Edited question so it's not a 'software rec' question but instead asks for a solution to this problem.

comment How to check running processes and get suggestions on garbage to kill?
I know sometimes it doesn't take up much resources but still trying to optimize it. The thing that bothers me is that sometimes I go to task manager, find a weird exe running and have to search for it just to discover I really don't need to be running it (tray icon, program updates schedulers, etc). It would be nice to have a somewhat automatic program that advises you on that, without me going through the whole list.

@Hastur thanks. I asked for a program that gives a somewhat report / suggestions on garbage that can be killed. top / ps is useful to do the task manually but it's very far from automatic :)

thanks for the feedback. I understand the off-topic when asking for 'the best unzip tool' because that's subjective. But in this case I'm asking for any kind of tool that does this. I didn't find anything free on my searches so it doesn't seem to be off-topic from SU... any suggestions how / where to ask this then?
