Ad-Aware Running Processes

Recommended Posts

Just out of curiosity, how many Running Processes and Process Modules do you have when performing an Ad-Aware scan?


I have 35 Running Processes and 1357 Process Modules.




Would this be considered as normal/average?


I do appeciate everyones will be different, and there is probably no such thing as normal/average.


Would be interesting to find out about others though.

so is it something like a DLL that is currently running?




Dynamically Linked Library - (DLL) - A library which is linked to application programs when they are loaded or run rather than as the final phase of compilation. This means that the same block of library code can be shared between several tasks rather than each task containing copies of the routines it uses. The executable is compiled with a library of "stubs" which allow link errors to be detected at compile-time. Then, at run time, either the system loader or the task's entry code must arrange for library calls to be patched with the addresses of the real shared library routines, possibly via a jump table.


The alternative is to make library calls part of the operating system kernel and enter them via some kind of trap instruction. This is generally less efficient than an ordinary subroutine call.


It is important to ensure that the version of a dynamically linked library is compatible with what the executable expects.


Examples of operating systems using dynamic linking are SunOS (.so - shared object files), Microsoft Windows (.dll) and RISC OS on the Acorn Archimedes (relocatable modules).
