ZoneAlarm meldete heute Zugriffsversuch der TMMonitor.exe. Habe Zulassung verweigert.

Dies ist der Schnellstarter von TotalMedia. Läuft im Hintergrund, damit das Hauptprogramm schneller gestertet werden kann.
Belongs to Total Media Centre from Arcsoft. This software came with my DVT USB Stick (for watching television on my desktop). It's similar to Microsoft's Media Center. It's not dangerous nor essential and can be deactivated or uninstalled without risk.

Nach der Deinstallation einer Anwendung von ArcSoft bleiben in der Registry einige Eintragungen, die nicht im regedit entfernt werden können. Da verbirgt sich tmmonitor dahinter. Absolut ungefährlich, aber etwas lästig, da nutzlos.
