Besides working flawlessly with almost any sound file, it will record any sound being played on your computer and save it as almost any type of file. Highly recommended!
