TWCU.exe

The window I'm working in becomes innactive.  When I open task manager, processess, it looks like TWCU.exe is causing this to happen.  What is it and can I safely remove it

Re: TWCU.exe

If you have a TP-Link wireless adapter, this may help.

The recommendation is to use Windows to manage the connection, and not the TP-Link utility.

I had similar issues, and now simply use the driver files, and not their wireless utility.

 

If you uninstall all of the software and drivers, then when Windows detects the adapter and asks for the drivers, simply insert the CD ans let it find the drivers, but do not install anything else from the CD.

 

If you get problems, then let me know.

Re: TWCU.exe

Thanks for the reply.

I'd forgot to mention that this problem only started when I got wireless internet with a link adapter.

When I get home I'll try what you said and let you know the outcome.

Many thanks

That would seem the problem. The page link I gave you does explain how you can disable the utility program without uninstalling anything.
