What are the processes that are running on Windows and how to know them

The Windows Task Manager is able to separate its display of the programs that are running on the Computer into two tabs. You can view each of the running programs from the Applications tab by Name, the Process tab is a much longer list that shows every executable file that’s running, including child process, services and process that run in the Background. If you’re using the Windows XP Operating System, right click on any of the items in the Applications list and choose Go To Process from the Shortcut menu. Here, the main thing you’ve to remember is if the process stops the life of the CPU or if you find a mysterious process that you can’t identify, it might be related with the Malware. In that case, you’ve to search for the tools to find the file responsible for the process and then figure out what it is.

At the same time, if you have Windows 7 or Vista it will simplify the process. If you right click any item in the Process list, you can get more choices on its shortcut menu.

•    You have to click Open File Location to open Windows Explorer and see the file responsible for the running process.
•    Just knowing which folder it appears in can be enough to help ease your mind about a process with a mysterious name.
•    The Properties menu choice, also new in Windows Vista and Windows 7, leads directly to the properties dialog box for the associated file, where a greatly expanded Details tab includes copyright information and other relevant text drawn from the file itself. That information can help you decide whether a file is legitimate or needs further investigation.
•    Finally, for processes that are running as Windows services, you can click the Go To Service(s) option, which will take you to the Services tab and highlight all of the individual services associated with that process. For an instance of Svchost.exe, for example, the list might number a dozen individual services.
You can use these steps to get the process details that are running in the Windows 7 Operating System.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…
