How do I keep UIU64m.exe from using increasing amounts of RAM?

I recently upgraded to Window 7 Professional 64 Bit on my HP Compaq 7810p Notebook.  A certain application, Conexant Universal Device Install/Unistall, is constantly active under my processes in task manager and constantly utilising my availible RAM.  Once I restart the PC the process starts using about 7000k, it rapidly starts using the availible memory until it comes to about 150 000k and the computer grinds to a halt.

When I search for conexant under the c: drive I get the application but there is no readme file or any other information detaling the use of the software / drivers.  The specific file name mentioned in the task manager is UIU64m.exe.

I can end the process without noticing any change in hardware working or adverse effects.  If I can remove the files/application and anyone could give me advice on how to do this it would be very much appreciated.

The Microsoft Autoruns tool should be able to expose where the process is starting from.

Hi,

I could switch the program off so that it does not start-up with windows and all still seems fine. But I cannot remove it as add remove programs don't allow me to remove it. Could this be a virus or melware?

It is possible, but not likely.  I saw no virus issues when Googling the filename.  It is more likely a problem with Conexant's support software for the 8710P's built-in modem.
