Happens in all the apps I use. Some words do not generate the effect. "spontaneously' is not the only word that generates the effect.

MS SE scan completed.

stand by - odd process detected. srvany.exe

srvany.exe doesn't appear to be suspicious: srvany.exe Windows process - What is it?

But I really don't know what could be causing this. I guess if you're feeling motivated, do some more detective work and figure out exactly what key combos cause this...

Yes, srvany passed the smell test, I just don't know what is using it. I do not like 'not knowing'.

As for the anomaly, I suspect the Office 2010 install. I did an in place upgrade.

In the coming days, I will be rearranging RAID arrays (to place a 6 drive RAID5 on the Intel Matrix controller and moving my boot array to another controller). This should eliminate the problem.

I should close this thread, unsolved, as I am not wont of deciphering the specific cause. But, I will continue to 'background process' because that is my nature. Specifically, I will look for key combos. I wonder if the pesky SendKeys from VBA is involved.

Sure, whatever you prefer. The irony of the word "spontaneously" triggering a spontaneous program launch just kills me, though So meta.

As usual, let us know if anything turns up.

Cheers,

Problem spontaneously vanished.

Wow, that's great Casca! Did you do a Repair Install? Was there anything else about your solution a future reader should know about?

I'll flag this thread to be marked 'Solved'.
