In your head.
You can give us an entire list by using the Activity Monitor and saving the data as a Process list. You can then cut and paste the text.

Also, list what programs automaticly start when you log on. You will find that in Accounts (Finder-->Sys. Prefs->System>Accounts>Login Items).

Are you using any distributed processing programs? Like BOINC if so, that could be the culprate. Just a thought.
yeah i thought this might be it, becaseu i recently downloaded the client and hadn't been using it, i deleted it and everything went back to normal...thats wat i get for tryin to help out eh?
