Unseen programs in back ground??

Hello all,

I was wondering if any of you know how you can tell if something is running in the back ground of my system that I don't know about? I ask this because my system has been running a little slower than normal and I haven't added anything to it. I use Norton System Works to clean my registry, cache, TIF's and optimized files & wiped my free space. I ran the file checker against my Win98 SE disk to make sure there were no corrupted files. I also ran a full virus scan with the last live update (06/07/03) and scaned online for Trojans, but found none. If you thinK I missed something, let me know. I thought there was a way using DOS, but I'm not sure.

I know the mdac isnt needed.

Also, the ATI stuff, unless you use the tools for gaming or specific applications.

Here are a few sites that will help you decide what to get rid of at startup.

You might also want to run a scan for Spyware.
