Hi everyone. This morning I installed Cisco's VPN client, which will be a necessity for me in the coming days, or else I wouldn't have done it! It required me to put in my password to install, and I was a little hesitant to do so, but I did anyway - which may have been a bad idea.

Now I've noticed a bit of slowdown on my machine at odd times, and additionally the Activity Monitor shows two new processes: cvmsCompx8664 and cvmsServ

Are these processes normal and safe? Thanks for any input!

    I believe they are part of OpenGL.
