It's a Palm-made driver that allows the connection between WOSQI (or the Palm SDK) and your device. I believe novacomd.exe is meant to run in the background so it can detect (and connect to) devices as they're plugged in. WOSQI will not start it up

Best practices for resolving novacomd issues

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