I have noticed this issue as well.

It took me a long, long time to find out that the problem with a few
people's machines. I couldn't believe it when I removed P4EXP and it
solved the problem.

I'm curious what you mean by you had 20MB of log entries? Does P4EXP
spam the log file as well?

I completely agree. I always warn my users to ensure they do not install
it, but obviously some slip through the net.

If ever anyone complains about extreme PC slowdown after installing
Perforce, just look for P4EXP as the chief suspect. 

It's a nice idea in theory, but in practice causes more problems than it
solves.

Does anyone else feel that the P4EXP component should not be installed
by default?

I hate that thing!  

20MB of log file entries in 2 days caused by users "unknowingly"
installing that component.

Please Perforce change the p4wininst.exe to not install this component
by default!
