I am using version 3.1 of the profiler, and i was profiling outlook.exe. I noticed in the taskmanager that outlook.exe process had increased file i/o , specifically disk writes. Averaging 1 write operation a second.
Now, is it possible that this is caused by the profiler running ? Or, if the profiler was to cause this i/o, it would appear under the profiler process in task manager?

When the real-time tracker is enabled, the profiled process will report the status to the profiler once per second (even if no allocations have been performed). The status is reported through a pipe, and it will be counted as a file I/O write. If you disable the real-time tracker the profiler, should not cause any I/O operations while the profiled application is idle.
