||Some of these tasks/processes
are not from the Task Manager or the Close Program window (CTRL+ALT+DEL) but
a list of startup applications, although you will find some of them listed via
Pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL identifies programs that are currently running - not necessarily
at startup. For a list of tasks/processes you should try PC
Integrity Scanner or the list at AnswersThatWork.
Therefore, before ending a task/process via CTRL+ALT+DEL just because it has
an "X" recommendation,
please check whether it's in MSCONFIG or the registry first. An example would be "svchost.exe" -
which doesn't appear in either under normal conditions but does via CTRL+ALT+DEL.
If in doubt, don't do anything.
