Preferred Solution: There are strange processes in the task manager

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Not sure here but you may have a virus. Have you tried running a virus scan?

Hi. I have been reading through some of the tutorials on this site and was looking at the Startup Programs Database. I was looking in my Task Manager at processes running and noticed 3 entries that seem a little odd in that they are the only 3 that do not list a User Name or Description for the process. I am not sure whether these are OK processes or not so I would appreciate if someone can take a look and let me know. The processes I am concerned about are csrss.exe, winlogon.exe and rundll32.exe. Note that there is a 2nd process running called rundll32.exe with the Description 'Windows host process (Rundll32)
Please find attached a screenshot of my Task manager showing the processes in question.
Thanks
Steve

A:Strange processes in Task Manager?

Hello Stephen W,Judging by your recently resolved HiJack This thread, I take it you have Windows XP installed.The files in question are legitimate. From the File Database on BC plus supplements from my knowledge:csrss.exe is from Service Pack 2 for Windows XPhttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/filedb/csrss.exe-737.htmlwinlogon.exe also from Service pack 2 for Windows XP is what allows users to log in to the OS etc. It must stay running.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/filedb/win...n.exe-3031.htmlrundll32.exe Again from SP2, this program allows a DLL file to run as an application. There are many such files that run this way. If rundll32.exe doesn't run, these programs won't either.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/filedb/run...2.exe-2593.htmlYou can also read more about this file from here: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vis...-is-it-running/and from the MS site here: http://windowsxp.mvps.org/rundll32.htmOrange Blossom

I will open a program, close it, and then when i try to open it again a message appears saying that an existance of it is still running. When i look at my processes i see that it is in fact But when i try to "end Process" it does not close. The warning pops up, i say yes, and yet it does nothing. I can not seem to close these programs. And this causes shuting down to take up to 15-20 min unless i force a shut down. The problem has occured with Opera.exe CCAPP.exe outlook.exe and maybe more. Please help thanks!

Running very slow, when I look at the processes on the Task Manager there are loads of them even when I am not running the programs etc. Processes like ITunes helper.exe ,
ccsetmgr.exe , BTHelpnotifier.exe. IPodservice.exe. Does this mean these are running constantly? can I stop the process? what will happen when I want to use ITunes next if I stop the process. How can I find a list of processes I shouldnt stop? Really appreciate some help please.
 

A:Task Manager Processes

OK,

Most processes are important for 1 reason or another
A lot of them are part of Windows

IPodservice.exe controls transfering between your ipod and your computer
ITunes helper.exe helps itunes load faster and launches itunes when you plug in your ipod
If you have an ipod or use itune those 2 processes are important

BTHelpnotifier.exe is a part of BT Broadband Internet Service
ccsetmgr.exe is a part of Norton Antivirus or Norton Internet Security

Most of the processes you shouldn't stop but you can google the name of the process and usually some website will tell you what it does and if its important

But then next time you restart they'll all be back so it would be a big hassle

If your computer is slow then you might want to get more ram or get an ad-ware/spyware program if you don't already have 1

Hope this helps,
Ryan

HI, Go to this site and have a read as he has itemized all the services in XP:-

Someone will look at your list later on I don't now enough. You did not state what problem you have. If you do get a lot of spyware or a virus it does cause physical signs on your computer such as slow startup etc. You never mentioned any signs at all and you have tested to see if you have spy ware so why are you worried about it.

One using 74,000 K and the other using 20,000 K. I only have one IE tab opened.
Also listed is explorer.exe with 7,300 K in use.

I've run scans with Malwarebites and Ad Aware. Also have McAfee running.

Why do processes for programs (like winword, firefox) stay in the processes list even after I have exited the programs? Sometimes the amount of memory used is small, other times it is large, Firefox particularly refuses to run or runs badly until I have manually ended the process, but the others just stay there eating up memory.

