    Ok so I have a HP Pavilion dv5000 and I have noticed lately that when I turn my computer back on the eabsrver.exe is taking over my process. It is working at 100% making my whole computer work really slow. When this happens I get errors like 0x0000000 and 0xc0000017. I can't run anything when this happens. I have McAfee and Spy Sweeper on my computer and they cant find anything wrong.

    I have noticed that when I go into my task manager and end the eabserver.exe process all the problems go away and my computer works fine. I have done a lot of research on this whole problem but can't find anything. I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions.
