You can disable it from the Catalyst Control Center (new tab named "Hydravision"). Disabling will close the .EXE files automatically. aki

Makes my mouse lag, along with HydraDM64 Sam
Mouse wasn't responding 100% correctly in Windows 8.1, e.g. when dragging windows around, it behaved as if the mouse button was not pressed all the time. All fine after I disabled this. Not the 1st time I've had problems with AMD software. Paul Roberts

uses all cpu of my desktop.. make my lag and crap
This popped up after I installed my MicroSoft HD-3000 LifeCam so I could use Skype. It gives me additional options when seeing multiple screens. It doesn't need to run on start-up so just disable it. You can use programs (like Revo Uninstaller or CCleaner to do this or do it via the BIOS). The program will still work when you launch the host program (in my case , the LifeCam)it just won't launch on start-up. The program is not dangerous, but why consume PC resources unnecessarily.

Checked it, Not dangerous
