""wltrysvc"" stands for ""Wireless Tray Service"" and is a program installed along with the drivers for Broadcom-based wireless network adapters, which allows them to be controlled and configured. (Broadcom doesn't make end products, but rather the chips that are used by other companies, and is one of the most common providers of wireless networking core logic.) This process sits in the system tray and also shows current signal strength as measured by the adapter.http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/wltrysvc.exe.html

Definitely drains resources and wreaks havoc, causing virtual memory to constantly be increased. Causes Commit Charge to slowly creep up over several hours. Confirm by looking at page faults and Handle count in Windows Task Manager.   Mike P

It does not cause a drain on resources for me; probably others had spyware on pc.  
I disabled it and still can access the net through my wireless Linksys router and still get to know my signal strenght. It seems pretty useless, so why not disabling it!   Franc-Sois D.
as soon as i installed it, my computer started to freeze over time. did a registry fix scan, and fixed my registry same problem. only culprit is this camoflaged bastard. But i will see if its not the culprit within a couple of hours.   Albert
This is the program that displays the wifi signal strength bars in the tray. Definitely not necessary, but hard to see how it hurts.   Mart_in68

I noticed this service keeps the BCMWLTRY.EXE process alive. In my case the BCMWLTRY.EXE process has a memory leak that consumed all the memory resources.   Daniel
Wireless program, safe, no harm   Coolpc
Doesn't seem dangerous and doesn't effect my network, so probably safe to remove.   ABG
Its 20kb. A general rule is that viruses and malware are usually 1mb or larger. This does not mean that everything 1mb and higher is a virus. Its harmless   Dweller
