    I was poking around in the Activity Monitor today for fun and profit and I noticed a background process (40K of RAM) called Virtual PC 6. I don't remember anything like that before (and I do download lots of software from lots of places), and I was wondering if anyone else had noticed this/was able to calm me down as I think of my recent credit card purchases online...Thanks a lot, I swear I'm not a newbie :)

    If you do have VP6, then do you have the first part of the program booted?

    also, there are settings that pause Virtual PC's when they're not in the foreground, do you have this activated?
