Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to bring up the Task Manager and click on the Processes tab.

go to start>run and type msconfig, click on the start up tab and this will show what programmes start at startup

To find out what programmes are running at the moment hit the Ctrl Alt Delete keys all at the same time and click on the Processes tab

OR, right click on the taskbar and select Task Manager :-)

Also, running slow is often caused by a virus.

click here . It will help you to identify the processes running on your computer. Within the lists are some viruses.

As Graham said above, right click the taskbar, click on Task Manager, then click on Processes.
