    Non-Microsoft programs startup "alert"

    How can I find out which process or program is active

    Thanks Pat, It'll take some time to use this tool, Sysinternals is pretty deep. Looks like I'll be able to learn just about anything I want concerning my O/S and what it's "really" doing. I can't seem to unzip it though. Am I doing something wrong there? (The components are available right...

    How can I find out which process or program is active

    What is the <lock> icon in the Windows file-manager, and how do I get rid of it?

    Hi Everybody, I have something new happening in my Windows 7. Three of the directories <Data> <MSOCache> and <Program Data> have tiny 'lock' icons attached to the top of the tree. I'm guessing these mean that I can not open any of the files. So far, it has affected all of the PDF manual...
