Quick Look Server DashboardClient ... (Recently I was watching a web video -> FireFox crashed -> Excel crashed -> Process ID numbers went up to 30000. (Usually less than 1000) -> Kernel_task had 49 threads, usually ALWAYS 48, never mind what software I am running. I am truly wondering about malware possibilty in my computer, altough this is probably not the correct forum to discuss that in depth.)

We're trying to investigate it, but there doesn't seem to be any info online about it. I’d be interested in learning what synchronize-pref is for.

Nowhere else have I been able to get this question answered. There is no other reference to this process within the reach of Google search, and even in the Apple discussions site someone else is asking about SFLSharedPrefsTo to no avail. Much appreciated! Furthermore: do You (or someone else) know wheter it is normal / legitimate that this process is running even though I do not have a .Mac account? Thanks! Thanks a lot, Joshmax!