Hi,

My computer has been running really slowly lately, mostly online. I'm trying to figure out if it is my computer or our cable modem connection.

How can I tell if it is my modem connection? Is there a way to run a diagnostic on it?

I have opened task manager and have 36 processes running. This seems high and leads me to believe it could be using valuable memory that my online games wants to use.

Any suggestions?

Hello, my computer has been acting a bit slow recently for no apparent reason. I haven't had any new software installations or added anything else new. What i have noticed is that when i open up my task manager via ctrl+alt+del and look at the processes tab, there are a lot of process that are running. Is there any way i can shut down some of the unnecessary ones and get rid of them? Also when i look at the startup processes under "msconfig", there are a few of them that are checked. Would it be safe to uncheck some of them and would that make my computer start up faster?

Yes, you can remove some proccesses, but be careful. Only do it if you know what it is, and know that it is not a important proccess. If you are unsure about what a proccess is, google it. Somewhere should give you the proccess information and wheather or not you can terminate it.

You can also stop some start-up programs, which will make it start up faster. Don't change any of Windows componates, and again, only uncheck it, if you know what it is, again, google it for info.

You may also want to check for spyware/viruses. Follow the steps in my sig.

Anyone suggest a tool that will let me see what exactly is running in the background. In the task manager/processes there a "Host Process for Windows" going on thats using approx 107,212K of memory. Image name is Svchost.exe, would this be the Superfetch at work here ?

Also I seem to have 68 processes (which I think could be reduced)going on in total, cpu usage when idle is at 1% and physical memory at 58 %.
Are these figures near normal for the above specs ?
The computer does'nt seem any slower.

A:Task manager/Processes

Hi Lazarus,

While your in Task Manager, right click on the process and click Go to Service(s). This will take you inside of the Services tab where the responsible items are highlighted for your Svchost.exe process. This will tell you what they are.

I am new on this website and I hope it is something that can help me since I get anxiety attacks when I can't fix a problem. :3-nuts. So hello, out there.

I have a long list of processes constantly running in the task manager window and I am wondering if they are all eating up ram. When I use my old graphics program, microsoft picture it!, I have to change the display settings to the lowest and it still hangs after a while. It's even hard to shut it down at that point. BTW, what is "hijack this log" that I see. I thought it might pertain to what I am asking about---but I dont understand what anyone is asking. (I am only mildly computer literate):confused:

Thanks. Linda

A:task manager processes

I typically have 43 running processes, so specific numbers are relative...said number of processes are without any applications running...

whilst in the task manager, choose the performance tab and observe cpu usage, PageFile usage, Physical Memory to make a judgement as to whether or not you have RAM (memory) issues...as a note, IMHO 1GB of ram is pretty much necessary for a modern day machine running XP and other apps.

HijackThis is a nice little proggie that lists out all running processes (with their paths) and also lets you know what is started up with your machine among other little goodies...

if you really think you have some issues, download it, use it and choose to save a log, and copy and past the log into a post in the appropriate part of this forum

When I look in the Processes section of Task Manager I see a long list of only two of which are not tagged with my user name. Three things;

1. Is this list the same as the list of programs in the Uninstall facility within Control panel?

2. Does the term, "Process, "in this context have the same meaning as the term, "Program?"

3. How can I best decide which Processes I can close without affecting the OS?​
 

A:Task Manager - Processes

1. No

2. sometimes, a program running can be a process, but a process is not always a program.

3. Google search the "image name" to help you discover what it is.

4. not wise to terminate process unless you know what you are doing

in task manager click "view" and then "select columns", then tick only the following

PID
User Name
CPU usage
Memory-private working set
Image path name
command line
Description

hit OK

I use image path name to see where the process is originating from, this gives an indication if it is a installed program or not, depending on what directory it starts from, ie Program files directory.

Usually anything running from the Windows or Windows/system32 folder is a windows process, but not always, some malware and nasties run from these folders also, that is why you can Google the "image path name" to help you learn more.

