    Is PIconstartup.exe necessary in Win8? It is running on my machine and I have looked it up online and the general consensus is to leave it alone if there are no problems but with no differentiation for Win8. These answers are usually accompanied by advertisements for "speed up products", "reg. cleaners" (dangerous, I think). I did the $15 upgrade from Win7 to Win 8 and it may have been left over from 7. Task Manager labels it as "high impact" on startup. Any ideas??
