Hmm ever since I installed Ubuntu 11.11 on my Dell 13 laptop, this thing has popped up in my running processes, e-addressbook-factory.

Which from what I understand is linked to Evolution, which I do not use, so why does it start up and eat my CPU at 100%.

I even tried to uninstall Evolution which was not a smart move at Ubuntu fell over because even when you don’t used Evolution Ubuntu does. Which meant I had to install Ubuntu again to get it to run right again as the attempt to install just Evolution again failed big time.

After some searching around on the net I haven’t found away to cure this problem. I have asked over on – so lets see if someone answers.

Opening up your terminal and enter “killall -9 e-addressbook-factory” stops e-addressbook-factory but does not prevent it from starting again later and eat your CPU.