A:Many processes in Task Manager have *32 at the end?

Hi belthagor On Windows 64-bit, processes that have *32 appended at the end means that they are 32-bit processes. This is to differentiate 64-bit and 32-bit processes. This doesn't mean that these processes are malicious at all. Also from a quick look, I can see that all the processes currently running on your system are also legitimate.

Who...told you to run that tool?  How can that be, this is your first post at this website.
 
The tool you linked to...is for attempting to neutralize malware.
 
Please check your spelling of the processes listed in Task Manager.
 
Iexplore.exe is the valid IE process...each time a window/tab is opened, another process begins, with 1 always being present in Windows.
 
Iexplorer.exe is malware and should be treated as such.

Hello,

I have the same OS and service pack and I have 61 running. What makes you think there is a problem? Not all OS's and machines are created equal. Because someone has 32 does not mean your machine works with only 32. Unless you see performance issues or erratic behavior, I would not be overly concerned.

I looked up all the ones I didn't already know about on processlibrary.com and it looks like everything there is necessary. One thing though, is that YT8SDK or YTBSDK? If it is the latter then it is part of Norton Antivirus, but it looks like you have AVG installed..you shouldn't use both.

Hey all,

I have recently been cleaning up my PC to improve its' abilities. I found that I had a number of unnecessary process occurring, slowing me down. (Thanks Google for the info. on what's what!)

BUT....

I found a strange reoccurrence of the process "svchost.exe"
1) local service
2) system
3) network service
4) system
5) network service
6) system

I found nothing about these thus far in my searching. The closet theory I have is that they have to do with the Wireless Network I have setup. Maybe each computer has it's own process on the host computer (mine).

Well, if anyone can give some of their know-how to this it would be greatly appreciated. Something tells me it is really nothing to worry about and I should just let it be.

-Thanks all, have a joyous day.

after some extensive scans with Prevx & Microsoft security essentials They've come back with the all clear.

However after some virus troubles, there are some processes left I'm rather suspicious of. I've done checks on them with free online scanners but I'm still left unsure.

processes are;
* csrss.exe
* nvvsvc.exe
* winmapin.exe
* winlogin.exe

what makes me slightly suspicious of them is none of them will let me open their file locations, nor view properties all other processes will but none of them are using cpu and none of them are running double instances.

Any suggestions wouldn't mind viewing a healthy windows 7 task manager processes, will look for more info

Watch this post and refresh. I will post as I find out.

Csrss.exe file description

Description: Client Server Runtime Process

Productname: NVIDIA Driver Helper Service, Version 175.76

The last 2 look like legit windows .exe.

Is it winlogon or winlogin?

so far these are ok

I have files under the Processes tab of Task Manager that I think might be causing me problems or at the very least don't need to be there. I was hoping that I might get some ideas on what programs do the best as far as managing processes. I want to be able to keep these processes from running and be able to remove them if needed. Shareware or commercial software doesn't matter as long as it does the job. See my profile for system info. Thanks for your help.

I am wondering if someone can take a look at this task manager and let me know if there are some things that are slowing me down that are not necessary. (The blank spots under User Name have been erased 'cause it's a name.)

Hopefully, there will be a successful screen shot of my "Processes" list here. I seem to be running a lot of things (41 in this shot) and this new computer is not quite the zippy little thing (opening programs, etc.) that I thought it would be.

heyal,

i need some help

firefox which has been depleting its speed and i always look in my task manager to see what processes are running so i can speed things up or try and figure out the cause.

well i just looked a few minutes ago and found this new process called ielowutil.exe*32 internet low-mic utility tool ok maybe there can be one but its never been there before and now there is not only one but 21 instances of this process!

i read up and its used by internet explorer private mode but i don't use internet explorer so i haven't opened it up in a very long time so there is actually no need for this process to be opened.

so can anyone tell me why and what to do for this issue?

i appreciate any and all help that yal can offer Very Happy

until then i'm ending the processes....

