If your task manger isn't showing all processes than you probably have a virus and you should format your hard drive.

I don't use that much RAM and I've got 16 gigs total. Something's wrong.


I don't have a virus. If I did then it would show up on something right?


It's showing up through your computer not displaying every process.

No.... Task Manager is just gay kuke that. Process Explorer shows everything though. Goodbye using Task Manager. I don't care for it at all anymore.

That's seriously not normal behavior for Task Manager.

I wonder. Whats the best virus program you can think of? I'll use it to scan my system and show you the results. I know it won't show anything. If it does i'll be shocked but yeah...

Its also not a big deal anyways either now that I have the other program. The "virus" does nothing else but that anyways. No performance hindrance or anything at all. So I really dont care if I do really have a so called virus on my system that is doing that. I could careless now but will scan my system still just for the helleva of it. It would have to be till tonight though when I go to bed. I dont want to wait around a few hours till it gets done.

Ok.. first off, Virus "Scanners" don't do heuristic scans, and those that do aren't even close to decent at it. I have written viruses specifically to test against this. Those which are marketed at doing a heuristic scan are still only checking against a dictionary of known exploits. Most "Virus scanners" just look for a matching signature to a known exploit. Wanna get past the virus scanner? Add a line of code and recompile.

Secondly, you should study this graph:

Lol, that graph is spot on. It's amazing the amount of people who see a sluggish computer and assume it's viruses.

??????? That doesn't apply to me. As my System is NOT running slow. Also you read my previous posts. I said "virus" in quotes meaning unlikely that there is one on my system. So yeah....

Regardless of what it is, Fade needs to format his computer. It's out of control.

I'm trying to understand this topic

so because you have poor computer management skills we all need more ram?
