    hi everybody i have a major question. whenever i try to access my task manager and go to the Processes tab, im always trying to delete some unwanted stuff that are doing nothing. But the problem is whenever i try to do this it gives me the typical warning message and i click yes, i didnt delete anything important to my comp, it wont delete. there are no messages, just the same screen that i was looking at before, please help!

    Not sure what you are trying to do. You can't delete anything through the Task Manager--it doesn't have that ability or option. And most processes that are needed to run your machine cannot be affected by the user.
