Every now and again (NOT when I have a scan scheduled) my computer will slow down to a complete crawl and CPU usage will zoom up
to 50%-75% and hang there.
I checked the task manager and discovered that it was scanningprocess.exe that was using the CPU.
At first I thought that it would eventually drop back down to its usual 2%-5% usage, but after 40 minutes I had to restart.
It seems to happen mainly after switching users from my wife's user account to mine (both remain logged on).
Has anyone else had this happen?
Is this just a Vista thing?
