Bought daughter a recon laptop for xmas that was a clean set up.
she needed to end prog as it froze earlier on today however when she pressed Control/alt/del she had a long list in the Task manger box as follows
while we know what some are the others are a mystery.How did they get there ??can we delete them??

What you've got is a list of the programs that were running at the time you pressed Ctrl+Alt+Delete
Its most likely from the Applications tab though it could be the Processes tab
Nothing looks particularly suspicious so i wouldn't try and get rid of any of them

You have Gator spywarehttp://www.liutilities.com/products/wintas...library/cmesys/
Run Spybot & Adware. Make sure you run update first.
Gator GAIN (GMT.exe, CMESys.exe, GAIN_TRICKLER_*.EXE) - Pops up advertising, apparently a new Gator product. A security hole in some versions allows Web sites to install arbitrary software on your computer.

By runnung the 2 programs, it is much easier, they find all the entries in the registry, which the average pc user would find it difficult to find and delete
