All comments about htpatch.exe:
HTpatch.exe is part of the SiS AGP patch - BUT unless your processor (and motherboard) supports HyperThreading (HT) and this feature is enabled it will actually SLOW your graphics card by around 6%  See also: Link SferiX

slows the internet connection or disconnects it sometimes aur0n
according to Xoftspy it is of minimal threat. It is classed as a Browser Helper Object. What is not said however is if it is removed, then what becomes of SiS AGP? Is it nullified? C rose

Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal Pro 5.0.20 says "it is a risky software and includes a virus ozlem
HTPatch doesn't work correct !!! If used, DOS applications in fullscreen mode hang immediately (sure valid for Celeron(=no hyperthreading support),WinXP,SP2) Mirek
NOD32 scan ok Ron Nelson
it is a agp driver for a sis motherboard but if you dont have a pentium then it can cause problems with internet explorer and windows media player. jimbob
if you dont have hyperthreading, it does nothing. it just sits there and takes up ram. it might slow down your comptuer a tad if you dont have a lot of ram. thats about it. dmt408
I agree with Mirek's assessment of nuisance factor. Search your mainboard's AGP driver installer folders for "HTpatch*" There may be a "HTuninst.exe" file in the same folder. Run the HTuninst.exe to cleanly uninstall HTpatch.exe references from the windows registry. C:\windows\htpatch.exe file will not be deleted but that is harmless to leave around. My P4S8X mainboard drivers were downloaded from support.asus.com  See also: Link Chris B.

file is not detected as an infection by almost all antivirus softwares. BUT by purging the file from many systems helps me terminate many issues like slow systems. also i noticed that many systems infected by a spyware are containing the htpatch.exe file. One of the system i fixed was fixed by renaming a copy of any txt file by htpatch.exe right after deleting the real .exe file. the spyware just stop regenarating after that manipulation of the htpatch.exe file. steve c.
