Linked to asus enhanced display driver   chimera
Loaded with ASUS Motherboard drivers   Kenneth Cutshall
Needed for the OSD (on screen display) in-game tweaks, like brightness, contrast and gamma. If you want to remove, then uninstall ASUS enhanced driver.   Joe Ballz

asuskbservice.exe - Is a harmless service   Johaun
Solidworks behaves badly in conjunction with this app.  
I disabled the ATK keyboard service in the system configuration utility because I received a stop error on a blue screen each time I switched users.   Nimrod
Have an ASUS A8R-MVP and an ASUS EAX1950PRO so it must be part of an ASUS driver   raptorxp
This file caused windows to crash with a blue screen error "IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL STOP: 0x0000000A". Deleted the file and everything was back to normal   Ghoul
Nvidia driver  See also: Link   Rulo
Joe Ballz is right this is from OSD (on screen display)   Adrian G.
When I play the game ,,Theatre of War,, ... ATKKBService.exe starts using the CPU massivley.. and therefore the game cannot work as it should... its very laggy... and its not the hardware.   propper
I have ASUS Motherboard and Video Card, but it uses up processor ressources, sometimes uses up to 99% and it slows the pc down ALOT! Even the moving stars screen saver is slow!   GODSPEED
Asus display driver   DARTH VADER
Caused weird errors telling that "memory could not be "read" ".  
I had this, it caused my PC to restart during any video application, when it was removed, the problem stopped. It was located in Windows folder   Gamer
Flight sim X crashed the computer when the "fly now" button was pressed. Removing ATK keyboard services from the services tab on msconfig, cleared the fault.   Rory Crute
i have asus graphic card its an asus driver file i tried to stop the process and results were harmful and each time i tried to play video file windows to crash with a blue screen error "IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL STOP: 0x0000000A.   hamid hashmi
Part of Asus-Driver. Came along with my ASUS ATI graphic card, I think its required for the "Asus Splendid" and "Asus OSD" features. Never experienced any problems though.   anchises

This nasty file installed itself on my computer when an ASUS XONAR HDAV 1.3 Deluxe sound card. The soundcard nearly killed my $8-10,000 stereo system (comes on momentarily, maybe 1/2 - 3/4 sec at full volume at over 3.5 volts peak-peak when you turn mute off) so I swiftly removed it from my media centre. Uninstalled it's software but it left this nasty file behind. Complete system hog sometimes causing 3-10sec delay for mouse and keyboard inputs and that is when it did not cause BSoD's. Manually uninstalled it and computer returned to normal. (WinXP 32 bit)   MaddoG
ATKKBService looks like AsusTekKeyBoardService. Came with my Nvidia GeForce 6200 card. RKill closed it, so unclear.   +69
