I guess it just depends on where you downloaded it. I almost always have the open hardware monitor gadget showing my cpu and gpu usage and temperatures on my second monitor so I'd have noticed if it was doing anything like that.

Really, I don't even use foobar anyway. I got it a while back to play around with, but realized I was basically trying to make it work the same as the way I have winamp set up so I went back to using winamp. I just kept it for converting other formats into mp3.

Gonna sell an old laptop. I will only leave Windows and office on it, deleted everything else. What I am afraid off is that some personal data can be recoverable by some computer ninjas. So how do I avoid that? Should I use some software that clears out the entire disk and then reinstall windows etc. or is there software that can work around the stuff that I did not delete?

Short answer, take out hard drive and destroy it totally.

Long answer, 0 write it repeatedly with software designed for it then pray it works as even this may not render everything unrecoverable. By now you need specialised tools however.
