failing app slowing pc down

  gingepaul 21:38 04 May 2004

A friend of mine asked me to look at her pc as it behaving incredibly slow, and after installing all latest drivers, patches, defragging, runnin adaware, antivirus, blar blar it was still the same.
so i looked through device manager and found an app called 'fvprotect' which was not responding, right from a fresh start up. after shutting this app down the system is ok again. with this app trying to run the cpu is at 100%, and after it drops to 0-11%.
the problem is she doesnt know what it is, and after doing various searches and lookin in msconfig i cannot find it, does anyone know what this app is, and how to shut it down please?

shes running 98 se on a Pll with 64 mb ram ( i know, but it does her ), and i only just reinstalled for her a month ago, doh.
