Hey guys, I've got a crazy problem over here. smbd is running over 200 threads (maybe its called processes not threads, but its smbd listed over 200 times in activity monitor) on my computer. After I've been in OS X for about 10-15 minutes, the smbd process shows up in activity monitor and duplicates itself rapidly until my VM size reahces roughly 24GB and then I can't do anything because its using up so much of my virtual memory that other apps can't launch. I really hope someone knows how to fix this. thanks! --Casey MacBook Pro 2.0GHz OS X 10.4.6 2GB RAM PS - I read up on the process and apparently its used for windows sharing. In my sys prefs when I go to sharing, windows sharing is off and the start button is disabled.
