KodakCCS.exe is an Application for your Kodak EasyShare Software. It's causing my system to crash, but it's not supposed to, I have windows ME so maybe thats' why. But w/o this application, you can't upload your pictures from your digital camera. I think I'll need to call Kodak and see if they can walk me through this and find a way for this to work without is causing my system to error.
Essential if you have Kodak Easyshare software installed otherwise kill it.
came with my kodak easyshare software included with my digital camera. Totoal waste of resources if you have the slightest idea how to use your camera, not needed with XP
stange...i can't end the process for some reason. after i his 'end process' it just sits there like i did nothing at all
disabling it will disable your camera's transfer function until you activate the program again
This file is really for the Kodak Easyshare camera, but there is no need of it in Windows XP. Everyone can transfer files from the camera just using the USB connection. No need of it at all (if you want, you can uninstall software, just not forget to remove all your files from the Kodak folder).
Necessary for downloading from Kodak cameras but causes Win98 to hang at shut down. The only solution I've found is to remove it from the startup menu and only run it when needed. Make sure to kill it before powering down.
I also can't kill the process and when I try to change the priority, it tells me access denied. I don't need it running all the time! Grr.
I'm having a hard time preventing this file from loading on startup. I've looked in all the usual startup places in the registry. It's listed in a couple of other keys, but I'm afraid to mess with it.
This is part of Kodak EasyShare software. It is not essential and may be best to disable it as Kodake Easyshare software is a HUGE resource hog and can slow your PC diown or even cause it to hang
Go to folder: Kodak Kodak Software Updater Kodak Software Updater Setup and select not to auto start it.

Best practices for resolving KodakCCS issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with KodakCCS. 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 KodakCCS.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.
