It runs when any Windows compliant audio card (which uses Windows audio hooks) is playing sound.
Try quitting audiodg in task manager, you will probably lose audio.
I have one audio card... an older RME PCI card that does not hook itself into the windows audio system, if I set it as the default audio device in Winamp, audiodg does not run.
I think people that are seeing a lot of CPU use are using a lot of the background DSP stuff.
