Hi "folks", I'm a newby to this forum which was suggested by another forum.
Anyway, here's my question... I ran a program called 'decrapifier' which removed some junk. I then ran my Windows Task Manager and found (Under 'processes') 59 processes. A lot of these are unknowns to me and was wondering if anyone out there has a suggestion where I can go to find answers to exactly what these are and if they are safe to remove or necessary. Some of the following are under my user name and not under system:viz;
TscHelp.exe
CLI.exe
CPSHelpRunner.exe
ImApp.exe
soffice.bin
soffice.exe

...etc.,etc.

Thanks in advance,
Yepytzme

Hi Yepytzme.

Welcome to BleepingComputer.  :thumbsup:

Check out the Tabs at the top of each page, especially the Startup List and File Database. A good program to easily stop startup programs so that you can see if you need them or not is WINPATROL.

Cheers.

CPSHelpRunner.exe => Roxio software.
ImApp.exe => Incredimail.
soffice.bin => Open office.
soffice.exe => Open office.

And a B~I~G thank you to nigglesnush85 and rowal5555. Appreciate your input which otherwise would probably have created a teeny bit of a problem with those programs.
Nice to know there are those who do care...thanks again.

Yepytzme :thumbsup:
