Samsung Kies – what is „kiespdlr.exe“ used for?
If you use a device by Samsung and have installed Samsung Kies you will notice that there is program named
kiespdlr.exe running in background all the time. What is it used for?
Here an answer by Samsung (translated from German – I'm not sure, if the menu titles and function names are correct. If you know the exact menu titles, feel free to tell tell me, then I will update them):
After the installation of Samsung Kies “kiespdlr.exe” will start automatically when you turn on your PC. The programm checks if there is a software update for your smartphone on our firmware update servers, even when you don't start Kies. If this is the case the update will be downloaded to your computer automatically.
If you want to disable this function, start Samsung Kies. Open the menu “Tools - Firmware update settings”. Disable the function “Automatically download current firmware” here.
