| robert|| It came installed with my sony vaio Laptop... it's supposed to enable additional keys |
| Vash_T.S.|| It's a Software That Enables Hotkey Commands (Programmable) Linked in Additional Keys Often External From Keyboards. Used on Notebooks |
| Vash_T.S.|| It's Also Used for OSD Commands |
| Coalminer|| came also with some Samsung Notebooks... just for the Hotkeys See also: Link |
| chris|| After 7 months using my new Sony VAIO, something changed on my system (don't know what) and now Hcontrol.exe causes Outlook Express to open every time Windows starts up. Not harmful, but irritating nevertheless. When hcontrol.exe is disabled my hotkeys still work, as far as I can tell... |
| Fred|| Empfohlen bei Asus Notebook |
| Marcus Smith|| Installed on Asus Laptops, provides short-cut keys (Function Key + Function Numbers) to useful features such as turning wireless on/off etc. |
| Marieke|| I can't launch the Internet Explorer anymore - other ATK driver installed but that didn't help. |
| noname|| might be a hotkey driver problem... |
| niemand|| nix gefährliches |
| Robin M.|| Sony Laptop. After upgrade to SP2 Outlook Express started automatically; now the same thing happens after adding Microsoft updates. I will disable it and see if the problem is cured. |
| || I have an Asus Notebook, and somehow hcontrol.exe at times uses 100% of my CPU speed, which is irritating... |
| Frank McD|| I had the same problem with, and result of fix suggested for, my Sony Vaio as Chris did. It started immediately after installing XP Service Pack 2. Running msconfig startup and enabling items one at a time revealed the problem. |
| jvn|| not essential...unless you want the button to turn wireless on/off to work |
| Sir Lulz|| CPU spikes to 100% under certain conditions, but unsure how to replicate conditions |
