All comments about arservice.exe:
This is a process which belongs to the Windows XP Media Center. This program is non-essential process to the running of the program, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems. Rochelle
Involved in ensuring that all parts of your Media Center are properly started and made ready when you power up your PC or, more importantly, when your PC is awakened from hibernation or power saving mode. Neezoodle
Thanks Neezoodle. That explains why it is safe to delete from task manager after you have started your computer since it is only needed for startup or hibernation. WildernesswayTR

It was what started an attack on my XP Media computer and reconfigured by ATT wireless card Douglas Stevenson
It ate 90% of CPU - canceled with no ill effect - bought back 90% Schornack
If you are using HP t3725.tr desktop computer, do not close this service. If you stop this, you can't enable stand by mode with sleep button on the keyboard (which is top-left.) HP USER
