What is PQV21SVC.exe?

The above has recently appeared on my start up menu on msconfig, It appears to be using loads of system memory and slowing the machine down to a crawl.

Google search produces no results.

AVG, Spybot, Adaware, report clean machine.

If I stop the application from within task manager, I can see no detrimental effects .

Athlon 64 3500 2Gb RAM etc

Any ideas

try taking the tick out of it in msconfig and see what happens after a reboot.

You've come up with something apparently incredibly rare here - a billions to one chance...:-)

None of the usual search engines can shed a light on it, even Google.

Have you detailed it accurately in your thread title?

Oh ye of little faith.

It appears to be part of Norton Ghost, Running an icremental backup .

Quite why it slows the system down to a crawl needs further investigation.

However I can at least now play with it.
