Drivers enable hardware components to communicate with software without additional programming from the software developer. This file is not a critical Windows file and can be removed if known to create problems. Tunebite completely removes DRM from media files. It converts M4P and protected WMA to unprotected MP3 files or any desired format. The Audials screen recorder performs as a background process and automatically records Flash video files (FLV) that are playing in a web browser. Audials AG is a Romanian company that was originally founded in 1998 as RapidSolution Software. RapidSolution first released Tunebite in 2004 and quickly turned it into an Internet classic for providing a much needed solution for relieving consumers from the frustrations of digital copy-protection. Today, Audial sells its products through partners in over 100 countries. The company is currently headquartered in Temeschburg, Romania.

Best practices for resolving tbhsd issues

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