Definition of Hcdetect

Hcdetect Definition from Computer & Internet Dictionaries & Glossaries
Microsoft Windows Task List Programs Glossary by SRP
Background process of the Microsoft Home Click networking software. Microsoft Home Click is a simple home network setup and configuration program which comes included with 3Com’s HomeConnect networking products. It is used primarily in North America and is seen very little elsewhere. HCDETECT.EXE runs in the background for network printer notification, detection, and the Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) taskbar icon. There is a bug in HCDETECT.EXE where it does not automatically detect shared USB printers (see Microsoft Knowledgebase article Q272133).
Recommendation :
There are problems with HCDETECT.EXE, resulting at times in the need to reboot the network in order to regain lost memory. That said, HCDETECT.EXE is a necessary component of the HomeClick software – you should therefore leave this process alone.
