    I'm confused - please help


    I noticed an entry in task manager start up showing as follows - TwDsUiLaunch.
    Having researched this a little, I find three conflicting assessments of this entry.

    1 - Nothing to get exited about
    2 - this is a malicious nasty
    3 - Its an entry via Brother printer software

    What is the current feeling about this entry?

    Do you have printer? And is the printer made by "Brother"? If so, that's what it's from.

    I have a different entry, ApMsgFwd, that appears to be with Dell or the Alps Touchpad on my Notebook, looks innocent enough. If a deep scan by your antivirus/antimalware finds nothing I wouldn't be concerned.

    This also tells you what directory it's in: TwDsUiLaunch.exe Windows process - What is it?

    Thanks everyone for your input - as I do indeed have two Brother printers in use, I have decided this is a legitimate entry. No quirks experienced to date.
    Thanks again
