    This is an update service file from intuit.com, this site provides free service for bussiness like, tax planning, free website and all. If there is any software that you or someone else has installed on your computer which is related to the site, that may be the process which is checking for update every moment. I have no idea about this site though...

    Is it safe to disable this file from task manager? I don't want this file to run as it takes so much memory and processor that when this file is running, my computer becomes too laggy. Please help!

    Yeah, you can terminate the file from task manager, also you can disable this file from msconfig not making this file run, on every boot. Well as there are many people who claims that this file makes the computer, terribly slow and have opted to disable this file from running without any problem.
