    Hi,

    I've recently noticed two entries at the top of the Task Manager which have blank "user name" and "description" fields. The first entry is about 1,300K, and the other is 660K.

    When I right click on either, I can select "Perform Administrative Task". If I choose to do so, the blank entries disappear, and the "show processes from all users" box is checked.

    I wonder if this is a security issue that Spybot, Windows Defender and AVG Free haven't picked up.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
