A friend of mine has had his xp hiijacked by Zeus before so now he monitors quite closely. He noticed the other day that a user "backup" had 6 programs running next to its' icon at the logon screen. Upon logging on he couldn't see any applications running at all. I've run a full malware ( malwarebytes) and Norton scan on the machine with nothing amiss. There are a least 6 "update" type processes that will run from time to time  but again i couldn't see anything amiss using msconfig. SOO the question is when and how does the logon on screen update it's running programs infomation , could it be that this information was old, i.e from when the machine had started earlier in the day and infact the processes running were ligitamate but had soon finished
