What Is Running in the Background on My Computer?

To find out what programs are running in the back of your computer open the task manager by simultaneously pressing the Ctrl, Alt, and Delete keys. An anti-virus scanner may also be scanning your computer for viruses in the background. You should however run Resmon if you are working on the Windows 7 operating system.
