Dangers of eabservr
As this is a relatively common process that exists on most HP and Compaq laptops, it is possible for virus writers and spyware vendors to disguise their malware as the genuine one.

Some malicious files may have the same name but be stored somewhere other than in %ProgramFiles%\HPQ\Quick Launch Buttons. Other malware may use a name that appears similar to it but with slight differences in spelling or with appended digits. While there are currently no known viruses, Trojans, or adware applications that disguise themselves as this process, you should look out for the presence of this file in an incorrect location or with a slightly different name.

There is typically only one instance of this process running at a given time on a system. The presence of multiple instances may be an indicator of a malware infection. Furthermore, if you see this process and you do not have an HP or Compaq laptop, it is likely that your system is infected with malware.

Common problems
  • This process crashes when shutting down the system
    • This is known to occur in some cases. Try installing the latest version of the Easy Access button software. If this does not resolve the problem and you do not use the multimedia buttons on your laptop, you can disable this process as described above.
