|Not malicious, but can cause unrecoverable crashes. I think it is wrong for a hardware driver to monitor user processes, however benign the intent. There are better ways. Simon Hill|

|Part of Logitech software. Causes problems on Portable when camera not present - PC fails to shutdown correctly. LVPrcSrv gets locked in a loop consuming large resources while stalling the shutdown. Set service to Manual start as temp workaround. Derek Archibald|
|It tries to access other application memory (warning from oupost firewall). I've been looking whether this means trouble. Can't find anything yet. john|
|To prevent this from running at startup on XP Pro, I went into Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Services, found the entry for Process Monitor (with the ominous sounding description of Injector service) and set it to Disabled. The other associated Logitech services I had were named LVCOMSer and LVSrvLauncher, which I've also disabled as I no longer use the Webcam. Csaba|

|All I know is that after I installed my web cam and the software I downloaded for it, I started having problems. It seemed to interfere with an application that reads ane writes a lot of files. After a while the lvprcsrv.exe task was using all the cpu. I couldn't even get the cursor to move. So after a reboot, and reading about lvprcsrv.exe, I renamed the file and haven't seen the problem since. And my web cam still works. leptonjim|
