The list of programs are: 







I understand several are the names of important window files, however all the other programs allow me to locate the file location. Furthermore, unlike all the other files in my Window Task Manager, these are the only ones without descriptions. I've Googled them all, and cannot find a sure answer.

Hi Apdo :)

I imagine that you are running Windows 7, right? In order to be able to use the Open file location option for some processes, you need to click on the Show processes from all users button in the Task Manager before. This will allow you to open their file location in Windows Explorer.

From a quick Google search, I can see that all these processes are legitimate. Of course, there may be malware using the same processes name but I doubt. The only suspicious one is WDC.exe, but if it's related to an ASUS program (like one of your other process is), then it's legit :)