I was just curious how many should be there that seem to be the same by all users. Mine has 4 users it seems, Network-System-Local-Owner. Here is an example when I show processes from all users there are 12 svchost.exe processes all described as Host Process for Windows. 3 for Network, 6 for System, 3 Local and 3 owner. Why so many?

I have 12 on my Vista virtual machine - 6 for System, 3 for Network, and 3 for Local.To find out what's running beneath them, right click on each one and select "Go to services" - and it'll highlight the services that are running.For a more detailed look at them, you can hover your mouse over the process when using this free program: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...ssExplorer.mspx

hi guys,
I checked my task manager, I have like 12 svchost.exe running and one of them is hogging memory. They exist since I format my harddrive last week so I don't think infections have anything to do with them. Anyways I still run a full scan with avg and no suspicious result return. I remember I used to have only 5 svchost.exe running.
Can I remove disable some of them? How should I do that?

And I've got a wininit.exe which I have never seen before. It says this is a windows start-up application. Should I keep it?


Thanks.

A:Unwanted task manager processes

Each svchost.exe is running a Windows service. Some services are vital and disabling them could cripple your computer. Others could be safely disabled. This previous Forum thread discusses svchost.exe as well as this Microsoft article

Why do I have so many SVCHost.exe processes?

What is svchost.exe?

Wininit.exe (Windows Initialize) is a core system process that originated in Windows XP and has been passed down to Windows 7. The file was created to allow uninstallers to run and process commands stored in the file WinInit.ini. This allows programs to take action while the computer is still booting up. In Windows 7 it primarily acts as a launcher for the majority of the background applications that are always running. I'd leave it alone.

Ipoint.exe installs with Microsoft's Intellipoint software for their Intellimouse series of mice. This Intellipoint software can be safely removed via the "Add/Remove Programs" icon in the Control Panel, because most of the standard Intellipoint features have been integrated into the Windows 98/me/XP/2000 operating systems.

A:Suspicious processes in task manager...

Hi Monkey_O

Actually, the log isn't that bad.
The only item I'd recommend removing would be:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [BCNT] C:\PROGRA~1\AWS\WEATHE~1\BCNT.EXE

Which seems to be related to WeatherBug, which is adware.

ALCXMNTR.EXE is a dodgy entry which you can disable from Startup.

It's Realtek AC97 Audio - Event Monitor. It's a "Spyware" type file used surreptitiously monitor one's actions.
It is not a sinister one, like remote control programs, but it is being used by Realtek to gather data about customers.

Hello,

As the title says I have over 120 processes running on task manager. And the number grows over time. I used to normally run 28 and now im just worried. Could it be a virus? The names of the processes that weren't there before don't show results when i look them up on the Process Library or google. I'll list a few of them: oxguof.exe, oxvend.exe, toqmm.exe, winhpxf.exe. Most of them start with win as the first three letters of they're name
And my user profile is the one running all these processes, when i log into another user profile on my windows XP OS i don't see it running so many processes. Could deleting my user profile and creating a new one solve the problem? Im already downloading an anti-Virus to scan my system (avast)

Well I hope I make it out of this in one piece

Task manager performance tab says that my CPU is 100% overloaded. But when I open 'processes' tab and rank the processes by CPU usage, the percents don't add to 100%. For god's sake, they don't even add to 20%. On the other hand, in XP they always add to hundred percent.

Jeez, Windows 7 is such a downgrade from XP

I can't see the process in task manager because it seems to close as soon as I'm out of full-screen gaming. Is there anyway to record processes occuring during gaming that I can then view to identify the problem?

Hello,
 
I recently went into task manager to shut down some applications that were misbehaving when I noticed a csrss.exe process that was the only one appearing to be run by the system, and when I looked at a list of processes for all users, csrss.exe shows up twice, with one at about 1MB and the other around 5MB. When I right click and try to open the file location, nothing happens for either of them, but will work for any other process.
 
