I found this file in C:\Program Files\WUSB11 WLAN Monitor. I believe this folder is related to my LinkSys USB adapter. Gemtek appears to be a legitimate business, related to wireless products. Dale

Makes most Linksys USB devices function properly. Normally uses less than 2MB of RAM in the processes, however, this process may be killed without losing a connection. You may want to do some research based on your device if you want the processes killed. Make a restore point (or a method of backup) before you do anything as a precaution. Nebcat

This is tied to various network adapters - including Belkin and Linksys. It's only installed when you run the EXE for the 'driver' installation and it is NOT needed if you use Windows Wireless Zero Config to manage your wireless device. Uninstall the wirelss manager (Linksys in my case) from the add/remove programs in control panel, and then install the driver from the 'directory' created (c:\Linksys Driver - in my case) and the device will work correctly MusicMeister - AKA Ed Spencer
