Curious What a Certain Process Is?

If you are ever checking your running processes for spyware (Start > Run > taskmgr > Processes) and are curious what one of the running programs is, Google it.

A simple search of the executable file can help you quickly determine if this is something you want running or not.

For example, when I search "alg.exe" on Google, the first hit shows this is not a malicious process, rather something Windows needs running.