I googled this, and it is a sever runtime process, but if I have two of them it is likely to be a virus. I ran a full system scan with Norton, but it didn't find anything besides tracking cookies. I then restarted my computer, and found that both processes were still there.
 
Does anyone knows about how I could go about fixing this, or if it is just a normal thing?
 
Thanks

FWIW:  Two seems to be the standard number for this process when using Task Manager.  If you reflect two, you have no problem.

Hi,
Got 2 questions.

1)I have 68 to 71 processes going in Task Manager.
I know that has GOT to be too many. How do I know which processes to end? Obviously you don't want to shut down the ones that say "SYSYTEM" beside it. Right?

I have Windows Vista. (I love it. Have had NO problems) Let me know if you need to know anything else.

2)I'm afraid to clean my computer myself and it needs it. I have an air compressor but I don't know how hard of an air stream it produces and I don't know where to blow and where not to.
How trustworthy are the "GEEKS" at Best Buy? Should I trust the GEEKS to clean my computer? My computer is my baby and I don't know who to trust.

Thanks. Take care.

Forgive me for what all you knowledgable people will probably think is a dumb question. But when I'm not doing anything on my computer but opening my browser and have just booted up, do I really Need all these 35 Running Processes shown in my Task Manager? (I'm using XP Home)

And why are there numerous duplicates of the same things with different "numeric values", please?

Can I eliminate any of those and speed up my system in general? (my boyfriend added 512Meg of RAM to the existing 256Meg, which helps...but would also please like to know about this)

If I can eliminate them from running/starting in the background when booting up, just how do I do that, please?

Thank you
 

A:Do I really need all these Running Processes in Task Manager?

The two screen shots you showed have CPU usage at 6% and 10%, so those processes at that time aren't slowing you. But you are right that they can, and in particular starting unnecessary processes can increase your boot time.

First look in the Startup folder (Start - All Programs - Startup). If there is anything there that you don't want running all the time, just delete it (they are just shortcuts in there) from the folder. For example, one of mine is Microsoft Office; it initializes Word, Excel, etc. so that they launch quicker. I use Excel all the time so I keep it there; if I seldom used Office, I would delete it from Startup and save the boot time.

Second, Start - Run - msconfig - OK. Look at the Startup tab. Anything you don't want running, just remove the checkmark and remember to hit Apply before getting out. Be careful, and don't remove too many at a time, because you can make your system unstable or worse. I seldom remove anything until I've figured out what it is related to.

As an example, two that I have removed the check marks from are iTunesHelper and qttask because I only use iTunes and Quick Time once a week if that often, so no sense in having them there all the time.

The first time you boot after removing any of these you will get a scary looking message reminding you that you changed your system. Just tell it you don't want to see the message again, and forget it.

Whenever I bring up the Windows Task Manager (by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del), I find that there are way TOO many processes running. My computer is brand spanking new and it is already freezing to the point that nothing functions and I have to power if off manually. I don't like doing that, I think I'm damaging it further. I am attaching 3 screenshots of the Task Manager, yeah that's how many processes are open. Could anyone please have a look at it and tell me which of the processes are unnecessary, what they are and how can I prevent them from starting up whenever I switch on my computer. I am new to windows 8 and do not want to damage anything.

A:Too many svchost.exe in Task Manager (Processes)

I usually have seven or eight running...depends on what you have installed that has thrown in an updater or scanner, if we are talking legit processes.

Take a look at browser add-ons and toolbars you have installed.

I have a strange issue. I have a couple of processes that do not show in task manager at all. The strange part is they do on my other PC's.

If I start Word I don't see word.exe if I start some games I don't see their *.exe's I find it to be strange that htings aren't being listed in here. Uninstall and reinstall of offending softwares is not changing anything.

