Belongs to Intel Pro/Wireless Network Connection Software Wolf
A resource and memory hog, just let Windows handle wireless... Disable from Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Services. Disable the 3 services named Intel(R) PROset/Wireless (etc)... Reboot, check Performance in Task Manager before and after. Ivan
