How to see what programs are running

To see initially what is running press CTRL SHIFT ESC.
This brings up Task Manager and a bit quicker than CTRL/ALT/DEL

Many programs running in the background wil not show so to view everything

Click START Go to RUN

Type in

For example to see if Microsoft Essentials Anti Virus is working

Scroll down to Microsoft AntMalware Service. If this is listed as "started" and "automatic" it is running in the background and will work
