Not a critical component, but see the information above before disabling it. It is highly recommended to Run a Free Performance Scan to automatically optimize memory, CPU and Internet Settings..
Fuji MyFinePix Studio camera device detection
Don't know how it got on my system but it was hogging 25% of the CPU time. My version 13,888 kB and )% CPU time when the system is rebooted. The link below suggest running their own diagnostic but I'm wary of 3 party diagnostics. It's called a Dialer Detect, so I don't know if it hacks into the broadband sytem.

dd.exe kommt wahrscheinlich vom Photoprogramm der Fa. Lidl. Ich hatte es seit dem letzten runterladen und habe es glücklich gelöscht

I did Uninstall the Fuji software but this file didn't uninstall and says I cannot delete it becuase I don't have permissions. I am the administrator and permissions show I should be able to delete!
