Hello everyone... I started my disk defragmenter program a few days ago. It had never been run on it's automatic schedule possibly due to a conflict with my AVG security system. So anyway it had been chugging away, for three days off and on when I notice that my bubble screen saver had gotten very jerky. I figured it might be because of the defrag running so I let it be. Then this morning I canceled the defrag to see if this was the case. Well it wasn't and at that time I noticed that other things like opening email and switching users was getting awfully slow. That's when I found this little process running, gffinish.exe It was using no less the 40 cpu and spiking very frequently to 100. I've noticed that it wasn't listed on bleepingcomputer's
list so I thought I would come here and let you all know about it. I have shut the process down to no ill effect and everything is back to normal, humming away nicely. Anyone got any ideas what this was and where it came from?
** Follow up...... my friend helped me here and found that it was part of a computer game (Grim Fandango) that I had uninstalled several weeks ago. Why it chose to start up and run at such a high CPU rate now is still a mystery to me...
