I just installed some Sony software for my Clie and thid process popped. up
I just want ot limit my comp and so much rubbish is being ran at anyone time its just silly. I have from 38 to 43 processes depending on what im doing, my processor is a 6000+ dual core athlon though so it shouldnt make to much of a difference
This file comes in the Gom media player package. I downloaded this player to beable to watch free tv shows and free movies on I would recomend that you check out that site if you like free TV. I was more or less forced into finding something to watch and occupy my time. I had to move frecently and it broke me to do so and I can not afford my usual Directv until I get my bills all caught up.

Best practices for resolving SPTISRV issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with SPTISRV. 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 SPTISRV.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. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware detects and removes sleeping spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers, malware and trackers from your hard drive.
