HP media device extra diagnostics and tweaking tool... not vital for use of the devices. Can be safely terminated if everything already works to your needs.
It does nothing and can consume 95% of the processor time!

STATUSCLIENT caused an invalid page fault in
Anytime my computer slows down, Statusclient seems to be behind it, sucking up from 49 percent of the CPU on up
Freezes computer especially when combined with MS Word

statusclient.exe is from HP, but turned into a colossal memory leak. It runs every 20 seconds or so, and doesn't release the memory it uses. I was losing 40 meg of ram an hour until I isolated the problem. I didn't suspect anything from HP. I've had the HP laserjet for more than a year, without any problems, so maybe statusclient got corrupted or hijacked.

StatusClient.exe has been hanging my system, so 3 days ago, I started manually shutting it down when I reboot the system, and everything has been running quite normally.
It sucks up resources unneccessarily
Sometimes consumes 99 percent of Process time, making the system run very slow.

It sucks processor after some time! I recommend to turn it off!

I've had HP printer for a yr with no problems now computer has slowed down and statusclient.exe is using 99% of the CPU. I end the process and printer works fine without it. not sure if this has been hijacked by something but have recently been getting spammed with skype popups also
like a virus, hurt my life. it uses 95% of my cpu

It completely freezes my PC. Uses 99% of capacity
Belongs to the HP software toolbox installation, not essential - Can use upto 90% CPU randomly for no good reason

Best practices for resolving StatusClient issues

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