Computer too slow

It looks like I got a resident program that is making my pc very slow at times and the hard disk light is on much of the time.

I've already checked for viruses, installed programs, scanned and defragged the system yet it is not 100% as it was.

Now I'm checking the Task Manager for running processes, but some I cannot understand. There is one in particular called CIDAEMON.EXE and when I try to shut it down, it increases memory usage enormously. (up to almost 200K)

Help me... I'm LOST!!!

to find out what the running processes do, type the program name into google
