    Processes

    I have a few processes that consume 99% of the CPU. Anyone have any idea where I could start on finding out why that process is doing this.

    Here are some examples
    SERVICE.EXE
    AVSYNMGR.EXE
    ZAPNOTES.EXE

    SERVICE.EXE
    If that is SERVICES and not plain old 'service' then it's part of the OS.

    AVSYNMGR.EXE
    That oen I recognize as AV software, Norton I think....? If it's consuming 99% of the CPU try uninstalling and re-installing the software.

    ZAPNOTES.EXE
    Does <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.notes.net/sandbox.nsf/Threads/CB07EBA6D4FB7C3985256944007403EA!OpenDocument>this post</A> get you going in the right direction? You could try disabling that to see if it's the contributing factor.

    Alternately, search your hard drive for the files and then right-click the file, and check the version tab. That may also give you a clue or two.