Mind you Process manager is not empty it has a fair amount going on... just some never show up.

Also no rhyme or reason as far as application opening times I can start up word first and it not show up but then start up internet explorer and see the iexplore.exe.

People tell me that 106 processes means something is wrong. Only two or three show numbers (low numbers) under the column "CPU". I have MANY applications installed in my system.

Does 106 processes still mean there's a problem even if I have MANY applications? The system doesn't run slow; it only starts up slow.

I use a SONY VAIO AR250G with XP SP2.

I don't know what it is but this has been an ongoing problem for me with win7 x64 when I shut down an application or one crashes the program seems to close but is still running in task manager. For instance firefox does this all the time the current release and priors, I'll close it and then reopen it only to tell me that firefox is already running! So you open task manager and attempt to kill the process and you get nothing. What is causing this and is there a fix? It's driving me nuts!

Not sure what is causing it for you, but I prefer to use Process Explorer Process Explorer instead of windows task manager. It seems to do better with killing them.

I recently had to reinstall WinXP, everything is good there. But, now if I attempt to shut down processes in Task Manager (specifically those related to Norton SystemWorks), it will not allow it. It's always worked before.

Does anyone know a quick setting change to allow this again? thanks for any help.

My computer has slowed considerably lately, The task manager is showing usually about 55 or 60 processes happening at the same time, I don't know which to keep and which to delete(or how)some say network, of system network. But most just have my name, being the com. Administrator.
I know there's a way to stop these processes permanently and speed up my computer. I've defragmented and cleaned the hard drive, can you help me stop these background programs from running. Please help. thanks Alot

A:Task Manager shows 50-70 Processes. Too Much!? Help

Click Start
Click "Run"
Type "msconfig.exe"
Click the "Startup" tab
Check off the boxes of certain programs that look familiar to you that you don't want running during startup. Examples would be AIM, Itunes, etc.

Also, you can usually end all processes in the task manager that include your specific User Name. The only one you shouldn't end is explorer.exe (it's the program that displays your desktop)

If it says LOCAL SERVICE, NETWORK SERVICE, or SYSTEM next to it, Don't end it.

Finally, a computer usually does contain a lot of processes. My computer, right now, is running 61 processes. There are a lot more reasons for why your computer could be running slow besides the processes.

I can usually close unwanted system processes in task manager, no sweat. However, about four days ago, it hasnt allowed me to do it anymore. Instead, get a prompt that says Access is denied. :/
I am the administrator.

P.S. Windows XP home edition.

Also... I was wondering if there was a way to run the computer in a sort of "safe mode" way, and still let me listen to Windows media player and play WCIII, thats all i really do on this comp anyway.

Hi, I recently got a virus. I was trying to delete it, and my friend told me that when she deleted all the processes currently running in the task manager, it typically worked. Now the toolbar on the bottom won't show up; the desktop is blank; pretty much just a background. I tried restarting it, it didn't work. I have a Windows 7 laptop. I just need to know how to get back these processes and get my desktop back to normal...any help appreciated. :S Thanks!

A:Accidentally deleted all processes in task manager? HELP.

Ctrl-ALt-Del and select "task manager". Click "file" and then "new task". Type in "explorer.exe" without the quotes. That should get your desktop back. From there, do a system restore to a point before you deleted your running tasks. Run a virus scan with MSC and MalwareBytes Anti Malware.

I'm having a few problems with my computer, I'm running windows 8.1. 
It has slowed down significantly and it won't operate programs normally anymore, at the moment I've got two other programs open (word and pdf reader) on the tool bar but I can't open anything other than chrome, also the processes don't appear to be running in the task manager.
I also can't open the sidebar or app menu when I click on the windows icon in the bottom left corner.
I've been having a few problems with files not transferring or copying when I cut and paste or drag and drop so I ran a few programs, Adw cleaner, R kill and Junkware removal tool from this website but the computer seems worse now so I have no idea what to do.
Thanks in advance for any advice you have,

A:Processes on toolbar but not running in task manager

Did AdwCleaner and JRT remove anything?
 
