    What user(s) own the processes, Admin, system, a single user or a bunch of users?

    Msinfo32 is pretty harmless, unless it's some form of malware disguised I wonder?

    Can't you kill the processes from Task Manager? I presume the event logs give no clues?

    Nothing in the logs. I can kill them off one by one. If i leave the server to it lots will build up. As you say its harmless enough but each instance is using memory.
