task manager, what processes should be running.
As soon as I start the pc up the following are running, what are they ?
vsmon.exe, zlclient.exe, svchost.exe, iexplore.exe, ccApp.exe and there are more, these seem to be the largest mem users.

will vary from computer to computer.

In your case the items you list are:-

vsmon.exe, zlclient.exe - These are associated with Zone Alarm's firewall.


ccApp.exe - Norton anti-virus's auto checker and email checker


svchost.exe - is an essential operating system program, and should not be terminated.


iexplore.exe - this one is fairly obvious, it's Internet Explorer.

Thanks.
Is there a way of finding out what they are as I have loads more ?

for the task name in Google - you'll be swamped with answers.
