Well, I opened up my trusty dashboard this morning, took a gander at islayer, and noticed that I had some weird @$$ processes running. I should first say that I intentionally opened up islayer to see what was running because my computer has been lagging in speed. Here's whats running, cupsd Syncserver mdworker systemUIS... sh ps windowsserver makewhatis login.code config.d Alright, lets put it this way. I use my computer preeetty much for surfing the net, don't have much downloaded on it, and i've never heard of these things. I've been in system preferences and checked to see what the start up processes are (there are none). Can someone tell me why these programs would be running all of the sudden? How can turn them off, why would they be running, they never have before? Im hoping its not a virus. Thanks for help, suggestions, clarification, or simply letting me know i'm a no0b!
