coreServiceShell.exe What is it doing anyway?

My computer just pretty much froze up today for about 30 minutes. 

 

(let's not go into computer specs that ain't it)

Ok...

XP pro SP3 all updates 32bit

XEON 5160 2.99Ghz

4GB ram

160GB hdd with about 54GB free

Nvidia FX3500 quadro

 

anyway...

 

My question is does anyone know what exactly coreServiceShell.exe is doing anyway?  It wasn't performing any system scan that I setup on my workstation.  It would appear to me it is indexing something sorta behind the scenes.  Every so often this happens and everytime I notice this file running.

Sorry, the DS 8 - is Deep Security 8 product and WFBS 7 - is worry free business security product.  Both is Trend Micro security products.

Multiple Trend Micro products use that file. Which Trend Micro antivirus product do you have installed? Have you installed the latest version, service pack, and/or patches for it?
