Identify and Kill Unwanted Processes Running on your Computer

by Simrandeep Singh on March 10, 2009

A lot of processes keep running in task manager. A normal user don’t know which of them are required and which are not. Unwanted processes slow down your computer by consuming CPU memory. To kill these unwanted processes you must be aware of these processes otherwise you can kill an essential system process which will crash your computer. Here is an online tool which contain data base of such running processes.

exeLibrary is a database of executable programs. It has information about a large number of executable programs. If you look at your task manager, you can see a number of running processes. You can find information about each process from exeLibrary and then you can easily decide whether to remove it or not.

When I checked exeLibrary for an executable program called as isass.exe, I came to know that it is very dangerous application which logs every key you press. It may lead to identity theft. This process can be removed from the task manager.

You can check for more such processes in exeLibrary and keep your computer running faster and secure.

:-o Oh.. how dangerous this is. I always used to check my processes before having installed the service pack 2 for windows xp. I used to delete as many unwanted processes as possible to save memory and cpu power to optimize my performance.

I will certainly note this dangerous program and remove it if it is present. Thanks for sharing this post.
