User Comments

This is the server file for synergy. This is an open source program that allows one keyboard and mouse for multiple computer systems connected to a network. This can be potentially risky for privacy since it sends unencrypted information about keyboard and mouse inputs. To secure this use SSH to encrypt the data across the network.

Used to share keyboard and mouse across tcp/ip network between 2 or more computers.
Like Scott and Justin Said, it's a required file for Synergy.
  Austin   (further information)
Used by Synergy to share a keyboard and mouse between 2 computers via a network link. Harmless if you installed the application, assuming you have made it secure.

Best practices for resolving synergys issues

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