Hi all,can any one explain why in task manager shows i have 82 processes but when i run adaware the number of processes is less

  SANTOS7 14:03 06 Feb 2006

Are you sure its 82, normal running processes should be half that or thereabouts...

Hi santos,yes i have 82 processes runing,why is this so high ? do i have a problem here

  SANTOS7 14:10 06 Feb 2006

In perspective i have 39 running and i have alsorts going on.

Why is mine so high then,could it have double for some reason you say yours is 39 x2 =78 not far of mine if you double yours

Do the entries look duplicated, you may have entries related to spy/malware.......

Have you got the box "show processes from all users" ticked? This could make it a little higher but still 82 is very high!

i have run adaware,spybot,aol spyware & microsoft nothing came up as spyware,because adaware shows that i have 79 procssese running i presume that it might not be detected, how can i be sure that 4 processes are not spyware

Good spot rômanab maybe try that first..

Be interested to know how your PC runs that amount of processes (if true) will be a massive drain on resourses.....
