2004 Task Scheduler background activity

I've noticed interesting activity with the new Task Scheduler found in
SolidWorks 2004. It runs as a process called swBOEngine.exe that shows up
under Task Manager. Even if SolidWorks is not running or there are no tasks
scheduled it just sits there and creates and then deletes a file named
Swbo1.ldb about once every second. This file doesn't show up in explorer
but fills my Norton protected Recycle bin very quickly. I have also noticed
explorer flashing as if updating at this same rate at times. This flashing
stops when I stop the process from running. It also shows using 1-2% of CPU
time while running.

I'm thinking this may have something to do with the Beta testing I did. I've checked two other seats that never had the Beta installed and the process doesn't start on them until the Task Scheduler is run. There must be a left over registry setting that didn't get corrected when SP0 was installed. I cleaned all the normal registry settings before installing SP0 so it must lie elsewhere.

To rid yourself of this mess, go to:
( C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup ) and remove SWBOengine.exe from your start-up group.

Dave, don't forget to restart swBOengine.exe before you use the task scheduler or it won't work.
if you remove it from the start menu you'll have to restart it manually.
