belongs to my soundchip Realtek
Part of my sound card from Realtek
ASUS Realtek
it appears in c:\windows every time I have a problem, icons change etc
nothing i need to kno what this program is in more detail
belongs to an installation of the driver for Realtek-onBoard-Sound, but it seems to be completely useless, no need to run another risky process
It has a spider-like logo in c:\windows. Looks dangerous. Similar to ALCMTR and ALCWZRD
I have this file and a RealTech soundcard. It seems there's a connection...

It is part of the Realtek Sound Manager program for Realtek integrated sound devices. It is neither dangerous nor useless. Realtek Sound Manager may also come with AvRack, a media player shipped with the installation of the managing software. As for that spider logo, it belongs to Realtek as well. :) Happy listening!
