Task List Programs
We often come across problems caused primarily by programs running in the background, programs which in most cases are started automatically when Windows boots up. 65% of problems we solve are caused by such programs. Sometimes these programs are useful and need to be there; quite often, however, they are not needed, and in too many cases they cause severe problems, and this includes some Microsoft "Services".
The pages below are from our in-house database and provide guidance on the usefulness or not of these programs and services, and removal procedures when recommended.
In Windows 95/98/ME you can bring up the Task List by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del. In Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003 you bring up the Task List by right-clicking on the Task Bar and choosing "Task Manager".
