    Changing tasks in Task Manager from 'Suspended' to 'Runnin


    I want to change WWAHost.exe on the 'Details' tab in Task Manager from 'Suspended' to 'Running', how do I do that? When I right click on the name I can't see anything on the menu that does this!

    Restoring a suspended process can have some serious implications. In some cases they must be restored in a specific order. Likely for such reasons Task manager does not have this capability. Task Manager is often used by novices who might try things just to see what happens.Some utilities like Process Explorer allow the user to arbitrarily suspend or restore processes at will. But this is an advanced tool for users who presumably understand the implications and potential risks.

Bad tasks in task scheduler in General Support
I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 8. When I open up task scheduler I receive several messages saying "The selected task "taskname" no longer exists". How do I remove these dead tasks? I assume they are left over somehow from Win 7.
