RatingAti tray/ Ati Control panel. This is used to access advanced options for those using Ati 3d graphics cards. This process presents no security risk, and is actually required by many 3d applications when a Radeon based ATI card is in use. I will leave a link to the developers.  link for more info Magus
Ratingdo not remove it if you still want clear graphics andy
RatingControl Panel for ATI Graphics Cards... The only reason I can see leaving it alone is if you want to use hotkeys to switch between displays. Until this is in memory, hot keys won't work. Bryon
RatingThis loads and reloads in my system startup, and now that I have a GEforce video card, can slow games to a 1 frame per second CRAWL. Virus? No. Spyware? Not sure. Annoying MS @#$%? Absolutely. I vote for a way to remove it. I removed all the drivers from ATI and this won't go away. Susan
RatingIt's perfectly safe. But if you want to remove it you should first remove all of it's entries you can find in the windows registry (regedit.exe). Then find the file in your hard drive and delete it. If you don't want to mess up with the windows registry you can remove it using msconfig.exe Silvio
RatingDo not remove if you need clear graphics ! Vj
Ratingremove it to free up your resources Curio
RatingRemoving the ATI drivers alone may not remove it. In my case it is located as a seperate program in a C;\Program Files\ATI Technology. Try using Add\remover programs, or closing it via Taskmanager and deleting the directory, Then User Hover Inc's RegSeeker to clean/remove all reference to ATI in the registry  link for more info @Damski

RatingDie Datei gehört zum ATI-Grafikkartentreiber (in meinem Fall der Rage 128 GL). Ungefährlich, aber auch ziemlich überflüssig und manchmal absturzgefährdet.  link for more info
RatingI dont know if its spy, worm virus or etc but it remains spreading and there s no fix from microsoft as of 09.02.2005.Even registry cleaning does not work. Umut
RatingFound it appearing on Spybot scans after accessing the Internet while in Europe. Raised concerns that it could be a misnamed virus or spyware loaded into the registry to prevent auto deletion by Spybot and AdAware. Curiously, my desktop functions fine without two of these files using the same video card. The files which produced the problems with anitspyware were in the deepest nest and labeled Names and Id, i.e. HKEY_USERS\ S-1-5-...\Software\Microsoft\DirectInput\MostRecentApplications. Deleted these with no effect on systems. ca
