use "ps". for questions like this, i'd advise you to refer to a manual like the rute guide in my signature before directly asking, it will probably answer your question in vastly less time.

as to what processes are necessary etc... well that's all subjective, you can't just show "network" processes or such like.

What distro are you running?
Why would you not trust the processes running in background?
In most distros yu'll have a gui thingy that let's you manage what is runing - it will let you switch off (e.g.) httpd, telndetd, ftpd etc stuff if you don't need it.

Please specify why you are askin and we'll try to help you out a bit.

My idea ....

To end something just use top and type K when running it to kill the process by typing in the process number .



P.S.: It works in SuSe but it's doesn't have the Kill option on OSX so maybe you can't do it this way... well just try out ... should work somehow .

zetsui. these continual references to cracking software and systems are not appreciated in any way. please stop. the more you talk about these things, the more you sound like someone who would be best just sticking with windows forever.
