Win 7 query (wpocia.Exe)

Win 7 query "WPOCIA.EXE"
Have laptop running win7; must say at moment prefer my
laptop running Vista  Cry
Do other Win7 Users see wpocia.exe in processes, as it regularly hogs over 70%]of CPU
resources, but googling does not show anything by this name?.

If you right click on the process and select - view file location where is it
I don't have that process running on W7 64 bit

Google does find it, but not much help, something to do with medicine

Re: Win 7 query (wpocia.Exe)

Don't have that file anywhere on my Win7 x64 PC so I would say its not part of windows. Could be something from your PC manufacturer, part of some software you have installed, or a virus/anti-virus that generates random file names.
as Oldjim said, find out where the file is stored and report back. What happens if you right click and end it?

Are you sure as DirectDraw isn't a separate utility it is part of the operating system - try running dxdiag
When you right clicked on it where did it say the file is located
Which graphics driver are you using

Ran dxdiag and all seemed normal.
At what point do I right click?Huh
Closing down process frees up the cpu, and seems to have no
adverse effect.

Like this - just put the mouse cursor over the name, right click and this is what you get
Properties might give a bit more information as well
