It enables full configuration and diagnostics for these products. This program should be considered part of the driver package, and thus not touched under normal circumstances.www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/khalmnpr.exe.html

This is part of the Logitech drivers and is not dangerous. You dont nered to install the drivers to use the keyboard or mouse, as stated earlier it allows you to use the extra buttons and program them too. Chernobyl

This will is a part of logitech drivers, do not end this task or else your mous or keyboard my not function the way it should. Justin
Probably it is for Lgitech cordless mouse. It sometimes spend almost 100% of CPU power of my PC system, and it make the system slmost halt!
Logitech saves your mouse sensitivity seperately from the Microsoft built in one. Since they together are used to determine the final sensitivity, KAHLMNPR.exe just sets the Microsoft mouse value to zero.  See also: Link IamGav

This is the driver for the logitech cordless Keyboard and Mouse. They will work without, but some functions will be inactive. e.g. the side scroll option on the mouse wheel will not work and the shortcuts on the keyboard will not function. Saint N

I guess it's part of my logitech bluetooth mouse and Keyboard, but it seems to slow my pc down. after I end the process in the task manager everything runs better. BillerDude
Just change the file to: Khalmnpr.ex_ .works great!
It is a process installed with Logitech Mouse drivers. However, you can disable it in msconfig, and still have full use of your mouse. I have a Logitech MBJ58 Optical Mouse, have it disabled and the mouse works fine, all buttons and the whell included. So turn it off, unless you need more functions than the basic necessities. But you can still set all of the mouse options without it. Ytsejam777
Why can't Logitech name it something that makes more sense. Like mouseassist.exe or mousetool.exe or Logmousething.exe what the crap does KHALMNPR.exe stand for? Dave
this file if rem oved as said many times will change the functions of most logitech hardware IE mouse jeyboards even cams. Robert
SetPoint will start this process anyway so any individual entry for KHALMNPR.EXE can be removed to possibly increase boot speed. Look for it under the Startup tab of msconfig. Wobbly
When I Stopped the process the buttons of my G5 Mouse did'nt work anymore, Don't be so afraid for an unknown file! ;) BomaZ
Got it when I installed my G5 Logitach mouse. Used to let my logitech software control DPI setting instead of windows. seePyou
It's Logitech Software Jere
yes it is from logitech and i dont know too, if u gonna need it...it isnt dangerous ;) andy
Chillax its part of the awesome mouse you got. STFU...
This program keeps resetting user mouse profiles; if you are not using setpoint to control profiles, it should be disabled from running by deleting or renaming the corresponding registry entry under key : HKLM\software\microsoft\cwindows\currentversion\run TheNobes
Comes with Logitech Setpoint Software. Doesn't use CPU cycles at all and I use all the features inc. sensitivity changes for games Loverat
Logitech's buggy mouse software. Mouse will run much better without it (more control and precision) but not at all properly in some games. Mugga

Installed with my Logitech G5 mouse. It is needed for the extra functions for the mouse. namely the SetPoint software drivers so you use more buttons, different ways to scroll, etc. If you bought this mouse and disable this then you wasted alot of money by not being able to access its many features. jmantu

It's controlling additional keys and feautures of Logitech mice. SerBull
It's for my Locitech Trackball Mouse. Without it, my system won't remember that I've set my mouse up as left-handed (switch left and right buttons). It's ok until I reboot without SetPoint, then it defaults to right-handed. However, now that I've re-installed this software, my Logitech Quick Cam won't respond to left/right/up/down commands, and gives me an error if I try to use the Zoom function, in the Control Panel program camcpl.cpl
It is harmless. it is allways something else there is causing the problems. Pande
Logitech Mouse driver. The parent process - Logitech SetPoint. Its usage of RAM is about 2.6mb gif
Big memory hog but programs are not necessary for mouse/keyboard to run. Windows still recognizes them. I uninstalled programs because it slowed my pc A LOT and pc works fine now. MIKE L
There's one in \Windows. There's one in \PF\CF\Logitech\KHAL. That one is more up-to-date and disappears immediately if you run it manually. The one in Windows does not. In Registry the \Run key points to the one in Windows (by not specifying a path, thus relying on your %PATH% env variable). Odd since everything else "Logitech" in the registry is fully-pathed to its specific location. I suspect the one appearing in \Windows is a virus. Not exactly uncommon to "hide" a virus by spoofing and masking another "legitimate" file. Greg
It is not required to run the mouse but is required to use setpoint software to enable differant profiles for differant games. Also without it you may not be able to use custom speed settings and may only be able to select the factory 3 speeds instead of the user determined 5 speeds Will
Its a Software from Logitech, its come from SetPoint, You have a new mouse? you have the g5? than its not a problem and not dangerous  See also: Link Liketisplitt
Installed with each separate installation of Logitech keyboad and mouse . . . two instances were running, one interferring with other. They were NOT removed when I uninstalled SetPoint (Logitech) - reverting to more basic trackball . . Albert
Essential component of all versions of Logitech SetPoint driver software, which controls customization of Logitech mouse buttons/functions. SetPoint (and, hence, mouse buttons/functions) may fail to function if this process is ended. Safe.  See also: Link Norbert

