Hello, 

I'm trying to find unwanted processes on my PC.

Can anyone tell me the usual or common processes on the Task Manager of a PC running Windows Vista Home Basic?

Hi Einar,

Full of those annoying list of processes in the task manager, then worry not because I will show to you the most important processes in your operating system, or in your Windows Vista Home Basic Operating System to be specific.

Well, there are a lot of processes that are common to users, but there are only 10-7 processes that are very essential in your Windows Vista Home Basic Operating System.

Here is the list.

Common Processes:

acrotray.exe

csrss.exe

csrcs.exe

ctfmon.exe

explorer.exe

iexplore.exe

lsass.exe

rundll32.exe

services.exe

smss.exe

spoolsv.exe

System

System Idle Process

taskmgr.exe

wdfmgr.exe

winlogon.exe

winword.exe

Essential and Important Processes

  • taskmgr.exe
  • explorer.exe
  • svchost.exe
  • spoolsv.exe
  • lsass.exe
  • services.exe
  • winlogon.exe
  • csrss.exe
  • smss.exe
  • System Idle Process

Just end or disable all of those process you simply don’t need, and leave only the ones you need and of course, the important processes.

It is not recommended to kill any processes running in the background just because you think they are unwanted processes. Doing this can cause adverse effect on your computer. It can make your system unstable which can lead to sudden freezing of the system. The processes running in the background are the applications that run during startup.

If you want to remove or kill unwanted, unnecessary, or unimportant processes running in the background, do it from the startup configuration screen. Click Start, Run, type without quotes “msconfig” then hit Enter. In the System Configuration Utility window, select Startup tab. On this tab, uncheck the applications you don’t want to start with Windows. Disabling the application will remove them from the background processes.

After unchecking all the applications you want to disable, click OK then restart your computer. The applications you removed will now disappear from the background processes. Just a reminder, make sure you select the correct application to disable because it can cripple other important applications.
