Task Manager Show Processes From All Users

Q: Task Manager Show Processes From All Users

Is there a way to make it so Task Manger will always Show Processes From All Users WITHOUT turning off UAC? It seems like every time I open task manager and want to check the running processes I have to click the button in the bottom left. With UAC off, it seems to always show all users, but with UAC off I can't use my gadgets..

Preferred Solution: Task Manager Show Processes From All Users

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What build are you running? Becase in mine, with UAC fully enabled, I can see a button that reads "Show processes from all users" in the "Processes" tab.

Windows 7 Ultimate N, 64bit, updated with latest Microsoft Patches. (updated from Vista over 1 year ago). Only recently stopped working.

Task Manager no longer shows all of the tabs, only the second tab that lists each single process and gives me the ability to End Process. No longer do I see the tab that shows the currently open applications or the tab that would show the system resources.

Also, no close on the dialog, I have to close using the right click Close Window on the task bar.

Not sure how to fix.Laura Madeira

Ordinarily, if all the Tabs ‘disappear, they can be regained by double-clicking on the outside border of the window.

Is there a way to force Task Manager to open with the "Show processes from all users" option enabled?

I created a shortcut and added "/1" (without quotes) in the property target line but it did not work. (I know, one click will accomplish this but I just like to tweak!)

Disregard.

Found Brink's post of 05-18-2009 on same subject. Followed his directions and worked like a charm.

Thanks Brink !

A:Force Task Manager "Show processes from all users" always enabled.

Hello Manuel,

In addition, you could use the shortcut below to have this. The "Show processes from all users" option just runs Task Manager as elevated (Run as administrator).

I just noticed when I try to show processes for all users in task manager, UAC prompts me, I push OK and task manager disappears. If I try it again or maybe the third time, it works. Anybody heard of this. I keep Avast up to date, run Spybot and Malwarebytes every 3-4 days. I don't think it's a virus or malware thing. Any thoughts?

I have a strange issue. I have a couple of processes that do not show in task manager at all. The strange part is they do on my other PC's.

If I start Word I don't see word.exe if I start some games I don't see their *.exe's I find it to be strange that htings aren't being listed in here. Uninstall and reinstall of offending softwares is not changing anything.

Mind you Process manager is not empty it has a fair amount going on... just some never show up.

Also no rhyme or reason as far as application opening times I can start up word first and it not show up but then start up internet explorer and see the iexplore.exe.

Hi there,

This is my first post. This looks a good forum, I hope I can help.

Or maybe somebody could help me with the task manager.

In Xp when I used the task manger it told me how much CPU is being used. this was very helpful because if one particular process was taking up to much power I ended task.

Yet in Vista x32, even when the cpu is going at full pelt, it only register a few % on the odd program. Something is running, but I do not know what. This has been an ongoing problem for years, and I have installed and reinstalled, and run ant viuses and malware and root kits. Yet when running fully loaded, it never shows what is running, even when showing all users.

My laptop is a Dell inspiron 1720.

I would be grateful if somebody could shed so light on this upgrade from Xp.

Many thanks

Ceira

A:Task manager. Why does is show only a few processes running at low power?

Go to view in task manager and check the infomation that you want to see

For much better information, download process explorer from your search near start up button.

In task manger you have to check show all users, also.

I'm not sure if this is a virus or if my computer is really just having some serious problems.

I am using a Compaq Presario v6000 running Windows XP Pro, sp3. I have recently (as in, in the last three months) done a complete reinstall of Windows ... these problems started within the past week.

I noticed the first time when I had had my computer on for some time ... maybe a few days in a row. This never used to happen before and now it happens even when my computer is on for less than 24 hours. I'm including hibernation time as "on" time; I often put my computer into hibernation when I am away from it. so I can keep what I am working on open to resume when I return to the computer. I clicked on my Chrome icon on the desktop to open the browser. Nothing happened; I have some mouse troubles so I thought I didn't click it. I ended up clicking on the icon half a dozen times, and the program itself never opened. I opened the task manager to see if it had opened a process -- and there were six of them. I tried terminating one of the running chrome.exe's but nothing happened. They stayed. I rebooted my computer and was told that Windows had recovered from a serious error, although googling the results of the EventLog dump didn't find me anything useful. I figured it was a one time issue.

Hello, here's the deal. Two days ago, I noticed 2 problems/changes with the operation of my OS. 1st, I started hearing multiple clicking noises while using IE7, (it seemed like it was trying to load instances of something, but nothing popped up, some may have coincided with banner ads), however, that did not happen previously. The click noise is one in the windows default sounds, but not the one I usually only hear once when clicking a link. I checked if my sound profile had been changed and saw nothing different. The clicks also happen randomly in explorer with no open network connections, say sometimes when I'm simply navigating folders or opening a program. I've been running IE7 for months and this behavior is definately new. Does not happen in Firefox.