Use the programs below to cleanup the computer and find and remove both adware and malware.
Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the
Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.
After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.
CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
 
Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here 
Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe to install the application (X's are the current version number).
Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.
Click the Settings tab at the top, and then in the left column, select Detections and Protections, and if not already checked place a checkmark in the selection box for Scan for rootkits.
Click the Scan tab at the top of the program window, select Threat Scan and click the Scan Now button.
If you receive a message that updates are available, click the Update Now button (the update will be downloaded, installed, and the scan will start).
The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
If potential threats are detected, ensure that Quarantine is selected as the Action for all the listed items, and click the Apply Actions button.
While still on the Scan tab, click the link for View detailed log, and in the window that opens click the Export button, select Text file (*.txt), and save the log to your Desktop.
The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can also be viewed by clicking the History tab and then selecting Application Logs.
Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
Click the button.
For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
Double click on the icon on your desktop.
Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
Click the Start button.
Accept any security warnings from your browser.
Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
When the scan completes, click List Threats
Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
Click the Back button.
Click the Finish button.

A:Windows Task Manager - Processes - Memory

There is a tutorial for increasing the performance of vista in the Vista Tutorials Section. That should make a difference...especially defragging your pc. Running that low on HDD space does hurt tho. I have experienced that. If you can remove data...it would be recommended. The "K" means thousands of bytes being used. For instance 100,000K actually means 100 Megabytes for memory being used. For a basic laptop of yours 3 GB of memory is acceptable and should run fine.

Sorry I am not great with links but like I said...in the Tutorials section..it will help you out.

Why Processes between - for any of the following svchost exe one of Why Certain Processes Shown Using Cpu When Opening Task Manager? them there are like five or six listed lsass exe csrss exe explorer exe System taskmgr exe this one I assume is because Task Manager is opening at that instant But it s Why Certain Processes Shown Using Cpu When Opening Task Manager? not all of them at the same time it varies and it s not every time and the varies as well Then they go back down to after half a second For example sometimes csrss exe is at for an instant other times lsass exe is at for an instant sometimes it s more than one doing it at the same time etc I think that s all the ones that seem to do this Is this normal and is just a result of opening Task Manager and the processes the do this are running for a split second because you re opening Task Manager Or is this indicative of another potential issue Also can someone actually test this on their XP SP Home system and see if the same thing happens Start with TM closed then open it and look If it happens too quick try using quot Print Screen quot immediately after you open TM and paste the image into Photoshop or something and see which ones are doing this if any It happens really fast Thanks

A:Why Certain Processes Shown Using Cpu When Opening Task Manager?

I have XP Pro and the same thing happens - some tasks show a high CPU usage for a couple of seconds when Task Manager is first opened. No idea why...

Whenever I bring up the Windows Task Manager (by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del), I find that there are far TOO many processes running and I think they may be responsible for my computer slowing down and sometimes freezing up. I am attaching a screenshot of the Task Manager. Could anyone please have a look at it and tell me which of the processes are unnecessary, what they are and how can I prevent them from starting up whenever I switch on my computer.

P.S: When I took this screenshot, the following programs were running Adobe PS ,Firefox and Avast! anti-virus were running and I was also connected to the internet. I have a LAN.

Thank you so much

I am in the midst of a several-day attempt to track down some strange behavior in Win7 Professional x64. My question today:

When I open Task Manager to the Processes tab, the entries are still sorted by the last selection I made (which in my case is User Name). I want to see the processes in the order in which they are activated (so I can leave it open and see what process loads right before the strange behavior begins), but I can't see any way to un-sort back to a chronological list.

click on any heading you want - it will sort them according to the heading of that column
if you click the view tab and then select columns you may then configure what columns are shown
