Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software Management ZCfgSvc Service Functionality

ZCfgSvc is one of several background services that make up integral components of the Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software management. The service aids connection reliability in difficult radio frequency (RF) environments by monitoring the wireless connection link status. If the link status is down (connection lost), it invokes the wireless adapter device driver to do a scan (looking for a profile match) and attempts to reconnect. By disabling this service, certain background features of the wireless management software will become inoperable, but may not be apparent to the end user.

Note ZCfgSvc and ZeroConfigService are names for the same service. Depending on your Operating System, you may see either ZCfgSvc or ZeroConfigService.
