    I have a strange issue. I have a couple of processes that do not show in task manager at all. The strange part is they do on my other PC's.

    If I start Word I don't see word.exe if I start some games I don't see their *.exe's I find it to be strange that htings aren't being listed in here. Uninstall and reinstall of offending softwares is not changing anything.

    Mind you Process manager is not empty it has a fair amount going on... just some never show up.

    Also no rhyme or reason as far as application opening times I can start up word first and it not show up but then start up internet explorer and see the iexplore.exe.
