<img src="http://homepage.mac.com/jayhawk/.Pictures/activity.monitor.jpg" width="634" height="252"/><br><br>my backup has been failing for about a week and i finally deleted some stuff on the external drive to give it the space it needs. i figured i should run my backup right now rather than wait, but my computer (dual gig) is running fairly slowly as it works (lotsa spinning beach balls). i just quit weatherman because it didn't look healthy and i quit safari a few moments before i took the screen shot above. what about kernel_task? i notice its process ID is 0. does that mean i can't force it to restart to give it a fresh start? will i crash my computer if i force it quit with process wizard?<br><br>and, is dnsupdate something in my system above my control or could it be a remnant of DNSUpate -- a little app i used to run when i was using my computer as server? i assume they are the same, but figured i'd ask before killing it and finding how to turn it off permanently.
