As before, this process is of no real use and can be safely disabled without any impact on sound output.
Part of SB Live! software, it loads when using the 'Optimize 3-D effects' option in AudioHQ device controls.
It tied up my internet connection badly. Once I disable it in the msconfig boot-up menu, problem went away. Always, always, keep track of your msconfig 'start on boot-up programs' that are normally enabled.
