CPU and memory hogging by various processes

Sometimes, a process named MSKDetect.exe starts running and pegs one core,
giving 50% total utilization. What does the process do, how to prevent it
from running?

Save.exe uses huge amounts of RAM, as do DWM and Sidebar (which also does
gigabytes of disk reads, all this just to run a clock?).

Killing these 3 processes has no effect on system operation, so what do they
do and why are they invoked. It would be nice to have the clock, but not at
the expense of continual disk churning.

I think I've got Search under control; it just looks at Outlook, so it's not
running frantically every time I load a Web page.

disk, 2.8 GHz hyperthreaded Pentium.

Well, you possibly seeing a temporary performance issue since the focus of
BETA 2 and on forward is to optimize the performance of the code. I would
use the Feedback link located on the Vista desktop and use the appropriate
link to send in feed back to Windows Team about the issues you are
experiencing.
