|The original SetPoint.exe (along with KHALMNPR.exe) is the program file for the Logitech Keyboard and Mouse application, which enables you to set the dpi rate for your mouse or to remap your mouse buttons. Normally if you exit the application on the system tray, these 2 exe will disappear from the Task Manager as well. Although if it's in the System32 folder, it's dangerous and should be checked immediately. IC_Draconis|

|Yes, it's Logitech's file, in C:\Progr... folder. But: why do it want to listen to the Net? I stopped this behavior through the (Comodo) Firewall. In my opinion, mouse driver must drive a mouse, not send data about me to Logitech (and who else yet...?). Lajos|

|If it's the correct Logitech driver, it's not only not dangerous, but it is usually necessary. I'm more interested in knowing whether it needs to be in the Startup queue. Don't really need mouse or keyboard until after boot is complete. Any thoughts? Jim|
