Hi. For what it's worth, I have experienced exactly the same problem as described by kasmoooski - on two separate machines. One machine runs Vista, the other Windows 7 and both have completely different anti-virus tools. I noticed the problem started at around the time of the switch to British Summer Time - possibly a coincidence, but odd that it happened on both machines at about the same time. Prior to this happening, I had been running the Belkin backup utility (to a USB disk connected to the router) on one machine successfully enough - but no longer. I have disabled all Belkin services and no longer have these processes consuming all CPU but it's not very satisfactory that this software cannot be used any more.

Latest Belkin firmware and router monitor software downloaded and installed.

Has anyone else found a solution to getting this Belkin software working again?

Peabrain - please start your own thread. It is considered poor forum etiquette to "hijack" someone else's thread.

Many apologies - I thought I was supplying supporting information for the original post. Apparently not.

Sorry, it sounded as though you were asking for a solution to your problem.

I am - but in the context of the original post: The original post describes a problem with 2 specific processes that are linked to Belink routers. The advice provided so far has been to stop the offending processes (which, as I have described, can be acheived by disabling the services) and this stops these looping processes - but that hasn't addressed either the root cause [why has this suddenly happened now?] or the real solution [how to run the Belkin software successfully]. I had hoped that by sharing that there are other folk out there with the same problem which started at about the same time but with different configurations (OS/Antivirus) this may trigger a response that would adequately address the original question - and help me in the process.
