Default com.smithmicro.DM running around 70%

My hero seems to be a bit slower than usual. I stared up astro file manager and used their process tool to show that com.smithmicro.DM is running at around 70%. Why would this process be using so much CPU and is there any way to alleviate the cpu processing being done?

what does com.smithmicro.DM do anyways? I mean, if it's nothing too important, you could always remove it.

i dont know, but i thought i read this was to be on the ignore list as it manages the data between your phone and your SD card.

I pulled the battery on my phone, and so far it looks a bit better.

it's causing my update PRL/Profile to crash and cause weird bugs (i.e. PRL showing 26762 or something random until a profile update/crash).

From the sound of this info, it seems that the app probably isn't totally necessary. App name coming soon. Do a nandroid, remove the apk, and reboot. If nothing is wrong, then we know we can remove it safely. Do some testing, like download a file from the internet to your SD card. That would be the only thing that concerns me about this app. App name coming soon, again.

I guess no one experimented with this?

Shouldn't there be a process website that describes what these processes do?

If you kill the process "com.smithmicro.DM" you will no longer receive over the air firmwear updates. The "DM" stands for device management, and I know for a fact that HTC uses smith micro for their FOTA updating.
