What is Curtains for windows system service?


I have an application running when I display task manager that is taking up alot of Cpu time, can you tell me what it is?

the name is " Curtains Sys Svc Nt "

It usually pegs out about 30 to 45000 K and can take up to 60% of my CPU.

I have been clicking on it to end the process which usually corrects the problem.

Can you tell me what this is?

Curtains for Windows System Service (CurtainsSysSvc) command name CurtainsSysSvcNt.exe is legitimate software listed as one of windows xp/nt services It is related to the authentium Inc which is security software It has an antivirus, antispyware, URL filtering, parental controls, pop-up filter, anti-phishing and more I suggest deleting it from your hard drive and downloading an antispyware from That much security isn’t needed for the regular user If you have a few files that need to be saved incase of a virus attack (which is rare), just back them up to a disk Then reinstall your operating system if you have any problems with the system which is recommended yearly anyway.
