Canon Camera Driver Part
It is used by Canon digital cameras for transferring images from camera to the computer. If you have not installed the Canon softwares and you find one in your system, then it might probably be a virus/trojan. Rhythms

It's not working properly. Firefox will not start if it is loaded. Harry

Installs with Canon digital camera software
app failure report in win 7/64
Part of the Canon digital utilities package. Not a problem, but tends to take up CPU & RAM. And Harry, Firefox loads just fine - you have a deeper problem. Mike
Part of Canon Camera Utilities Daniel
As your Canon-camera is not connected to your PC all the time there is absolutely no reason to run this process always. Just start it when you want to connect the camera. Euyasik
