    Question backupstack.exe hogs CPU

    I thought someone had discussed this on Windows Secrets at some point, but "search" says otherwise. I'm using XP, fully updated, and there's a process called backupstack.exe that eats CPU time -- 40% for about a minute earlier this evening. Yes, I like to have a backup of the stack, but I also like a responsive computer. Open apps: Firefox (with a bezillion tabs ...), 2 excel files, 2 Word files, Outlook, and one Windows Explorer window. Other issues possibly relevant: only 24 GB empty on a 140 GB hard disk, 2 GB main memory on a 6 year old machine. Yes, I KNOW I need to upgrade. Next month! Is backupstack doing what it should?

    If you use or, then you probably need it.

    If not, look for one of those programs to uninstall.

    What is "backupstack.exe"?
