what is acdaemon?

This came up on my startup items and couldn't find anything on google that explains it, only sites that say they run a free scan to remove it. I removed it from my start up but don't know if that is the correct thing to do.

acdaemon is associated with digital imaging and video software, for cameras, printers, scanners, mobile phones etc. it's usually located in the c:/program files/common files directory. if you find it under the windows, windows/system, or the windows/system32 directory it may be malware. run a virus/malware scan.

hello again. Went to CastleSops. Shows there that "acdaemon" is ArcSoft Connect Daemon used for downloading updates.

Since my post, I also found that is related to this Arcsoft. I updated my Kodak Easyshare software and wonder if thats when it got downloaded. I also removed all its components last night. Will see what happens. PC is definitely running faster since I stopped it at start up though. Thanks all