Then 2nd, in order to start investigating the issue, while administrator, I opened the task manager and opened the processes tab. When I clicked "show processes from all users" button the UAC opens for confirmation, I confirm the action, and then the task manager just closes, and does not reopen to show everything. That never happened before either. I've tried using the task manager from both the task bar and ctrl-alt-del with the same results, however, when I navigate to taskmanger.exe in win\sys32 folder and right click and run as administrator, it opens automatically showing processes from all users. Hmmmm...

When I look in the Processes section of Task Manager I see a long list of only two of which are not tagged with my user name. Three things;

1. Is this list the same as the list of programs in the Uninstall facility within Control panel?

2. Does the term, "Process, "in this context have the same meaning as the term, "Program?"

3. How can I best decide which Processes I can close without affecting the OS?​
 

A:Task Manager - Processes

1. No

2. sometimes, a program running can be a process, but a process is not always a program.

3. Google search the "image name" to help you discover what it is.

4. not wise to terminate process unless you know what you are doing

in task manager click "view" and then "select columns", then tick only the following

PID
User Name
CPU usage
Memory-private working set
Image path name
command line
Description

hit OK

I use image path name to see where the process is originating from, this gives an indication if it is a installed program or not, depending on what directory it starts from, ie Program files directory.

Usually anything running from the Windows or Windows/system32 folder is a windows process, but not always, some malware and nasties run from these folders also, that is why you can Google the "image path name" to help you learn more.

processes are;

what makes me slightly suspicious of them is none of them will let me open their file locations, nor view properties all other processes will but none of them are using cpu and none of them are running double instances.

Also I seem to have 68 processes (which I think could be reduced)going on in total, cpu usage when idle is at 1% and physical memory at 58 %.
Are these figures near normal for the above specs ?

Hi Lazarus,

While your in Task Manager, right click on the process and click Go to Service(s). This will take you inside of the Services tab where the responsible items are highlighted for your Svchost.exe process. This will tell you what they are.

Running very slow, when I look at the processes on the Task Manager there are loads of them even when I am not running the programs etc. Processes like ITunes helper.exe ,
ccsetmgr.exe , BTHelpnotifier.exe. IPodservice.exe. Does this mean these are running constantly? can I stop the process? what will happen when I want to use ITunes next if I stop the process. How can I find a list of processes I shouldnt stop? Really appreciate some help please.
 

A:Task Manager Processes

OK,

Most processes are important for 1 reason or another
A lot of them are part of Windows

IPodservice.exe controls transfering between your ipod and your computer
ITunes helper.exe helps itunes load faster and launches itunes when you plug in your ipod
If you have an ipod or use itune those 2 processes are important

BTHelpnotifier.exe is a part of BT Broadband Internet Service
ccsetmgr.exe is a part of Norton Antivirus or Norton Internet Security

Most of the processes you shouldn't stop but you can google the name of the process and usually some website will tell you what it does and if its important

But then next time you restart they'll all be back so it would be a big hassle

If your computer is slow then you might want to get more ram or get an ad-ware/spyware program if you don't already have 1

Hope this helps,
Ryan

G;day,running windows xp media centre edition pro...32 bit Sp3I read a reply to a post by "dpunisher" where he said " I usually like to see 32 (on average) or less processes running on a normal system."I opened task manager and I have 54 processes.Where do I start?I have autoruns on my pc, but dont have a very clear idea how to use it.Brian

A:task manager..54 processes

Hello,

I have the same OS and service pack and I have 61 running. What makes you think there is a problem? Not all OS's and machines are created equal. Because someone has 32 does not mean your machine works with only 32. Unless you see performance issues or erratic behavior, I would not be overly concerned.

Is this some kind of malware, or something? It's never happened to me before...

A:Many processes in Task Manager have *32 at the end?

Hi belthagor On Windows 64-bit, processes that have *32 appended at the end means that they are 32-bit processes. This is to differentiate 64-bit and 32-bit processes. This doesn't mean that these processes are malicious at all. Also from a quick look, I can see that all the processes currently running on your system are also legitimate.

At the very top of the forum page you will see a set of tabs
Click on the one that says Startup List
When searching, add the .exe
Don't get worried when you see high numbers in System idle process. That's a good thing

I don't know if this is the correct question, but this issue happens often with my internet explorer stopping and starting often but I noticed that in my task manager of the processes running, I have around 3 iexplorer.exe running and sometimes 6 iexplorer.exe*32 also running.  It seems my computer is operating sluggishly.  I have Norton and often runs scans also I have Emisoft Hijack free version.  It might be my wireless internet but the signal is strong when I check it.  I got an answer from bleeping computer and he told me to go to this link http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/farbar-recovery-scan-tool/ but when I did that my security said that it was dangerous to my computer???? so what to do now??? thanks

A:Task Manager Processes

Who...told you to run that tool?  How can that be, this is your first post at this website.
 
