When I pull up my Windows Task Manager and click the Processes tab there are always about 50 items running in there. I don't remember this in the past. I have Win XP home. Most are .exe files.

Is this normal? If not how do I get rid of them?

Any help or guidance will be appreciated.

Thanks

Would you mind posting a screen shot of them?

Very good!!

I was able to see your image, and the best thing I can tell you, is that you need to post a HJT log in the HJT forum. You do have a few things on there that need to be taken care of.

Download the latest version of HijackThis (HJT), from here.

Put HijackThis in a Permanent folder:
Click My Computer / C: / File / New / Folder / name the folder; HijackThis
Put HijackThis.exe, in this folder.
This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Read the pinned post in the HJT forum, here
Follow the directions, EXACTLY! This is important!

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum here. Do not, fix anything, yet.
