What is D-Link Connection Manager?  (from D-Link)

Wireless Connection Manager will add and save settings for the networks you frequent most.


D-Link Connection Manager is a software program developed by D-Link. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The setup package generally installs about 40 files and is usually about 199.94 MB (209,657,036 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 72% of users of D-Link Connection Manager come from India, it is also popular in Iran and the United States.
