Can I End These Processes?

If you’ve ever used the Ctrl-Alt-Del command, you’ve probably seen the Windows Task Manager and most likely the tab for open applications.  If you click on the second tab, Processes, you’ll see a number of programs that are currently available and may be working.  Ever wonder what these were and if you should/could end some of them?

ProcessLibrary.com gives you just this type of information.  For example, I’ve always wondered what csrss.exe was.  Using this service, I found that it is a main executable for the Windows Client/Server Runtime Server Subsystem.  It’s important for stability and security of the program — definitely do not want to end this process!

I know there are other programs that do this, but this is the first I’ve used.  If you know of others, I’d be interested!
