Its just a Jukebox program kinda thing. In my opinion it should be Removed just because it ties up system resources. Can be opened Via Start Menu... Gordon

It's a Creative file yes, but you should be careful about not installing ANY Creative software. It can cause problems. For example, the default USB audio driver does NOT enumerate the SB Extigy properly, at least for digital audio. Can't say about analog.
It assists Windows manage the CD-Rom on Windows 9x and Me systems, however it has no use on faster CD
its for my creative zen sleek mp3 player childofbodom
this auto detect is not dangerous but certain programs like winamp or bsplayer will not play cd's properly (audio ones) without it enabled, doesnt require startup but do not remove lordgreywolf
This file has been detected as a very high threat by mcafee. I had a lot of problems then. i removed the whole program. Then everything started to go normal again. Teraku
Everytime I've reinstalled Windows and then Install the Creative Drivers and Software Windows has not able to autostart CD/DVDs and other strange stuff to my CD/DVD drives disable it from running and go to the MS site link below and to sort out Windows CD/DVD drive problems in the registry.  See also: Link C W

not necessary, but not harmful. and for the dude with enumeration issues with the extigy, enumeration is a combination of the driver files AND the hardware microchips talking to each other, so you may have a bad card. dingo

it used for the zen media players spepper
Uses 1,352k on Win XP Home startup. Seems tied to my Creative Zen Vision W mp3 player. Seems ok to shut it off after computer is started. Jonathan Melusky
for creative players
I had many problems with mine cursor, when I unplugged mine sound blaster, and this process starting with system, when i deleted all from Creative all back to normal.
if its creative labs it is not dangerous and the ppl that have problems with their programs should delete the problem program and use something else ....duhhhhhh!!!
