What is running on my computer? [was: Kathleen]

Since several days I had loads of windows updates tonight with another 25, all presumably in preparation for the coming of ten windows, however, I have now circle next to my cursor one turning constantly, I opened the Task Manager to see what is running, there is my CCleaner and GWX. EXE, the latter I don't know what it is, I would like to know what it is, I can remove it or should I remove it and if I do how to do this.

GWX.exe is'Gand Windows X (ten)' application.

When you say Ccleaner and GWX.exe are running, how much the CPU usage they show them?  In the Task Manager, see the "Processes" tab, not on the 'Applications' tab and don't forget to click on the button to "Show processes from all users" (you may need to respond to a UAC prompt).

And why is Ccleaner active anyway?

Open Ccleaner, click on 'Settings' and uncheck the box for "Run Ccleaner when the computer starts."  If I were you, I would also uncheck to automatically check for updates.  You only need to run Ccleaner every now and then.  And when you do, use ONLY the "Cleaner" option NEVER the option 'Registry '.

Notwithstanding the above paragraph, if Ccleaner is started and not doing anything, it should not be of any use of the CPU.

If you don't want to upgrade to Windows 10, you can uninstall Windows Update KB3035583 and then 'hide it. "  This will remove GWX.exe from your computer.  See http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_install/can-i-outright-not-download-windows-10/c93316f3-6466-416d-92f7-a4141aed9ef5
