    XP Pro, 32bit, 1.6g dual core centrino, 2gb ram.
    It's a well 'looked after' piece of kit, I have not experienced anything like this before (and checked evreything). I disabled AVG9free to install, and routed other progs when I installed. cannot understand why it did what it did. It happened several time before uninstall.

    Was a particular program you were using causing it?

    I uninstalled it as well. I found it to be slow and for some reason it loaded loads of processes everytime I booted up. Decided that googlesync was smaller, simpler and an easier way to get my calendar updated.

    No! It was sitting in the system tray. Looking into it, I found it trying to add add a process it already had going, hence the loop... I'd have to reinstall to find the process, but it was an 'FS.....exe'

    thing is, I had given it 'rights'...
    weird
