question about some processes in Activity Monitor

hey everyone,

i know alot about windows, but im new to mac os x operating systems. im currently using my sisters old macbook which has 10.4.11(Tiger) on it right now and i have 2 questions.

1. In Activity Monitor, i notice that the Process ID numbers keep changing for some processes. The number will keep going higher or lower. is this normal? or malware of some sort?

2. also in Activity Monitor, i have no idea what these 2 processes are: "master" and "pickup". the Process IDs keep rising for them. are these process part of the mac operating system?

p.s. i also compared my activity monitor list to some other peoples' list i found on google and they dont have master or pickup but i do.

Re: question about some processes in Activity Monitor

What are those processes running under? User? Root? I dont think those are anything you should worry about. Do the PID's change when you close the program or while its open? That all sounds a little weird but I dont think you need to worry.
