This is one of the Presto! Mr. Photo 3 files. This software came with the DXG digital camera, and seems to run peacefully, waiting for the camera to be plugged in so it can hold your hand. ;) From the introduction: Presto! Mr. Photo 3 was especially designed to communicate with digital camera utilities or digital camera software via TWAIN, so that images can be downloaded from a digital camera automatically. Appears to be harmless.
Installed with Presto! software with installation of PlusTek OpticFilm slide & film scanner. Provided with other scanners & cameras.

Best practices for resolving IPP4Detect issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with IPP4Detect. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic 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 6resmon 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 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command.
