Information about dpmw32.exe file

File: dpmw32.exe
Name: Netware Distributed Printing Client
Product: Netware
Manufacturer: Novell
Risk factor (Virus/Trojan/Spyware): Rating

dpmw32.exe is a part of the Netware Distributed Printing Client
Novell: This program runs in the background if you are running the Novell Client to connect to a NetWare network and you have installed the Novell Distributed Print Services (NDPS) part of the client. We have found that in many non-NDPS NetWare networks this process will at times prevent other programs from working, e.g. GroupWise, PageMaker, it will at other times make the PC hang, or it will cause illegal operations.

Recommendation :
If you are not running Novell Distributed Print Services (most NetWare installations do not), disable this process.

RatingInnocuous. It does not do anything of any real value, unless you need it. If you are using the NDPS, you need it, and you should leave it alone. If not, it's small, so leave it alone anyway. Twitch
