In task manager there is an Image Name "System" without an .exe that I have never seen before. The user name is system and the memory usage is very small but keeps changing. Right now it is only 96K.

What is this and where did it come from? It is not affected by stop process. It just sits there.

I have always had that show in my TaskManager and I believe it needs to be there and is nothing to be concerned about
