  Are you by any chance running any of:

Sonic Solutions burning software containing DLA component

Norton/MacAffee/Symantec antivirus or antispyware

Logitech webcam software with "Logitech process monitor" service

Kerio, Agnitum or ZoneAlarm Personal Firewall

Iolo System Mechanic/AntiVirus/Firewall


Windows Defender 

Embassy Trust Suite fingerprint reader software wxvault.dll

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
