    So, I have a process named "http://www.acu-free.com, ..." in activity monitor. That scares me. What the heck is going on here? I uploaded a screenshot with as much info as possible. google-fu did nothing.

    Update: Now i says techradar.com Two websites I don't remember visiting at all.

    Don't worry about it. Sounds like you have Spotlight suggestions turned on (bottom of the screen). So probably searched something in Spotlight that came up with a search hit on that site and it preloaded it in the Spotlight process.

    For example I just turned it on and searched for "test" and a Spotlight process for the the site http://www.speedtest.net/ showed up in my Activity Monitor. I don't have that site in my bookmarks and have not visiting that sites in ages.

    It just preloads suggestions based on your Spotlight search.

    Whew thank you so much. Nearly wrote the website and told them their marketing was really freaky!
