I have downloaded that program that goes on your control panel, and now when i restart my pc, fewer programs and processes run.

Also in the bottom right corner of your screen it has mini icons.

What are they called?

And how do you find out what process they are so that you can end it ?

" This is awesome. Drops a shadow, OS X style, from all your windows and menus. Also makes menus semi transparent.
