You know when we have a problem and the lovley Esconder and all you other members come to the rescue, You know we have to run that diagnostics thing and Esconder says kill these.And he list various things that are in the start up menu.
How do you know what to kill, my pc starting up quite slowly at the moment and i just wanted to know so i dont keep bothering plp on here, if i knew what not to kill i could kill the rest u know what i mean.

Thanks in advance :hug:

I think you (or 'they') mean terminate certain programs in the task manager.
You get there by right clicking the task bar and going to task manager. Then you go to processes.

Yer but what i meanis like which ones do u know to disable because yuo dont wanna disable something you need.
Esconder usually tells me when i run the diagonstics whihcc ones to shut down, but i dont wanna have to keep asking him which ones so is there like a set list of ones which u musnt shut down otherwise it will effect ur system

I don't know about that, you'll have to ask the tech god (or godess?) yourself. :D

Generally the processes differ from user to user and PC to PC obviously. It all depends on tasks solved on PC. But a clean PC must surely have those:


explorer.exe
svchost.exe
cthmon.exe
svchost.exe
rundll32.exe
wmiprvse.exe
iexplore.exe
opera.exe
taskmgr.exe
svchost.exe
rundll32.exe
svchost.exe
svchost.exe
svchost.exe
spoolsv.exe
lsass.exe
services.exe
winlogon.exe
csrss.exe
smss.exe
svchost.exe
svchost.exe
svchost.exe
svchost.exe
System
System Idle Proccess


You can also have those:

fmempro.exe - FreeMem Professional
WINCMD32.EXE - Windows Commander (or Totalcmd - Total Commander)
thebat.exe - The Bat E-mail Client
qip.exe - QIP Messenger
sqlagent.exe - SQL Server Agent
avp.exe - Kaspersky Antivirus
msdtc.exe - MS Distributed transactions coordinator (SQL related)
AdskScSrv.exe - AutoCAD
klnagent.exe - Kaspersky Antivirus
klnacserver.exe - Kaspersky Antivirus
sqlmangr.exe - SQL Server Manager
AcroTray.exe - Adobe Acrobat (reader)
DkService.exe - Diskeeper
TRAI5VCS.EXE - TRAI Intel Dual-core CPU support service
klserver.exe - Kaspersky Antivirus
sqlservr.exe - SQL Server


N.B.: Most processes having random letter/digit combinations in names are definitely viruses/malware!

You should make a thread with this info and make it a sticky. ;)
It's very helpful.
