Wollte auf Skype zugreifen
SKYPE wollte zugreifen
BtvStack.exe ist der Treiber für Bluetooth-Peripheriegeräte. Falls blockiert für Skype sind keine Bluetooth-Headsets mehr zu nutzen.
I have a Sony VAIO laptop. When pressing the Caps Lock key, a popup comes up notifying you that Caps Lock has been activated. That is caused by this process, and it's very annoying. Simply rename or delete this file from C:\Program Files (x86)\Bluetooth Suite and restart the computer. You'll no longer get the annoying popup when hitting Caps Lock.
ich habe es nicht bewusst auf meinem laptop installiert, - es muss von anfang an mit win8.1 vorinstalliert gewesen sein. nun will es auf skype zugreifen. da es für windows nicht notwendig sein soll, werde ich versuchen, es zu deinstallieren.
not much; skype asks to add it
Ungefährlich! Diese Datei möchte auf Skype zugreifen damit diese miteinander über Bluetooth kommunizieren kann (für Drahtlosheadsets beispielsweise).
Wollte auch bei mir auf Skype zugreifen

Best practices for resolving BtvStack issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with BtvStack. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic 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 6resmon 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 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
