hi, i was wondering where i could find out what the programs are running in task manager to see if i need them or not. Here is what is running now so you can see for yourself and if anyone could help.

msmsgs.exe
taskmgr.exe
kazaa.exe
sllights.exe
ATRACK.EXE
WZQKPICK.EXE
CTFMON.EXE
NAVAPW32.EXE
IAMAPP.EXE
NISSERV.EXE
DPPS2.EXE
SYMPROXYSVC.EXE
ATIPTAXX.EXE
NOPDB.EXE
SLSERV.EXE
PCTSPK.EXE
NPRTOECT.EXE
NISUM.EXE
NAVAPSVC.EXE
MDM.EXE
ALG.EXE
LSASS.EXE
CRSS.EXE
SMSS.EXE

I PROBABLY DIDNT NEED TO TELL YOU ALL OF THEM, BUT IT WOULD BE GOOD TO KNOW WHAT THEY WERE JUST TO MAKE SURE WHAT IS RUNNING ON MY SYSTEM

THANKS IF YOU CAN HELP, OR KNOW WHERE TO FIND INFO ABOUT THEM FROM.

JON.
