For some odd reason, a process called CTsvcCda.EXE has started appearing in my system's process list. This has never shown up in my process list before in all the years I've been jinking around with this old desktop. Neuber et al suggest it has something to do with Creative Technologies media stuffs, either an MP3 player or something to do with CDs. Don't have an MP3 player, though. A search for the file shows it in two locations: C:\I386 and C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32.

Is this something bad, or did the machine just suddenly rediscover old software?

Disc Detector from "Creative Technology Ltd". It detects the insertion of an audio CD into your multimedia drive and then launches Creative's player to play the audio

Yeah, I figured out that much on my own. Problem is I don't (or shouldn't, to my knowledge) have any Creative software installed on this machine. Inserting an audio CD only brings up the WinXP prompt of what to do with the disc, by the way... no player is launched, Creative Tech or otherwise.
