    PMRunner32 & 64 - from the app logs I just can read, that this is Razer Cortex process, that is autodetecting installed games on PC at startup of Cortex app.

    Razer Central is the one, that "integrates" all apps in one tray (Synapse, Cortex etc.) and holds your Razer-ID. Razer Cental Service - is the service app, that just run in the background.

    Synapse Service Process - as above, service app, that starts with the system, running in the background.

    RzKLService - it's look like main service app for Cortex app.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, that's just my suppositions. Maybe Synapse/Cortex dev's can lighten us a bit with these apps running on our PC's?

    When something suck up to 1/2 G of private bytes, it's normally that one should start asking questions. Yes, I am one of those who keep minimum number of services and software running during game sessions but Razer took over here.
