I have pages of C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Titanium\plugin\Pt\Sponge\sponge.dat-journal running for 30-60 minutes now. Lots of tiny tasks, hard drive is in constant churn. Why do I have so many and what are they doing?
sponge.dat is used by the program to store feedback. It should be normal. But to isolate whether this is the cause of the problem, can you disable the related service and see if it improves the situation?
1. Tap on your keyboard Windows+R, then type services.msc 2. Look for Platinum Host Service, then click STOP
