Last Modified: 2009-07-29
I am seeing HPPUDH.exe and HPPU.exe in the proccesses running on my Small Biz server. I am wondering exactly what that is for? One of the instances was consistantly taking up 25% of my CPU. I ended it, to see what would happen, but would like to know what exactly it is.

I did see that article too. I am just looking to see if anyone knows for sure what it is and what it is used for.

I believe it is used for the HP Printer Utility.  Do you have any HP Printers installed? Also you might want to search Program Files for it, You might be able to see who it belongs to.
