|Yes, it is safe, it comes with the best home video editing system Pinnacle. Tom|
|I run Pinnacle Showcenter and Studio 9. Needed file. Does not like to be disabled (unless you are not using Pinnacle Systems). saratoga63|

|I never ever had anything from Pinnacle Systems GmbH or had ever heard about it, but still I have this on my windows startup. So it must be a trojan, and I'll remove it right now. Luis-CH|
|psdrvcheck.exe is a part of the Pinnacle InstantCopy application. This process is used by Pinnacle InstantCopy to check the drivers. Once loaded it doesn't use any resources so you can leave it enabled. This is a non-essential process. RaMon|
|Related to Pinnacle Studio 9 - DEFINATELY NOT THE BEST HOME EDITING SYSTEM! For a better video editor that let's you edit more layers and doesn't leave hidden crap running on your system try Adobe Premiere.|
|Related to Pinnacle Studio 10.5 as well. Slows machine down. If you can dump Pinnacle then do it. Dave Robinson|
|It comes with WaveLab 5 and Clean 5 and stops XP from seeing any of my optical drives. Once the file was removed from the system dir and the machine was rebooted, the drives reappeared. Doc|
|Although I removed all my Pinnacle-software weeks ago, this process didnīt disapear. I didnīt have problems up till now, but bad uninstalls which, willingly or not, leave running applications, are a security risk. Neither AntiVir nor Ad-Aware SE found the file to be dangerous, so I guess its still the original. aSmD|

|I never ever had anything from Pinnacle Systems GmbH either so it has to be evil dcm|

|Pinnacle Stuido 9 - Is the Best "Home" Editor... Adobe Premiere is considered Professional. It costs a lot more!! WildFlower|
|Pinnacle software comes bundled with Dazzle unit See also: Link Marktheshark|
|in windows 7 the files are located in C:\Windows\SysWOW64. There are also files called PSDrvCheck.NL/PSDrvCheck.IT, etc. They are also save to remove. Annoying as hell that this file doesn't get removed automatically Rens|
|In Window Task Manager of Win 7, right click of mouse on 'PSDrvCheck.exe*32' , Select 'Open File Location', this will bring you to where you want to do manual removal. After un-install, the un-installer program is doing a lousy job. NathL|
|This file does not seem to be removed at the time you uninstall Pinnacle software. While probably useful when you are using their program, it doesn't need to exist when you remove the programs. Yet ANOTHER annoying thing about Pinnacle. :/ Zen|