The tool you linked to...is for attempting to neutralize malware.
 
Please check your spelling of the processes listed in Task Manager.
 
Iexplore.exe is the valid IE process...each time a window/tab is opened, another process begins, with 1 always being present in Windows.
 
Iexplorer.exe is malware and should be treated as such.

I am new on this website and I hope it is something that can help me since I get anxiety attacks when I can't fix a problem. :3-nuts. So hello, out there.

I have a long list of processes constantly running in the task manager window and I am wondering if they are all eating up ram. When I use my old graphics program, microsoft picture it!, I have to change the display settings to the lowest and it still hangs after a while. It's even hard to shut it down at that point. BTW, what is "hijack this log" that I see. I thought it might pertain to what I am asking about---but I dont understand what anyone is asking. (I am only mildly computer literate):confused:

Thanks. Linda

A:task manager processes

I typically have 43 running processes, so specific numbers are relative...said number of processes are without any applications running...

whilst in the task manager, choose the performance tab and observe cpu usage, PageFile usage, Physical Memory to make a judgement as to whether or not you have RAM (memory) issues...as a note, IMHO 1GB of ram is pretty much necessary for a modern day machine running XP and other apps.

HijackThis is a nice little proggie that lists out all running processes (with their paths) and also lets you know what is started up with your machine among other little goodies...

if you really think you have some issues, download it, use it and choose to save a log, and copy and past the log into a post in the appropriate part of this forum

Hey all,

I have recently been cleaning up my PC to improve its' abilities. I found that I had a number of unnecessary process occurring, slowing me down. (Thanks Google for the info. on what's what!)

BUT....

I found a strange reoccurrence of the process "svchost.exe"
1) local service
2) system
3) network service
4) system
5) network service
6) system

I found nothing about these thus far in my searching. The closet theory I have is that they have to do with the Wireless Network I have setup. Maybe each computer has it's own process on the host computer (mine).

Well, if anyone can give some of their know-how to this it would be greatly appreciated. Something tells me it is really nothing to worry about and I should just let it be.

-Thanks all, have a joyous day.

I have files under the Processes tab of Task Manager that I think might be causing me problems or at the very least don't need to be there. I was hoping that I might get some ideas on what programs do the best as far as managing processes. I want to be able to keep these processes from running and be able to remove them if needed. Shareware or commercial software doesn't matter as long as it does the job. See my profile for system info. Thanks for your help.

Hello, my computer has been acting a bit slow recently for no apparent reason. I haven't had any new software installations or added anything else new. What i have noticed is that when i open up my task manager via ctrl+alt+del and look at the processes tab, there are a lot of process that are running. Is there any way i can shut down some of the unnecessary ones and get rid of them? Also when i look at the startup processes under "msconfig", there are a few of them that are checked. Would it be safe to uncheck some of them and would that make my computer start up faster?
Thanks.

Yes, you can remove some proccesses, but be careful. Only do it if you know what it is, and know that it is not a important proccess. If you are unsure about what a proccess is, google it. Somewhere should give you the proccess information and wheather or not you can terminate it.

You can also stop some start-up programs, which will make it start up faster. Don't change any of Windows componates, and again, only uncheck it, if you know what it is, again, google it for info.

You may also want to check for spyware/viruses. Follow the steps in my sig.

Hi All,

Have just recently bought a new computer and have been dipping my toe into the world of audio file transfer. Found the files I wanted but know there seem to be more processes running in the Task Manager window than ever before!! I don't know which of these processes are crucial or even how to print off a list of these processes to show you! Having looked over the forum, I did see a query regarding what was included in the start-up menu and have used HijackThis to print off the following :

A:Processes in Task Manager have gone mad

HI, Go to this site and have a read as he has itemized all the services in XP:-
http://www.blackviper.com/

Someone will look at your list later on I don't now enough. You did not state what problem you have. If you do get a lot of spyware or a virus it does cause physical signs on your computer such as slow startup etc. You never mentioned any signs at all and you have tested to see if you have spy ware so why are you worried about it. Peace Mal

Is there a place I can find information about the processes running on my computer. The task manager shows 41 processes running. I'd like to know what these are and what they are connected to. All help greatly appreciated.

I would recommend www.sysinfo.org . Also if you are suspicious about something you can post your HJT log under HJT log help forum and an analyst would give you an idea of what is going on and any necessary steps u need. If it is curiosity I may recommend another fun stuff HJT :D

Why do processes for programs (like winword, firefox) stay in the processes list even after I have exited the programs? Sometimes the amount of memory used is small, other times it is large, Firefox particularly refuses to run or runs badly until I have manually ended the process, but the others just stay there eating up memory.
