Task found on Tablet PCs running Windows Vista. You either have the Handwriting Recognizer (also called Handwriting Recognition Personalization Tool or Input Personalization) currently open and you are training your Tablet PC to recognize your handwriting, or you are currently entering free-hand text on your Tablet PC and the Handwriting Recognizer is running in the background automatically converting your handwriting to machine understandable text.

It is a file, mthat is used by windows for HP touch screen desktop computers, which enables you to use the screen to type in stead of the keyboard!

guyz inputpersonalization.exe is what its name itself suggest. It starts when you run any program that simulates input other than the mouse or keyboard. so opening the virtual keyboard, using a digi pen, or handwriting recognizer. it just helps the computer to take input from you using the apllication. its safe you can stop the process once you finish using the app. however for those using touch screens, it is absolutely essential because your touch interface depends completely on this file. take care guyz.
