This process seems to gradually take more Page File Usage without releasing it. It causes my sytem to go low on virtual memory until I use the TaskManager to kill it. It doesn't seem to make a difference with my keyboard.. mjm0715

I downloaded the 9900 keyboard driver directly from Chicony, but Comodo identifies that it carries a virus: Application.Win32.Hooker (a Trojan that steals passwords). I don't know if I should quarantine or delete it. Liz
its a nusance on my computer get it off henry marting
I downloaded it to use an emachine keyboard. Zone alarm firewall reports 'suspicious behaviour' when running this application. The program is trying to access the internet on start-up and at times whilst being used. It may be monitoring use? I am going to delete it. Alan
