    Chris,

    Not spyware, it's a performance data log file, used to check CPU and other devices.

    You can disable it by going to Control Panel>Administrative tools>services. Scroll down to performance logs and alerts. Right click and click on properties. Go to start up type and change to "disabled".

    To read a little more technical description of _total, go to: PERFORMANCE

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
