  • Description

    This file is installed with OVI Suite, a phone synching software by Nokia, and other OVI applications such as OVI player.  The file also is used in synching the phone, indexing photos, media files, and other tasks.  According to a statement from Nokia dated Sept. 2, 2011, the next major release of OVI Suite will not have this file.  Other OVI applications, however, will.  Many users state that this file is a severe memory hog.  It is suggested that you disable this startup as the applications will start it when you start the program.  Once finished using the program, it appears that the user must manually stop this file from running.

It is assumed that users are familiar with the operating system they are using and comfortable with making the suggested changes. BleepingComputer.com will not be held responsible if changes you make cause a system failure.

This is NOT a list of tasks/processes taken from Task Manager or the Close Program window (CTRL+ALT+DEL) but a list of startup applications, although you will find some of them listed via this method. Pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL identifies programs that are currently running - not necessarily at startup. Therefore, before ending a task/process via CTRL+ALT+DEL just because it has an "X" recommendation, please check whether it's in MSCONFIG or the registry first. An example would be "svchost.exe" - which doesn't appear in either under normal conditions but does via CTRL+ALT+DEL. If in doubt, don't do anything.
