Phitzy, a good friend keeps telling me to get a mac, less problems with viruses and other great things. Do you see any downside of being a mac user?

Some of these are not necessarily bad. Google svchost.exe for example.

Sandra, I LOVE my Mac. I have had it for 4 years and have had more memory installed to upgrade the Operating System.

The newer models have iSight (webcam) built in and are bluetooth enabled...along with alot of programs designed to further enable creativity.

If you're looking to upgrade, look at a Mac.

(man can I get a job for mac?)

Mitchy,

I have the following I am not sure about:

winlogon.exe-------------------------------------------------windows (instead of the WinLogon trojan)

Isass.exe------------------------------------------------------Local sec...........(instead of Possible Virus Read)

I am also not sure about the following which I don't think you mentioned:

Ism.exe---------------------------------------------------------Local ses......

IAANTmon.exe-----------------------------------------------Rain mon...

Roxwatch9.exe-----------------------------------------------Rox Smiffe...


Are any of these bad or malicious, and if so what do I do about them? I know I can end the process by clicking on it, but that doesn't get rid of them for good, does it? Thanks for posting this!

Read up if they're really that malicious. They may not be bad. Some of these things that get passed down are hoaxes (e.g., the email circulating about the process with the bear icon). Google the process name and see for yourself. If they're truly bad, that should have information on what to do with them.

I have winlogon.exe - username is blank and description is blank. No CPU usage. I'm running on Vista.

Do I need to do anything about it?

Mitchy, I don't have any of the bad processes running, although there are a grand total of 68 (!) running. But my main problem is that I'm trying to do a restore from a previous backup since one of my critical folders somehow disappeared, and I'm having problems with it. When I start the process and do a search, it shows the folder and all its files, even as of a week ago, but then it says to click on the box in front of the ones I want restored and there ARE NO BOXES! I try selecting "select all" but that doesn't change the "add" box to black, so it doesn't work. All that restores is the folders I already have. How can I get the boxes I'm supposed to check to show??? If you could help with that I'd be forever in your debt!

Oops, I DO have at least one of the bad processes running (services.exe) ... and you're right. Trying to "end process" just shuts my computer down temporarily and doesn't get rid of it. So, like Keith, what do I do now?

I've got a Mac! Much easier to use. Don't know about those "malicious programs" though.

SERVICES.EXE IS NOT NECESSARILY A VIRUS!!!!!!

It's an integral part of the operating system. Unfortunately, some malware disguises itself by giving it the same name. See http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/services.exe.html

DO NOT BLINDLY KILL PROCESSES JUST BECAUSE THEIR NAME IS ON THAT LIST!!!!!!

Good grief! I have 6 of those listed and one is listed 6 times! What do I do? (Maybe this is why I've been having so many computer problems lately?)
