File purpose and description:

COCIManager.exe is a file which may have been on your computer since the day your bought it, as sometimes these files can be preinstalled software on certain computers. This may also have been installed by you at a later date on your computer. The correct file and folder location is also listed below, and should always be verified as spyware and virus writers will often use the same named file or like named files and just locate them elsewhere in attempts to fool you. This COCIManager.exe software file is part of Logitech, and it is part of their Logitech webcam control interface software. If you have a webcam from Logitech then you may see this listed in your running processes. If you are running 64bit systems then it may appear also as "COCIManager.exe *32" in your tasklist. You can terminate this in your tasklist if you are not using a webcam. This file is considered safe and is not considered spyware, virus, or adware related.

General information:
Be aware that many tasks will be similiar names to existing tasks or processes. You can always view the running tasks on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view the windows "task manager", and then view the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running or currently active on your PC. Although this shows you all running tasks, it does not show dll file thats are loaded, as they get loaded as part of other processes. Many spyware writers attempt to hide their files on your computer, for example, cocimanager.exe may be intentionally misspelled to look like a similiar task, or spyware may be named very similiar to a Windows system task. The reason they do this is so you cannot easily recognize the name in your tasklist as I have mentioned above. Make sure always check the location of the file if you are concerned. You can always find the location of cocimanager.exe on your computer by using your Windows search options, but I will also try to list the file location of every file described on this website, so you can verify the correct location.
