    Hi,

    When I press ctrl-alt-del. I see programs running that I don't have any idea what they are. Entries for example

    vsmon
    sllights
    wkcalrem
    winmgmt.

    I have pasted below what my start up programs say:

    Can anyone tell me what the above entries might be?

    thanks
