Identify The Windows XP Processes That Are Suspicious

In Tips N Tricks, Windows XP on September 15, 2006 at 2:07 pm

Uniblue has compiled a list of processes that could be a security risk to your computer or that could be slowing down your machine.

They have a comprehensive list of the processes and when you click on the hyperlink it takes you to an explanation page where it details about the processes. Even though it’s laborious, it’s a pretty handy tool to figure out what’s going on with your machine.

You can navigate to the list by clicking here.

For those of you whom are not so computer savvy…so, how do you find out about the running processes on your machine? Pretty simple.

  • Right click on your Windows XP Task Bar and select “Task Manager” from the menu options. Once into the Task Manager window choose the “Processes” tab.
  • Press “Ctrl + Alt + Delete” (of course, without the + key) keys at the same time and click on the “Task Manager” button. Once into the Task Manager window choose the “Processes” tab.
