|I think it has something to do with webcam or PCI RAID controller card... noticed it after I installed both. However once my system goes into screen saver mode, can't get back to desktop normally and when I do VM303_STI is taking up 99 percent of processor time. Shutting it down from processes tree doesn't really effect my system that much. Haven't been able to trace its purpose and or utility. Asif Attique|

|Came with a Webcam, Apparently its required to use it but i've been hearing things about it. I think it might be smarter just to get a webcam that doesnt give you a potentially adware/spyware application. (Also when i boot up my webcam which is now not working theres weird classical music playing for about 1-4 minutes) Donny|
|THE FIX !!! It's a TSR proccess called VM303_STI that is launched at startup belonging to A4 tech webcam. To stop it: start menu - run - type "msconfig" (ok) - goto Startup - search for "VM303_STI" - uncheck it - ok - restart - all done king|
