Hey when I go into my task manager >Processes

It shows up all the software that is running on my computer but there is nothing there under User Name.

The only thing that is showing out of the user names is for the system Idle Process and it just says system.

Can any one tell me why this would happen?
Could it be something that I have disabled in the services.msc?

I found the problem. My tech mate (Google lol) told me this:

Task Manager User Name column is empty
When you open Task Manager, the User Name field might be blank, as shows in the Fig. This happens if the Terminal Service is not started. The default startup type for this service need to be set to Automatic and it must be started. Follow this procedure:

Click Start, Run and type Services.msc
Locate Terminal Services and double-click it
Set the Startup type to Automatic, and click Apply
Click the Start button to launch the service manually.
Now Task Manager User Name field will show up.
