    Hi

    Can someone help me plz..
    Just want to know when we press Ctrl+Alt+Del..
    Windows Task Manager opens.. so under Processes...
    We see couples of exe's running.. well more then 25..
    All all of then take some mem..

    So my question is
    How you know which one do what???
    eg. (svchost.exe, Isass.exe, csrss.exe)?
    Is there any web site I can look up?
    Can we stop any Precess to free some mem??

    Thanks in adv....

    www.microsoft.com knowledge base should have a lot of info about the common processes...there's been a lot of threads about svghost.exe. just search around.

    be careful what processes you end though...
