Hi, i would be soo glad for some help for dummies! i have been reading all the threads on communications_helper as i have all the same problems, but not knowing anythign about computers, i want to know if:
1. Ending the process via the Task Manager will disable the process altogether (I am assuming not and that it will re-start on startup)
2. If i do disable the process will i still be able to use skype and my webcam and headset
3. How do I disable it?
Please help. feeling dumb.

"You ask if it's necessary. All help appreciated" I too do not like programs running in the background and programs not openly described at
installation time. Myself, I deleted the file "communications_helper.exe" rather than "turn of the process", have saved file in a safe but folder apart; and have had no problems with either Skype or my other main video-communication program. I rely on each program's "video/camera" settings options to fine tune the image-- brightness, frames/sec, exposure, contrast, saturation, etc. everything. So far, after one week, no problems with any of the Skype features or that of my other video-conferencing software when using them with others over the internet. I have no "communications_helper" process running, nor do I have its registries entries any longer (I cleaned them out). You might want to try that.
So, I find the commmunication_helper file unnecessary.
I have a Logitech 9000 camera and run on XP Pro.
(Warning Note: Deleting this .exe file is
not a supported fix. Anyone not familiar with how to remove this file
are advised against doing so as it can cause more issues if done
incorrectly or to the wrong files. Logitech is not responsible for any
damages done by attempting this unsupported file removal.)
