I am trying to get to the bottom of an intermitant system slowdown on one of my NT4 workstations. One of the guys just hollared at me because it was happening again, and I opened the task manager. I found about six processes running called daconfig.exe. What is this process? Could it be causing my slowdown? Below, I've pasted all the processes that were running at the time. If anything looks not right, let me know...

0 Idle.exe
2 System.exe
20 SMSS.exe
24 CSRSS.exe
34 WINLOGON.exe
40 SERVICES.exe
45 LSASS.exe
94 navapsvc.exe
97 npssvc.exe
103 RPCSS.exe
92 NDDEAGNT.exe
114 ziptoa.exe
128 PSTORES.exe
131 mstask.exe
107 alertsvc.exe
144 daconfig.exe
148 LOADWC.exe
155 Imgicon.exe
79 navapw32.exe
42 plotter.exe
49 DDHELP.exe
192 hpzeng03.exe
171 Job.exe

daconfig.exe is the executable for 3Com diagnostics. It is not required for the the card to run. You can disable it if you want to. I am not sure why it would have 6 copies of itself loaded at one time though.

Were any of the apps showing a large amount of processor time when it happend? Also was one taking up a large amount of memory?


Also, it looks like something might have just crashed on you since I see DrWatson poking his old nappy head up.
