Looks like you client may have a local SQL*Server database running in
the background.  MicroSlop is bundling a very cut down version of
SQL*Server with a number of their products lately.  Seems that they
never learn their lesson when it comes to unwanted bloat ware.  I'd
first do a search of the disk drive to find out where it's coming from
first & then use the server manager application they bundle in to
permanently shut it down.   Warning, there may be more than one.

Im seeing "mssqlmgr.exe" on one of our client machines.  Does anyone
know if this is a virus?  every time you kill the service, it spawns
another proces (2k)?
