Die Datei "WisLMSvc.exe" ist weder gefährlich - noch gehört sie zu windows. Sie ist teil des "launch manager" welcher für die Funktionen der "fn-Tastenkombinationen" zuständig ist. Auf meinem Notebook hatte ich bisher noch keine probleme dem "Launch Manager" und der dazu gehörigen "WisLMSvc.exe". Das Windows 7 Protokoll für Anwendungen behauptet zwar das die Installation beschädigt sei, dem ist aber nicht so! Habe alle Funktionen der "fn-Kombinationen" auf Fehler überprüft, läuft alles tadellos ( auf Vista und Win7 , auf xp hab ichs noch nicht getestet )
