Wsqmcons.exe Description :

Windows SQM Consolidator. Description of this background task by Microsoft at the time of writing, 30-Aug-2008 : "This Vista scheduled task runs when you install Windows Vista and it also runs daily if the user consented to participate in the Microsoft Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program. This program collects and sends usage data to Microsoft. The Wsqmcons.exe program is located in the System32 folder".

This task only runs transiently which is why you will not always see it on the Tasks tab of TUT.

Annoyingly, however, is the fact that most users will occasionally see this task running even though they know for certain that they never agreed to participate in the Microsoft Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program ! Hmmm.

Wsqmcons.exe Recommendation :

Down to end-user's choice.

If you feel you absolutely want to make sure this task never runs, then, for advanced users only, here is Microsoft's suggested solution for turning OFF the Customer Experience Improvement Program :

The Customer Experience Improvement Program (Help \ Customer Feedback Options) is included with Office 2003/2007 and is turned off by default. The following Windows registry setting controls whether it is enabled :

Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Common

Value name: QMEnable

Value type: DWORD

Value data: [0 | 1]

Setting the QMEnable data value to 1 enables the program; setting it to 0 disables it.
