Teamviewer allows people people to connect to other computers,such as a meeting or something. It could be dangerous if anyone gives you their password to the program
   
As far as I know the process insn't needed in any way. I'm pretty sure it just helps TeamViewer to start some Seconds faster. The TeamViewer developers once told me that this is a very important process which needs to run all the time, but they didnt wanted to tell me why exactly... My suggestion: Kill the service (the process isn't killable under normal circumstances, which is kind of suspicious if you ask me). I don't rate this process as dangerous, but it has huge potential to be dangerous, it is even able to communicate using the internet (to check for updates? We don't know).

Just set the service to manual in the windows service control. I dont like software running in the background for no good reason, especially without being told about it by the installer!
   
TeamViewer4_Service.exe start's always, occupy ~10Mb from RAM and wait. It's protected (like viruses and worms protect themselves) - once killed, tkis process start himself again, immediatey. When TeamViewer8 programm is launched, TeamViewer4_Service.exe process incerease their size to 11~12Mb from RAM, its strange: TeamViewer himself take only 3 Mb from RAM , so WHY TeamViewer4_Service.exe take 4 times more space in operative memory?! Possible, it's backdoor from dewelopers, but we can't get access to this part of software. So, there is potentional problem. Safe - while waits.

Best practices for resolving TeamViewer_Service issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with TeamViewer_Service. 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 doing a repair of your installation, or in the case of Windows 8, 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 TeamViewer_Service.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.
