WZCSLDR3.exe is part of the drivers for various wireless networking cards made by Alpha Networks. This is an OEM manufacturer of wireless logic (as opposed to a company that makes end products), so your system may be using their products even if there's nothing in it with that label. Should be considered part of your drivers and left alone, or your wireless connection won't work.www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/wzcsldr2.exe.html 

If you want a detailed security rating about your WZCSLDR2.exe (and all other running background processes) read the following user opinions, and download the free trial version of Security Task Manager.

Note: Any malware can be named anything - so you should check where the files of the running processes are located on your disk. If a "non-Microsoft" .exe file is located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, then there is a high risk for a virus, spyware, trojan or worm infection! Check it out!

I have 2 different wireless cards. A D-Link and an Airlink101. ANIO and AINOWCZ or similar are 2 programs which come with the wireless cards. They are parts of the wireless network protocols. Not mailicous or dangerous but buggy. dinub1

Its part of the Alpha Networks wlan driver installation for my pci wlan adapter from ALLNET - this causes error messages on every bootup even on my fresh XP installation. , reinstallation doesnt help, not sure if need anyway... maybe deleting is an option. There is no other version available according to ALLNET support and there is no update nor a bugfix in plan for the future.... If anyone knows a solution or found a link for a diffrent fileversion other than the buggy if your wlan adapter wont work it helps in my case to de- and reactivate my ALLNET adapter after every bootup manually under Start/networks.. if your wlan adapter wont work it helps in my case to de- and reactivate my ALLNET adapter after every bootup manually under Start/networks.. amikid

Comes with D-Link wireless NIC software. Buggy shit, often crashes during boot. Sucks CPU if you have a low-powered PC. I believe it's originally intended for Win16. However, the alternative, Microsoft Wireless Zero Configurator is even worse.  See also: Link Martin

I used to have same problem as amikid. Because I deleted csrss.exe from C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache b/c I though it was harmful, when I put csrss.exe back in folder, WLAN would connect with no problems at startup. Grimraper
It eats up HUGE amounts of Non-Page Memory Pool and will eventually cause the PC to crash when the pool is exausted. I stopped it from starting when the PC boots. Greg Kreis
Pointless disable it or remove with msconfig, you can still use the USB wireless to accses the web, pointless resource wasting process if you ask me Butthead

Buggy DLINK WLAN Software. Software hangs my machine on each reboot after a few minutes. Software is in 2 parts, 1 Part as a Service and 1 Part in Run Programs in Registry. Disabled the Driver under Services and the system became stable, Disabled the software from starting in the Run section of the registry, and system stayed stable. Wireless Card is still active and works fine from my experience.! Rino - Network Manager

In MSCONFIG you can un-select this program from loading at start-up. Doesn't affect my wireless connection to my router. Art Dutton
I also used to get this process using 100% of my CPU. I found 2 solutions: a) use the windows network configuration tool and not the Dlink one and disable the D-link tool startup (msconfig - uncheck the entryC:\Program Files\D-Link\Wireless G WUA-1340\AirGCFG.exe). I didn't test it for more than 20 hours but i didn't get the error. - b) or disable the windows service WZC (Wireless Zero Configuration)goto Start -- Run -- type services.msc and press OK -- Scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration (it'll be at the bottom), right-click and select Properties -- Click Stop. In this case arnaud

Somehow, this made my box crash every time I enabled my dlink dwl-g510. Don't ask me why. Different drivers are working now. FinalDoom
This error seems to be congruent with another one(in my case at least): aircfg.exe entry point not found error, i'm not sure if they're related but there is a solution for that error on this site, maybe it will help. Meatball
came with my Dlink WiFi usb adaptor and causes no real problems Ringo
This file isn't needed in Windows XP, seems to cause problems in Vista. Best disable it and use the built in Windows stuff. Jordan
I can definitly agree, it is installed with D-Link Products. I Installed D=Link DWL-G510 card, since there, thiss app and AirGCFG.exe are new processes. Alex.
using msconfig, and remove the ANIWZCS2 launcher, works.... phil
If you have a D-link WUA 2340, you need this file running. If you are experiencing loss of signal, it is because you have two copies running. This happens with XP when you are logged in as administrator and have not logged out as a user - like when you use the switch user function. You need to use taskmanager to end one of the processes. If you are logged in as administrator, you can see both processes, If logged in as a (restricted) user, you can only see the copy that the user started. Just end that copy. Luckydog
Installs with D-Link WLAN drivers. NOT Dangerous, but DOES self-install when the CD plugs and plays, meaning you have no choice about where its files end up Spudddd
Not a security threat, however can have adverse effect on the machine. It is a driver component for D-Link wireless products, required to start a connection, but safe to kill after connection is made. It will often chew up 100% CPU if left to idle in XP. Software Security Technician

It comes with the D-Link USB-Stick and sometimes it sucks up to 50% of my dual core CPU with Windows XP pro. It's easy to delete from the task manager but then the WLAN failes after a while. I start it again and it works for a while well. Suddenly it sucks the power again. Very annoying shit program. Rudi

Is used by wireless networks, wireless NICs, or wireless routers. This is NOT exclusive to D-Link & seems it may not be needed or necessary for internet connections. I Never had a D-Link routr. I have an Airlink101 wireless router & still receive that error on occasion. I am still able to connect to the interenet even after that service failed to start. Dimples
I have disabled this file by renaming it (*.000) and after restart my conceptronic wireless card works no problem. ANIWZCSDS.exe still starts up freom the same folder but causes no problem Ad Rem
If you re running windows XP with service pack 3 then make sure you are running the most updated driver for your d-link NIC, otherwise you may get an error on windows startup about WZCSLDR2.exe Robbo
Disabled this via MSCONFIG together with AirGCFG.exe which needed cancellation every time after SP3 update. No problems yet. GinaJ
I can confirm that it is not needed by D-link wireless once there is a connection Peter

WZCSLDR2.exe is part of the "D-Link Wireless Connection Manager" . My WDA-2320 wifi card works fine without it although the Connection Manager loses some functionality. I have noticed this process has problems especially when it is running and you are playing a video game as it begins with about 110 "handles" and after playing the game and returning to Windows XP Pro I have seen it build to well over 1000 handles and keeps growing as I watch it. I usually delete it in Task Manager, Latest drivers from D-Link don't solve the problem. Deighv
Mine creates a wierd tray icon I can't close or see name. Goes away when I close this program. D-link no help yet. Disabled in MSCONFIG-STARTUP. Everything still working fine. Program hasn't reappeared in task manager...so far! Latest D-link drivers no help. Larry
It is used for dual frequency WLAN adapters (D-Link 3000, etc.). Also, if you open the config file for your adapter you will see that it is a config file for 20+ brand name WLAN adapters. You can edit the config file with Notepad, Notepad2, or Notepad++ to eliminate it from being installed. Gaerbyl-30 yrs MS/Windows Tech
