I'm currently doing a yearly maintenance for my pc.
I saw quite a few process in my task manager but i'm not sure which i should end the process.
i'm afraid it might cause problem to my pc if i accidentally close it.

How do i post my task manager process here?

Ending processes isn't really the best "maintenance" you could do, I think...

How about removing unneeded programs? Also, defrag and check your C: drive for errors.

To find out if a process is necessary for your computer, look up the filename on Google. BleepingComputer also has a Startup List and File Database.

Most anti-virus and anti-spyware applications will scan the running processes as part of their system scan.

AutoRuns will show you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login. Then you can decide whether or not you need them. If you are unsure you can always post back here with specific questions on an item.
