I have discovered digstream.exe running on a co-worker's computer (XP Pro). My research indicates that I need to disable it but I can;t figure out how to do that. Any advice?

Best idea is to go to Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel and uninstall it. If it doesn't show up as Digstream, it may be related to either ESPN or Disney. The good news is that it isn't spyware or a virus, the bad news is that there is an unknown limit of the amount of content that can be downloaded by it and how much it will either fill up a hard drive or use corporated bandwidth. It's primarily for pre-downloading clips from ESPN sports network or Disney content. Then, when enough of the stuff is downloaded, it pops up and says that something's ready for viewing.

"Digstream" is short for Disney Internet Group Streaming.

From what I've been reading, it looks like some people are having troubles uninstalling ESPN Motion, from Add/Remove.
If what Herk suggested doesn't work, there are a couple of other options here:
ESPNMotion: The New Pointcast?

I would try the one posted by Jeremiah, towards the bottom.
I would also do it in safe mode.
