In the Windows Task Manager, I have 76 processes running. What are they all? Can I reduce/close them?

In the Windows Task Manager, I have 76 processes running. What are they all? Can I reduce/close them?

I am only a very lightweight browser and the user of the social network. I do not use my PC for something else.

It is average for a system Windows does not.

Windows is broken down into different components so they can be executed in parallel to improve performance.

Their closure will cause your computer to malfunction and eventually fails.

Run process Explorer to give you a description of each process and information on the services that are running in each svchost process.

  • CS5-> CS6 upgrade hangs, block the windows Task Manager, does nothing else

    Got the CS6 Design Standard update, hoping to upgrade from CS5 Design Premium. Could it be the problem? I don't have all the added bonus and this stuff is ridiculously expensive.

    In any case, I put the disc, nothing happens. I run the set - up.exe, the disc spins, then nothing continues to happen. I watched it for up to 5 minutes and nothing.

    Set - up.exe isn't in Applications, but it's in the process in windows Task Manager. However, there is no real activity at all. When I try to end the process, WTM crashes. I have to every hard reboot or eject the disc in order to recover.

    What gives? I can post PDApp.log if need be, but I don't know how much help it will be.

    W7 Pro 64-bit

    So it turns out that it was the reader. I installed an internal DVD SATA drive and it ran the update without fault. Just in case someone else stumbles across this post with a similar problem, make sure that you do not install the update of an external USB DVD drive, specifically a Samsung SE-S084. It won't work.

    Thanks for the help guys!

  • The window Task Manager users send a message to users

    Can someone help me install send a message to the user on Windows 2008rs on Windows Task Manager user...

    Well, that's the case I click with the right button on the taskbar click Start Task Manager, click user and do a right click on a user, click send a message, I type a message and click OK and it says (your message to the user Paul (sessionid = 1) could be sent. Access is denied. Can someone please help :).


    The error that you normally get is due to a lack of Message special access permission rights. You can learn more about this here. You will notice in the section Additional Considerations that he mentions this authorization. You can manage permissions on a per connection basis in Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration. The permissions are listed on the Security tab in the connection Properties dialog box.

    Could check you the permission level and see if that solves it.

When I did so all of a sudden got a lot of poping up tabs, then a new window pop Firefox on with a lot of poping up tabs and then a new window. i've got up to 19 poping windows with lots of tabs.
