    Thanks for the offer. By reading that small text at the bottom of my screenshot I noticed the word IMinent which I decided to Google. It turns out (I think) that this is something to do with the "IMinent Toolbar" which is something I'd never heard of - and didn't even know was installed. However, it was pretty simple to uninstall using Control Panel. I'll need to keep monitoring things to make sure it doesn't come back!

    The interesting thing is that it seemed to get installed at around the same time that I installed the trial versions of WindowBlinds and Start8 so I'm beginning to suspect that Stardock might be the culprit!!

    When used with discernment, Resource Monitor is useful for pinpointing bottle necks and misbehaving processes in cpu, memory, disk and network.
