Hey There, I am Sofia Carter. HP Connection Optimizer is a piece of software created by HP. The most popular version is 126.96.36.199, which is presently used by almost 98 percent of all installs. When the program is installed, it creates a Windows Service that runs continually in the background. Manually terminating the service has resulted in the software failing to function correctly. It installs a background controller service that is configured to execute on-demand.
