I am running 10.04 on an AMD-64 CPU. I have been noticing a slowdown
on occasion for several months. System Monitor shows 100% CPU and
more network activity than I would expect. This occurs when Firefox
and Thunderbird are running. Running 'top' shows 'virtuoso-t'
taking 46.9% of CPU and two instances of 'nepomukservices' taking
18% and 15% of CPU.
Are these malware of some kind?
Malware, yes, in the fact that they are installed without your
knowledge/permission. Welcome to KDE. Master knows best.
Thanks for your help.

Replying to my own message.
Thank you Sonny and Cybe for the clues I needed to find the source of
the problem. It appears to have been fixed. This is what I did. First I
tried the suggestions I found on Google. No change.
Then I went in to /usr/bin and renamed all of the executable files
They are after renaming:
This seems to have solved the problem. I am using UBUNTU 10.04 and gnome 2.
Next system update will put them right back. Sorry.
