The thing is I have only just noticed it.

These two notepad files in my task manager so I got curious as to why I could not remove them from the process list. So I downloaded Process Explorer to see whether it could delete it either.

Weird thing I saw immedialty, was that the 2 Notepad.exe's had no parent, they were just running... and the colour of the process was grey, which isn't on the "Change highlighted colour" thing.

I'll attach an image so you can see for yourself.
I would like to know a way to remove them, as I like to keep my process list clean, and this has confused me greatly.

I've noticed that they're are infact "Suspended" Only problem is, I cannot Un-suspend them. I do not think this to be the works of a virus, due to the fact I run weekly scans, and did a combofix only 9 days ago due to my PC getting destroyed by one peice of malware. Which has been sorted now. And I'm fairly good with computers, as I now work at a computer repair shop [Not PC World :o]

Bump?

I would really like to know how I can remove such processes. And after some reviewing, I had this problem before I actually did the combofix, so it's either not a virus, or a good one.
