This software eats my RAM and seems to be letting Trojans in? I am unsure. Regardless, it causes my disk to be overstressed and has crashed my computer dozens of times. Glad I finally found and deleted it. Seems to have fixed everything.
TiltWheelMouse drengt sich immer in den Vordergrund und ist deshalb sehr nervend. Mir hat es geholfen, es in den Autostart zu deaktivieren. Seitdem ist diese Problem nicht mehr aufgetreten.

Das Explorerfenster: C:\Windows\SysWOW64 startet automatisch Ursache ist "TiltWheelMouse.exe"=Autostart: "pximouse" 1. Test: Autostart "pximouse" mit G-DATA deaktiviert das verhindert den Start des obigen des Fensters und das Problem war behoben. 2. Deshalb anschließend "TiltWheelMouse.exe" umbenannt in "TiltWheelMouse(umbenannt).umbenannt" = seit dem keine Probleme mehr. Pfad= C:\Windows\System32\TiltWheelMouse.exe
Bei mir ist diese Datei erst seit meiner Sharkoon Shark Force Maus vorhanden. Daher glaube ich, das diese Datei der Treiber für die Seitenknöpfe.
Dies ist ein Treiber für die Sharkoon Sharkforce. Ohne TiltWheelMouse funktionieren die beiden Tasten an der Seite der Maus nicht.
