Hello and Merry Xmas to all!
In regards to the following files: mdmcls32.exe (a true memory hog), cfgmng32.exe, and svcprs32.exe…all of theses files were found in Task Manager (Processes) after I installed CA Security Suite. After what I thought was way to much time trying to determine the source of these files, I was finally able to conclude that they were programs installed by "CA Security Suite", which I had recently Installed. This was a freebie provided by my ISP (Mediacom), that I had used in previous years with little problems with performance. The major difference in this version compared to the previous version, were the additions of these programs: CA Anti-Spam, CA Website Inspector, CA Parental Controls, and CA Desktop DNA Migrator.
To cut to the chase I used the Control Panel “Add and Remove programs” to uninstall “CA Security Suite” and was able to just uninstall the above programs, and my erroneous “processes” went away.
I was particularly concerned with “mdmcls32.exe as it would use 33MB of memory in one instance, and sometimes there would be several instances of this process running simultaneously (at one point I had over 70MB of memory usage for this one process). I hope this is useful to anyone experiencing the same problems, as I spent at least six hours researching this problem, and |I would not wish that on my worst enemy (well maybe I would).
