It shows this message when you start Opera: "A third party application that is not compatible with the DEP (Data Execution Prevention) security feature has tried to attach to Opera. This application poses a security risk, so it is strongly recommended that you update it, or remove the application if no fix is available. The incompatible module was: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\INK\SKCHUI.DLL". M-Jeeli
It's MS office handwriting input - you can uninstall it from office setup , go to shared featues / alternative user input / hand writing and uninstall it. Opera web browser will throw up a security error until you get rid of this file and its only needed if you're using handwriting input. Apparently it gets exploited by some viruses. Dan Savage
This program is for handwriting on your computer. It might be a feature of Microsoft Office. theodoros_1234
