    Ok, if I go to the terminal and type "top" or go to the activity monitor I get hundreds of processes called "SmallScanner" owned by root.

    Any ideas what this is?

    Cheers

    I have two processes entitled "SmallScanner" owned by me, consuming half of my CPU. The activity monitor says that the parent process is DiskMountNotify.

    I believe this is slowing down my powerbook. ANy idea what it is?

    four years too late

    i believe "Small Scanner" processes are Norton Antivirus.
