Double Programs on Startup RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I startup my computer, many programs start double time such as Ati2evxx, csrss,rundll32(3 times), taskeng.. And Windows Explorer closes and starts 3 or 4 times in 2 minutes. When I try to start a program such as Internet Explorer, it starts two times like before but I see only one. It is doubled on task menager. This only happens on some programs. What can I do?
    Note: I'm using Vista 32 bit with service pack 1.

    If you are just seeing this in the Task Manager, this is normal for most of those processes.


    In the Task Manager, click View/Select Columns and place a check mark in the PID (Process Identifier) option. Now, look at one of these processes that has double entries and you will see different PID numbers for the same process name in that column.
