One thing I have experienced is that certain Motherboard suppliers infest their users with BCU (Browser Configuration Utility), a parasitic implant that does absolutely nothing for the unfortunate user but hogs the memory and generates a huge number of events. It is also said to slow down the computer and dominate browsing freedom.

My Firewall logged over 10,000 BCU records in no time at all under "Processes Detected", a massive log of irrelevant events, all due to BCU activity.

My Motherboard is supplied by Gigabytes Technology but another Motherboard that infests the poor user with this BCU plague is Asus, there may be others.

I uninstalled BCU with Revo Uninstaller, getting rid of all the leeching remnants and life is now good, not a wisp of operational efficiency detected in being without this BCU parasite and my FW is no longer trying to burst it`s capacity (and my memory) keeping up with those thousands of insignificant and useless BCU event logs.

Please note that you cannot disable this beast using "msconfig", CCleaner or such means, it is infested with immortality whilst on your PC and keeps coming back. You have to use the ultimate deterrent and uninstall it through the Control Panel>Add/Remove or use a more thorough program like Revo Uninstaller that gets rid of all the left-over residue which normal uninstall programs always leave behind, usually in the Registry.

Conclusion :- If you have BCU contaminating your PC, then DUMP IT quick ! You will never miss it.
