Windows 7: processes in question while updating

processes in question while updating

There are 3 processes that caught my eye, which I haven't seen in recent memory:

ClickOnce (microsoft)
Windows Driver Foundation- User-mode
NVIDIA Driver Helper Service

I may have never noticed these before and they've always been running, but I also wasn't sure if it meant that a few drivers or programs were in need of updates and the helper programs were being launched to try and inform me. Anyway just wanted to ask some of the gurus for their opinion

All these process are normal to see, I knew the bottom 2 but the top one stumped me and I found it to be a form that appears in IE (You know when you install chrome and it asks to run?).

Thank you for taking the time and look at those, I was going to take a look when I got home, but you beat me to the punch. Glad to here nothing out of the ordinary. Thanks again

Actually in my haste I forgot to add "windows audio device graph isolation", which seems to be using a decent amount of memory. I was told it could be a driver issue, but again not 100% sure.
