    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...

    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.
