Autoupdate for palm application documents to go
I see a fair number of machines which are rendered unusable by using all available resources ...
Although not dangerous it can take a large amount of CPU usage just to run in the background when not connected to the net

As stated by Elly Jeurissen, this is an optional communication program for "Documents to Go".. you can stop it from the DTG preferences ..

Best practices for resolving DvzIncMsgr issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with DvzIncMsgr. 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 repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, 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 DvzIncMsgr.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.
