The original SetPoint.exe (along with KHALMNPR.exe) is the program file for the Logitech Keyboard and Mouse application, which enables you to set the dpi rate for your mouse or to remap your mouse buttons. Normally if you exit the application on the system tray, these 2 exe will disappear from the Task Manager as well. Although if it's in the System32 folder, it's dangerous and should be checked immediately.   IC_Draconis

SetPoint is Logitechs customization utility for KB and mouse. Allows keyboard and mouse shortcuts to be modified. However there are known spy and malware programs which use this name as well. Check location like others have stated. IT SHOULD NEVER BE OUTSIDE OF SETPOINT FOLDER  See also: Link   Parawiss

Had the setpoint.exe error on start-up. Uninstalled logitec setpoint using control panel and it fixed the problem.   B
It has only happened twice in a few months, but the 4 key on the number pad sometimes gets stuck. I even unplug the existing keyboard and the key is seen by the OS as depressed. Ending this process caused the issue to dissappear immediately.   killswitch
Causes my left arrow key to get stuck, too. Bug, not security issue.   Erik
setpoint is the hotkey customization s/w that logitech uses to set keys and adjust settings for their specific mice and keyboards. it works in conjunction with khalmnpr.exe to determine which keybd/mse set you have and what specific buttons can be customized,   Ben M

Most of it is in C:\Program Files\Logitech\Setpoint, other sites said that the location may determine how dangerous it is.   _rick
Consistently messes with my keyboard (causing it to do odd things) and mouse. Only hinders my computers effectiveness.  
It makes the "size" of my fonts and icons cycle very fast, making my computer hard to use until I kill it in task manager.   Pymx

It's harmless - download the installer file from Logitech and reinstall it. Game over.   gullybogan
win7 x64 prevents MS Mappoint from running   Luke
Fights with Malwarebytes security software, causes computer to freeze up. Mouse & keyboard work without it, you jut lose fancy features.   mennikatz
It anticipates my cursor placement where obvious as in checking an okay button.   Eh Yeahbut
Yes, it's Logitech's file, in C:\Progr... folder. But: why do it want to listen to the Net? I stopped this behavior through the (Comodo) Firewall. In my opinion, mouse driver must drive a mouse, not send data about me to Logitech (and who else yet...?).   Lajos
@mennikatz - i have been getting the BSOD periodically. I run Malwarebytes so i decided to uninstall setpoint.exe. i will update this if the BSOD stops   signcarver
