A background process for a version of the Toshiba Hotkey Utility, this application monitors the keyboard input for specific shortcuts that are preconfigured by you. The Hotkey interface allows you to assign additional functions or features to keyboard strokes. As 00THotkey.exe runs, if it detects one of the shortcuts assigned in the main Hotkey interface, it will automatically perform the appropriate function. Based in Tokyo, Toshiba specializes in semiconductor technology and PC hardware manufacturing.www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/00thotkey.exe.html

Running Win2K and it has more than once taken over the system and using all resources. System came to a halt. Power off to end the process, you are not allowed to end the task from windows manager. Toshiba should change that part... allow us access to terminate the process when it's running incorrectly. terry, Sydney Australia
