Windows 7: Malware or accident involving "Show processes from all users"?

Malware or accident involving "Show processes from all users"?

So basically I opened up my task manager a moment ago, and found it flooded with running processes. I'd had experience before with Poweliks and used a program to remove that on two separate occasions. This time around the program didn't detect it. So I started running Malware Bytes and Norton, both of which found malware and removed them. But the same issue of the heavily loaded task manager continued.


Then I found that I had "Show processes from all users" checked on, and checking it off had my task manager processes significantly reduced in number.


Then I remember an incident earlier today in which a program crashed, forcing me to navigate the task manager with my keyboard only to shut off the program. I had been rather sloppy in my attempt to close it and may have accidentally clicked "Show processes from all users" on.


So this feels like a dumb question so I ask, is it normal and was this the case? Is 66 processes for all users normal?

66 is not bad. Using my 3 brain cells memory that is normal for many.
The system I'm on now has 52

Account "Roger" appears as "c:\users\user"
Hi all, I recently created a new user account on a win 7 home premium machine before I'd had much experience with win 7 (but years with 2000 and xp). Instead of users\Roger\ it created users\user which I now realise is not correct. (I didn't call my account "user", either, before you ask. :) )...