ITS NOT A VIRUS this is the setpoitn software that runs your logitech cordless mouse if you disable it then it will eat system resources because setpoint cant run without it and cripples the whole program ALAN

This is used in logitech mouse drivers, make sure on msconfig it is located in the Program Files\Logitech Folder though! Removing this if its the valid Logitech program will stop your mouse's "extra" buttons or "binded" functions from working!  See also: Link MinuteDesigns

This element prevents my appraisal software to recieve updates. Everett
khalmnpr.exe loads twice in my msconfig. It is not available for removal from Control Panel. A search of the desktop cannot find the executable file which should have been removed when I uninstalled Logitech a few months ago. I have disabled it at startup although I believe its presence in msconfig is simply a registry entry error. It may be essential for some users of Logitech hardware, but it is not for me. James Fuller

installed with logitech ex 100, allows keyboard hotkeys luke904
Runs My Logitech EX100 mouse & keyboard. If you wan't to use the special features on your keyboard and mouse, I suggest you leave it alone. You will loose your FN key and all the other FN functions if you uninstall it. Just go to Logitech.com and look under support. I have the Quickcam Pro 9000, it doesn't effect it in any way. Dennis
For Logitech Mouse; personally I think it's a bunch of crap. It's supposed to be for special functions. i.e., I have the V220 cordless, I can change the wheel to perform other functions (copy, paste, etc.) but it usually doesn't work, so I'm thinking of unchecking it in msconfig. Mish
This thing causes that my screen switches off directly after the windows turns on. Slovakia

I didn't notice that it was there until after I installed my G9 Laser Mouse. I'm running setpoint also. chokfulla
My computer was minimizing windows and opening browsers when I pressed the blank key. AFter having disabled this process it worked as normal again. lax
It is a memory hog and start-up baggage & for what? Recommend uninstalling carlcampbell
If it causes problems, click Start, Run, Type "msconfig", Click "OK", Click "Startup" tab, Uncheck the box next to it on the list, click "Apply", Click "OK", Restart Computer. Sir. Sanity
Mouse sporatically wacky. Might be Khalmnpr.exe causing this. DB
It should be enabled if you want to use the extra functions of the Logitech product Gary
I think this is file that is connected with Logitech wireless mouse macros
been using pc for a long period of time but khalmnpr.exe as appeared only ones thus its a spy ware. why one in ten pc with same specs, os etc. disable or remove it Zweink

This driver is used for logitech products, such as mice/keyboard ect.. i use this with my g700 mice for profile settings. very useful for gaming :), simple remove from add/remove programs C-BO
Seems connected with Setpoint but tends to conflict with Setpoint whatever it is because I loose my forward and back buttons all the time. :( I'd say get rid of it. Lee
It's part of my Logitech MX815 mouse drivers, called Logitech Unifying Software. It's a SetPoint tool for this style of gaming mouse. I've had no trouble with it at all, and I game at 1800dpi all the time. Mines in the red color from Target, and I've had it for 5 years now - great mouse. LNS-Front242-T3
This process is Logitech's mouse sensitivity monitor. When you enable Logitech's own sensitivity management, this process is required. This will allow you to change sensitivity on a per program level using their profile manager inside SetPoint.  See also: Link Naveen Kumar Singh
That driver causes sometimes an APPCRASH after waking up the computer from sleep. After that crash mouse looses the special buttons. Latest version, today is 2013-09-04 FrankFlorida
If this is part of setpoint, why did it only start utilising resources after 9 months of being installed, I have a Corsair mouse now, and this has started to use 10% of CPU and its an * core at 4100Mhz, thats a lot of resource for a horizontal scroll. I figure its a watcher, but It wont uninstall.... Bigweasle

Perhaps useful if you want battery info and caps lock icons on screen - but any software that shows network activity from a HID should be closely watched on updates and when not asked for. A pc user
All I have is a Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920. My keyboard and mouse are NOT made by Logitech. I did not notice this startup file after I installed my webcam months ago. Diana
