Thanks for the enlightment. I turned the service to `Manual' for now. Funny
to see what the service manager says:
Display Name: Logitech Process Manager
Description: Webcam Effects Helper
Is that supposed to be the ``face overlay'' features, or? Haven't yet
scanned the Logitech support site/forum... I wonder :-\
Again, thanks for the enligthment.
