Re: What is Onenotem.exe

Onenotem.exe is not any kind of Trojan or Spyware. It is installed by the software Microsoft Office OneNote. It is housed in the Windows notification area (right of the taskbar) for quick access to functions of notetaking software. A left click on the icon opens a new window taking notes. Right click, meanwhile, opens a menu for quick access to various features.

The Program Manager can be used to display information on the processes and programs running on a computer, and the general status of the computer. It can also be used to terminate processes and programs, as well as change the process priority.

Re: What is Onenotem.exe

Onenotem.exe is part of the note taking program that ships with Microsoft Office 2003. A process is an instance of a computer program that is executed sequentially. A computer program itself is just a passive collection of instructions, while a process is the actual execution of these instructions. Several processes can be associated with one program, for example the opening of two windows of the same program typically means two processes are running.
