MS has rolled up dozens of useful utilities (including the ever popular 'Autoruns') into one 8mb file.

Process Explorer is a favorite of mine. It's an in-depth task manager.. very useful.

Taybay, I have one process in procexp marked with a fat purple line all across. Do you happen to know what that means. Also sometimes fat red lines pop up on misc. processes. Any clue?

Well if you go to Options>Configure Highlighting, you can see what the highlights mean. By default, Purple is "Packed Image" and Red is "Deleted Objects." I'm not quite sure what packed images are, but deleted objects are just programs or processes that have been terminated for whatever reason.

There is a semi-helpful forum dedicated to some of the sysinternals utilities. Here is the Process Explorer one.

Also, I have a .doc of a guide to some of the things you can do with .dll files and processes in Process Explorer. I can't remember where I found it, but I can send it to you.
