    Hey guinnyss,

    I would look into WinPatrol. This program will allow you to see what is installed, what is trying to be installed, and what is changing on your computer.

    It is a real time program that continuously runs in the background and will alert you if anything "suspicious" happen. It will also tell you what all those programs that you see in Task Manager do and who created them.

    Hope this helps!

    BTW...you can pick up the program at PCWorld.com.

    ;)
