I have a friend I am helping he has this in his processes. He is running winXP. It doesn't come up till he starts his browser, then it hogs up 30 to 60% of mem usage and 5 to 10% of cpu.

I think you will find it's a new spyware masquerading as a search bar. Luckily enough it's not very widespread yet.

and the file is it's auto update

asnip taken from it's T&C's

Hey Tony, I'm guessing he is trying to catch up with all the devs he's been doing recently. One thing for sure tho...once a prob is spotted...it doesn't take him long to correct. :)
