Hi Harry  Smile

Process Explorer help
Process Explorer | The Process View | Process View Options


Highlight Services: on Windows NT and higher this option has Process Explorer show processes that are running Win32 services in the service process highlight color. The Services tab of the process properties dialog shows the list of services running within a process.

Highlight Jobs: on Windows 2000 and higher choose this option to have Process Explorer show processes that are part of a Win32 Job in the Job object highlight color. Jobs group processes together so that they can be managed as a single item and are used by the Runas command, for example. Use the Job tab of the process properties dialog to see the list of processes running in the same job as the selected process and to see job limits that have been applied to the job.

Highlight .NET Processes: this option appears on Windows NT-based systems that have the .NET Framework installed. When the option is checked managed applications (those that use the .NET Framework) are highlighted in the .NET process highlight color.

Highlight Own Processes: on Windows NT and higher checking this option results in Process Explorer showing in the own-process highlight color the processes that are running in the same user account as Process Explorer.

Highlight Packed Images: malware, including viruses, spyware, and adware is often stored in a packed encrypted form on disk in order to attempt to hide the code it contains from antispyware and antivirus.


One remark : Packed images are not only malwares.
E.g. PPControl.exe = Pest Patrol , anti-spyware
      hm.exe = HostManager, utility to control and update Hosts file
      Proxomitron.exe = Web filter
