List of essential Windows Processes

  • System Idle Process
  • explorer.exe
  • services.exe
  • winlogon.exe
  • taskmgr.exe
  • spoolsv.exe
  • lsass.exe
  • csrss.exe
  • smss.exe
  • (Multiple Instances) svchost.exe -> controls connections to the internet
  • If you kill any of the other processes, Windows XP should work fine, however, the list I gave contains the processes that may, if killed, make Windows unstable or even crash it entirely.
