I don't doubt what you say. But here's the deal: Martin is right, regardless of how he phrased his answer (which is a bit harsh IMO).I have resource monitor open. I turn on hwinfo. Then on resource monitor hwinfo.exe pops up. I quit hwinfo. hwinfo.exe goes away from my resource monitor where it was uploading a bunch of data. You're saying this was just coincidence?
Ah, yes, that explains it. Inside the file "com.exension.hwinfo.streamDeckPlugin" (which is just a ZIP archive) there's a hwinfo.exe. Weird to use such name when "com.exension.hwinfo.exe" would've made it clearer IMO.
Well, you should find out where the data is sent because it's possible that hwinfo.exe only opens a localhost connection. You can use e.g. Sysinternals Process Explorer or NirSoft CurrPorts for this. This should be done before blaming anyone else. It's perhaps also a good idea to ask Streamdeck what this is all about, where the data is sent and which data it sent.
I'm sorry for my harsh answer, but sometimes I have to respond to tons of same questions over and over again. Sometimes users come with really crazy demands (even though they don't have to pay a penny for anything) or sometimes they don't listen to what I say and keep insisting on their point of view. I try to answer and help with everything I can, but this was a case which I don't feel responsible for, nor any reason to be blamed for.
Please read my post again. I said it's possible that it's just a localhost connection (within the same PC). That's why I suggested to take a closer look with one of the programs I mentioned - neither of them is complicated to use. Until this is done, it's uncertain whether or not it's an internal or external connection.So you're saying the process says it's sending high amounts of Bits, but not really sending through my network or using Bandwidth to my ISP? Just internal bandwidth?
