_webview.pyd is a Python Dynamic Module for the Digsby social media/ instant messaging / email application named Digsby. A .pyd file is used with the Python programming language. Proponents of the language claim that it is cleaner and more efficient than some other programming languages. It is also supposed to improve productivity among programmers because of its “cleaned-up” code.
_webview.pyd is one of the operational files of the aforementioned Digsby program. It runs through the Windows registry, which is a database of .pyd, .dll, and other files run by programs.
The Windows registry keeps these kinds of files running in one place so that they don’t slow down the computer. However, sometimes the directory can become corrupted because of viruses, programs that don’t uninstall properly, or out-of-date entries.
The best sure way to keep a clogged registry from slowing down or even crashing a computer is to run a regular scan and clean-up. You can scan your registry for free at ZookaWare PC Cleaner.com.
