    Kraziebone, Defender bata from Microsft download

    Download Defender beta from Microsoft. Memory...I think beta-2 ..
    Anyway you are looking at what is in the Taskmanager and you can set those item aside if I recall correctly.

    It sure worked for me. Fairly straight forward too, kinda refreshing for Microsoft.

    I*ll keep an eye here and see what you think of it. The icon is a little greystone fortress wall image. TG

    can you explain on what those programs are? and if you've tried to remove them before successfully/unsucessfully, as well as any errors (full description please)

    also.. may wanna run through these, if those programs seem abit dodgy..

    Try CCleaner. It helps remove programs that can't be uninstalled through usual add\remove program windows wizard
