      CVMCompiler -- Mac OS X Core Virtual Machine Compiler 



    CVMCompiler is a transient system daemon that performs generic slave

         tasks controlled by CVMServer.


         There are no configuration options to CVMCompiler.  Users should not run

    Launchd is the parent process, so it starts on reboot. Did you install Parallels ? I'm not sure their exact job but their footprint is pretty small. It seems OSX Lion is isolating different tasks to run in a virtual machine. I'd love to hear more from someone that knows exactly what it is and doing.

    i have the same problem on mountain lion and in my case both said (64bit).... now while check the activity monitor i just realised that i only have 1 and not 64bit!
