File: WLKeeper.exe


A wireless connection management process, WLANKeeper starts with Windows and provides profile switching for your wireless network card. It also automatically loads any additional Intel networking software that is installed. If you have an Intel wireless card and the service is installed, the default Windows services for handling wireless (Wireless Zero Configuration) will be disabled. To revert back to Windows default, you must disable WLANKeeper and re-enable the WZC service.http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/wlkeeper.exe.html

It's for the Intel Wireless Network Card. Doesn't use that much resources (~6000 KB RAM), so there's no need to remove it. It's a keeper ;D BadCash
