    Sometimes when I open certain apps the AppleSpell.service process automatically loads. It's a small process, just 1.7MB, it's perfectly fine to have, right?

    Depends if you like spell checking or not! That process is the spell checker you get in every text box in OSX.

    hmm, I think it loaded just by opening up iTunes!, but anyways, I don't mind having it, as long as it's a natural process within OS X.

    iTunes has text boxes in the information window. The process will start as soon as iTunes starts as the info window text boxes are probably created at start up.
