Do I need DPAgent.exe?

I have ProBook with W7 64-bit, and DPAgent.exe is consuming a lot of memory, can I remove it? What will happen if I do? Thanks

Important: Some malware camouflage themselves as DpAgent.exe, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the DpAgent.exe process on your pc whether it is pest.

Its part of the digital persona fingerprint software. If you don't use the fingerprint function then it is ok to remove, or  try updating the software.
