The application digservices.exe is part of a series of files pertaining to the application ESPN RunTime developed by The Walt Disney Internet Group and licensed by ESPN. The digservices.exe file enables users to view videos online (most especially those found on the ESPN websites). Initial viewing of videos on such websites generally prompts the user to install the digservices.exe application so as to view all of the featured windows. This application is often associated with the ESPN toolbar, which can also be installed and attached to the users browser.
The file digservices.exe is not to be associated with the Windows Operating System. However, the digservices.exe application can be classified as an additional plug-in to the Microsoft Internet Explorer and other similar web browsers. The application digservices.exe automatically loads as the user starts the system and is always ready to use. The file digservices.exe itself does not take up much space (106KB at most) and only consumes a very small portion of ram.
It is entirely up to the user whether or not to keep the digservices.exe application running in the background and the digservices.exe process can safely be terminated directly without having any drawbacks as far as system performance is concerned. In fact, most users terminate the digservices.exe application manually and then just manually restart the digservices.exe file whenever the need arises. There are no known risks associated with the digservices.exe so the program is safe to leave as is.
ESPN RunTime as well as the ESPN toolbar is two interactive tools offered by ESPN. By downloading the ESPN RunTime, the user will be able to view the freshest videos on their website, as well as watch highlights and replays of sports events they may have missed (or would like to watch again). The ESPN toolbar, on the other hand, is a search engine integrated on web browser applications that helps redirect users to Internet links which users might prefer over the ones linked from other search engines.
This is a safe process. There is no necessity to remove this process from your system or change it in any way.
