User Comments

ATKKBService looks like AsusTekKeyBoardService. Came with my Nvidia GeForce 6200 card. RKill closed it, so unclear.
This nasty file installed itself on my computer when an ASUS XONAR HDAV 1.3 Deluxe sound card. The soundcard nearly killed my $8-10,000 stereo system (comes on momentarily, maybe 1/2 - 3/4 sec at full volume at over 3.5 volts peak-peak when you turn mute off) so I swiftly removed it from my media centre. Uninstalled it's software but it left this nasty file behind. Complete system hog sometimes causing 3-10sec delay for mouse and keyboard inputs and that is when it did not cause BSoD's. Manually uninstalled it and computer returned to normal. (WinXP 32 bit)
