Encouraged use for Logitech's cordless mouse/keyboard range
It is the process for Logitech's mouse and keyboard settings - if you dont use the extra function keys on either device you won't need it

Logitech keyboard hook driver exe, part of setpoint suite
It has visible windows that call from the tray. The prog is used for many Logitech kb/mouses, not only cordless for defining nonstadart buttons.

It is software for Logitech wireless mouse and might be used with some of their other products. Norton, SuperAntispyware and malwarebytes considered it to be safe.

Best practices for resolving SetPoint32 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with SetPoint32. 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 SetPoint32.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.
