CDASrv.exe gehört zur Printersoftware "Easy Printer Manager" von Samsung und wird bei der Installation von Samsungdruckern (auch Name Xerox) automatisch installiert. Es legt eine Vielzahl von Dateien an. !!!!! Es Verzögert den Windows-Start und das Herunterfahren.

Wurde bei mir zusammen mit dem Treiber meines neuen Druckers "Samsung CLP-365" installiert: C:\Programme (+ Programme (x86))\Common Files\Common Desktop Agent
Installed as part of Samsung Easy Print Manager
I also have a Samsung printer for more than a year. A weeks ago, together with the update to Windows 8.1 my keyboard input was slow. After a long search it appeared that CDA server was causing this. I disabled it in the Windows startup settings. I can not remove it through the control panel, because it is not mentioned there. I could remove the files of course, but for now all works fine.
