What is dhagent.exe?

Part of DHAgent

Description of dhagent.exe from the publisher
DriverHound is the only driver updater program that automates driver updates. Using DriverHound you can establish preferences to your liking and the program will download, install, and update your drivers automatically. A computer system is made up of different devices (printer, speakers, mouse, hard drive, monitor, etc.) that are all connected to the central processing unit (CPU). Each of these devices is an entity unto itself that relies on communicating with the CPU to ensure they are following the commands they receive. The driver is the communication mechanism/software that relays the message back and forth between the CPU and the device. If the drivers are outdated they can relay incorrect information to the CPU, which can result in a computer crash.
