What is it doing when it's doing nothing? Like clockwork, RVS 2010 Home Free (rvsmon.exe) accesses my hard drive every 30 seconds, for about 10 seconds, reading or writing 50-70 K/sec, and using 25% of my CPU (maxing out one of the quad cores). Disk activity is almost entirely at the start and end of each 10-second run. Memory use by rvsmon.exe is constant, just under 30 MB. I've got EVERYTHING turned off in RVS: System Safe and Virus Guard are disabled, Virus Guard is set to not collect or send reports of malicious activity, remote control is turned off, it shouldn't be doing anything but occupying space in the System Tray area. I've spent hours adjusting it and scanning documentation and forums, no one mentions this 30-second cycle abuse. The old version stayed quiet until I needed it, worked well when I used it, I recommended it to anyone I thought would understand it. It quit working when the license through Giveaway of the Day expired, would not "revert" to a free version as promised. Why is "progress" always a step backwards?
