    In my Windows Task manager I have this: "rundll32.exe msvcrt.dll,sleep". This process hogs memory and CPU time like crazy. It can go to 550MB of RAM and 50% of CPU time pretty quickly one it starts up. I end this process from time to time, but it comes on again after a while. I end it 3 to 4 times a day. I was wondering if my msvcrt.dll is hijacked by some virus?
