avgemc.exe
avgupsvc.exe
avgamsvr.exe
explorer.exe
spoolsv.exe
svchost.exe
taskmgr.exe
svchost.exe
svchost.exe
svchost.exe
svchost.exe
Isass.exe
services.exe
winlogon.exe
csrss.exe
alg.exe
smss.exe

System Idle Process

Any help would be appreciated.

If I ever run across processes that I'm unsure of, I just look it up at Process Library, which usually has an entry to describe what each process does. Just glancing at your list you have some processes that you don't necessary need to have running, but you may just want to end up leaving them, so it's more or less your call.
