What you should know about D4.exe Dimension

D4.exe is not part of Windows, but it is important nonetheless. D4.exe is found in a subdirectory of "C:\Program Files". Frequently occurring are file sizes such as 355,840 bytes (80% of all these files) or, as the case may be, 200,704 bytes.
The file was developed by a so-called third party provider - and not by Microsoft. The program executes in the background, and can only be terminated using Windows Task Manager. When Windows starts, this process is automatically started at the same time (Registry: MACHINE\Run). This D4 program is connected to a server on the Internet or in your local network. You can use Windows Control Panel (Programs icon) to completely remove the software. D4.exe is capable of supervise programs. For this reason, 50% of all experts consider this file to be a possible threat. The probability that it can cause harm is high.

If you see this file on your hard drive or in Windows Task Manager, please make sure that it is not a malicious variant. It's a fact that many trojans try to cloak their true identity by calling themselves D4.exe. With the above information or by using tools like Security Task Manager you can determine if, in your case, the file is an undesirable variant.

How to tell if D4.exe (Dimension) was uninstalled cleanly

After uninstalling, restart your computer. Then start Windows Explorer and see if there is still a folder with the name of the software under C:\Program Files. Be sure to check the Registry as well for remnants of Dimension. To do this, start "Regedit", then look under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" > "Software" for Dimension or the name of the producer. Always keep in mind that only a computer professional should ever directly delete entries in the Windows Registry.

What to do if a program does not uninstall

The easiest way to remove any kind of software cleanly and accurately is to use an uninstaller tool. Because the uninstaller automatically creates a backup, there is no risk of anything going wrong.

Last but not least

If Windows not working quite right for you, or if startup is taking a long time, or D4.exe is causing problems for you, a good Windows diagnostic tool may very well help. This is especially effective when it comes to older computers that have accumulated vast quantities of "garbage data" as the result of many software installs and uninstalls.
