takes up large percentage of CPU and is needless bosss
takes up a lot of memory and slows the machine flint
if its a problem, search your registry for the programs ran on startup, and there should be a registry value with the name of the file on, and delete the value.

Not very dangerous, I'm running on Xp, 800Hmz and 385 of Ram, it rise up my CPU to 100% every 30-35 min, explorer mades alot more errors. It cant be stopped with task manager.That also sucks. Dj

This, along with SPBBCSvc.exe, will take up 100% CPU. I used to be able to end it on the Windows task manager, but it now denies access to both. Get progressively worse. A-K
uses too much CPU, not helpful; my laptop is slower now. aa03
Win98, It stopped DOS window and other dos app's from runing. Claimed I was short on memory and shut down a program, try again. Steve
this is the log writting process so if you are getting attacked by another IP and logging is too high it can slow you down. You can disable creating a log event for rules that are going nuts, for example I've turned off logging for "Unused port blocking"  See also: Link aland
