I have a 2TB MyBook Live on my home network. I have recently been examining the Windows 7 PC which I initially used to set up the MyBook, because it is making continuous use of the hard disk (common enough issue), and I have noticed that there is something called “WDDMService” that starts automatically and that periodically reads a bunch of registry keys and loads up upnp.dll.
What is WDDMService? Would it have gotten installed when I set up the MBL? What does it do? Is it looking for locally-attached drives (which it will never find any of)? As I access my MBL over the network (by IP), and configure it from the web browser, do I need to have WDDMService running at all, or can I safely disable it? In fact, can I uninstall it? And how would I do that?
