...that deal with pure data

I just noticed that whenever I launch pd-extended 0.42.5 on windows 7 64bit professional I get a crappy process running called wish85 which is meant to be by ActiveState.
Killing that process kills pd. Deleting the file and cleaning registry doesn't let pd run.
I uninstalled and reinstalled pd-extended and got the same crappy process running again...
Anyone else having this problem?
When I ran Pd on a wxxdows xp machine it showed the same process, but I didn't notice any abnormal behaviour. It ran quite well.
Is is really doing something like consuming a lot of resources?
I moved on to Debian three years ago to work on a system that I like a lot more, but those are personal reasons (seems that here it's not so kind to show one's preferences) and Pd runs as smooth as lukewarm water as well.
I hope that wish85.exe process is nothing "malicious".
@domien just gave me the idea of starting pd from a ms-dos console with the -nogui option. It may not load the tcl/tk stuff and pehaps not load wish85.exe as well. I remember that there was a tool in ms-windxxs to find out to which folder the programs in memory belonged. If that process belongs to a pd related folder, then it should be normal to have it running.
I hope this helps.
first of all sorry for the late post...
yeah crappy was the best word to describe the wish85 process. I just didn't know what it does and wish85 seemed to me like some malware process. In any case as you said it's from the tcl/tk library.
btw pd was running slow due to the patch I was testing not the wish85 process.
sorry for the misinformation...
