Default Programs running in my winxp

sponsored links

 
Hi,

I would like to know if there are any web pages that will show ppl the common names for trojan/virus programs that run in your computer.

What I mean is that when I hit ctrl + alt+ del in my winxp and turn to processes tab, I see lots of program that are running but I am not sure whether they are virus/trojan or some critical system files. I tried to scan my computer using norton and found nothing, but when I tried to scan again using norton online scan; it scans a virus.


Therefore, I wanna know whether there are some trojan/virus programs running in my computer or not.

Eg, Tpscrex.exe is running in my computer but I have no idea what it is.

Many thx

Well here is a website that can assist you on whats whats and running in Task Manager:

If you are unsure of what it is then end it - you will then notice if it is something that you need to be running
