Hi irroL4, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

The drvmcdb.sys is part of a utility from Veritas Corporation which installs itself in the system tray to remind you to back up you files. This article has instructions for uninstalling this.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I am not sure if this info is helpful at all but the 2 windows look like the COMMAND PROMPT windows.
I followed the instructions from the link that you suggested, but when I looked for the VERITAS , it wasn't listed.

Thank you so much for your suggestions. I did try that but the files ...
ssdiag.exe
ssdiag.ini
were not listed anywhere.
In the System Config Utility there was something that I found that was strange though.
Attached File  utility.JPG   50.03KB   23 downloads
sorry about my "art" but I couldn't copy and paste it but this is what the "thing" that concerned me looked like. All of the other items listed there had an actual name down under the startup item column and command column. These three didn't. Could this be what I was looking for? or is it nothing to concern myself with?
Well ....Thanks again for your tips! If you know whether or not the Diagnostic Traces and the DrvmCDB windows aren't effecting my computer or the way it is working.... I mean... if it is nothing to worry about and basically just an annoyance, then I will let it be, but if there is a way to make it stop.... I'll try it :thumbsup:
Thanks again!
Lorri

Well I tried evey suggestion with no luck! I was determined to fix this so somehow I came across Security- Task Manager (the link is below). and downloaded the trial version and ran it and ....It worked!! So I thought I would pass this info on to others.
Thank you to all of the suggestions given! I have added BleepingComputer to my favorites as this site is loaded with awesome suggestions and help! Thanks again!
