Which *.exe application ??

When you DO see the name of the *.exe file in the Task Manager Processes list, it doesn't necessarly have an interface, and usually doesn't.

If you NEVER see the name of it in the Task Manager Processes list, it's probably using one of the SVCHOST instances to run it.

You can download Process Explorer from the Microsoft web site and install it and run it to see what each instance of SVCHOST is running, but usually whatever it is running is NOT malware.

What problem do you think you have ?

It's NORMAL for you to have more activity from programs running for a short while after the first time you start up Windows on a particular day.

I have some exec processes running that are related to my
Netzero Dialup internet connection.
Another is X1Exec.exe

What is myexe.exe ?

When I search with; myexe.exe
I get very few "hits", none of which appear to be of use,
and when I search with: myexe
I get more "hits" and it appears to be something used in Facebook.

"do not know how to show myexe.exe when i log in so that i can adjust it settings."

You probably cannot acces it in any case BEFORE the desktop screen has loaded.

Is myexe listed in your All Programs list ? - if yes, access it by clicking on that.

If it isn't listed there, obviously, you need to make something so you can access it easily.
Once Windows has loaded, search for myexe.exe in My Computer or Windows Explorer on C or whatever partition you installed it on, RIGHT click on it, select Send to - Desktop (create shotcut).
Click on the shortcut when you want to access it.

myexe.exe is an application written by someone else. It gets started by task scheduler. When I log in, i see it is running but I can not see its interface dialog to adjust its controls. How do i make it show its interface+controls in order to adjust them. I see it in the processes list. i do not recall if I saw it in the application tab.

Make a shortcut to it (an icon) on your desktop screen. See response 4.
Click on the shortcut to access it.
