Nasty little bugger.

If you've performed any Adobe updates lately you may have noticed that there is something "constantly" tapping into processing power. After some investigation there's a little .exe that is loaded with some recent updates that is set to be on by default. The darn thing sits there and accesses your drive continually. And, its a deep access, not one of those light tapping ones. I have a TB drive here (two 500G partitioned drives) and I thought I had a problem. All fixed now by doing msconfig/Startup and turning that thing off. It will interfere with your computing experience.

Adobe Photo Downloader 3.0

That's the culprit right there!

Do you know which Adobe package that comes with?

I've got a bunch of Adobe software running on my machines (Photoshop, Acrobat, etc.) and I don't see that process on any of them.

I have CS2. It looks like that adproxy.exe comes with the Photoshop Album Start Edition.
