    does anyone know what these processes are? i've done a google search and
    found a hit for spm.exe as a password manager (which has never been
    installed) and sqldb.exe seems to only be mentioned once as just
    renaming an existing app called xylobot which is a keystroke recorded
    used to make macro's for gaming and i dont think this is xylobot since
    its also never been installed. plus xylobot is a 2meg download and both
    these files are 50k. Actually, i think both files are the same thing
    since they are both exactly the same size.

    I rebooted my machine and the cpu usages was back to normal. Both those
    programs were running when i booted back up. I killed both of them and
    renamed both files. I'll see if anything complains now about not finding
    a file.

    I tried scanning both those files with 2 different virus scanners (with
    current virus defs) and both of them said the files were clean.

    Anyone got any ideas?
