tmproxy - Windows Vista

My sister has a new eMachine T-5880. It is running incredibly slow. it has Windows Vista installed. When I checked the performance tab in Task Manager I found that the CPU usage was nearly 100%. When I checked to see which process was hogging the cpu I found that the tmproxy.exe process was using in excess of 90% of the processor capacity. It is my understanding that this process is required for essential applications to work properly. Can anyone tell me what this is and how I can prevent it from hogging the cpu?

Thanks
Robert

I hit submit too fast...

So anyway, if you're finding that it is a consistent problem, you could look at alternative software.  They don't seem to have a solution posted on their website regarding this particular issue [not that I can find, anyways].

Does PC-cillin A/V software come pre-loaded on these machines? If so, would the best thing be to go to Add/Remove programs, uninstall it and then install a different Anti-Virus program?

I can't find what software comes preloaded on their boxes, it seems they don't do direct sales; only via 3rd party big box vendors.

As for uninstalling, personally I don't use PC-cillin (haven't tried it...) so I would remove it.  There's other products that I've found work for me.  Grisoft's AVG antivirus (free version).
