hi a few days ago there was a great link to a site that told you what each running process in task manager was ie neccessary/optional/malware etc. could anybody point me to the site or the thread please
my problem is i allowed my 18 year old son on my computer - and hes been surfing the net (god knows where)when i did a scan using adaware afterwards it showed a dialer "columbas" which adaware duly deleted. however when i looked at task manager i usually have about 32 running processes but now have 35. i use aol for internet connection but i dont recognise "aoltpspd.exe" and "aolacsd.exe" so im concerned that these may be programes that hes picked up on his "travels".can u tell me if these are malware or harmless progs?
going by click here it does seem to be an aol excecutable.
did a search for aolacsd.exe also and got a lot of hits on google from spyware forums but it was mostly just listed on process logs posted by those enquiring about something else.by the paths shown it also seems to be ok and is in the aol folder.
