[RC5] DNETC is not backing down with CST needs processing power

Yes, the problem is that the process is run by another user.  I don't  
have access to the admin account to run DNETC as a service.

Thanks for the suggestion to run with fewer than the total number of  
processors.  I am now doing that and it seems to be working.  What I  
meant by backing off was "pausing" when the other process starts.
