Those all look normal to me. Only "rpcss.exe" is not actually running
here. DrWatson will offer a brief description of them, in the Tasks tab.
You may sort any column by clicking it's header.
"START, Run, DRWATSON"; now, D-Clk it's button in the Tray.
What diagnosis is on the first tab? Copy/paste it's contents,
using the menu. Close DrWatson, but leave it in the Tray. It sits
waiting for a crash, then traps it, putting info into the Diagnosis tab.
(a) "START, Find, F/F, DrWatson.exe". (Should be in "C:\Windows".)
(b) R-Clk it, point to "Send to" & click "Desktop (Create shortcut)".
(c) R-Clk the shortcut on the Desktop, & select "Cut".
(d) Open Explorer to "C:\WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp"
(e) R-Clk in the R-Pane, & select "Paste".
Now, it will always boot to the Tray, waiting for a crash or a D-Clk.
How to troubleshoot program faults with DrWatson
Thanks or Good Luck,
There may be humor in this post, and,
Naturally, you will not sue,
should things get worse after this,
| I just found a list of all the programs that are running
| whenever I am using win98se.
| I knew what most of them are, but these 5 stumped me.
| All 5 are found in my win98se\system subdirectory, and all start up
| at bootup from the registry..
| mprexe.exe 28672 bytes 4-23-99
| mmtask.tsk 1184 bytes 4-23-99
| rpcss.exe 20480 bytes 4-23-99
| wmiexe.exe 16384 bytes 4-23-99
| ddhelp.exe 32768 bytes 12-2-02
| Can anyone tell me what these files are, what they do, and
| what would happen if I killed or deleted them?
| I'm paranoid, and I don't like to have something running when
| I have no idea what it does.
