Default The infamous "Processes" tab..

Now I dont know overly much about processes, I know what say 50% of them are, and I realise there are many crucial to boot and run windows.
But could someone please explain or suggest why I have so much stuff running clean from a boot up. (I've done all the msconfig etc etc, no programs are starting that shouldnt be. norton 2005 accounts for about 5 or so of the processes but there should surely be less. Thanks)

I realise a lot of bugs are disguised as svchost.exe because that stops them looking obscure, but norton finds no problems anywhere on any scan, but 6?! Almost any process I dont know in the list when trying to end it gives the usual error of when trying to close any important process (i.e critical ones)
Thanks for any help. (thats 43 in total by the way)

thats my point, I've run adaware and all of the norton 2005 utilities and my comp is completely clean. Straight from a reboot to 43 processes though.. I just don't understand it.

On another note I just ran adaware again and when doing so ( 9 pm GMT tonight ) NAV AP came up with an alert for Trojan.ByteVerify virus which had gotten into adaware. I'll see if that has any effect on processs numbers after next reboot.
(info on virus @ http://securityresponse.symantec.com...yteverify.html )

My virus log is:

Feature: Auto-Protect
Threat Name: Trojan.ByteVerify
Action Taken: Automatically deleted
Item Type: File
Target: N/A

Product Version: 11.0.9.16

Computer Name: XPWS
Details: Source: C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-aware 6\Cache\javainstaller\InstallerApplet.class




That should be all the info you'd need.
