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!

Best practices for resolving dd issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with dd. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off doing a repair of your installation, or in the case of Windows 8, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the dd.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware detects and removes sleeping spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers, malware and trackers from your hard drive.
