I have been trying to trace down why I would find JAVA.EXE running uisng 100% of a processor. This is on a Windows XP Pro SP2 system. I found I could recreate the problem by going invoking JAVA from control panel and then checking for updated. Java.exe starts up and uses 100% of a processor. I have to kill the process to get it to go away. I uninstalled CMF and repeated the test. Java.exe started and ended very quickly (before I closed the control panel applet). I reinstalled CMF and once again Java.exe remained running using 100% of a processor.
I think I have seen a similar problem with another application but have not had a chance to verify that recollection.
Has anyone else seen something similar?
