As shown in the screenshot, the additional processes are not system
processes and they are not running in the current user's context.
Administrative user "soft1" is running user process "cmd.exe" in the context
of user "soft1". I can type input into that window. I still wonder why
standard user "$B1Q8l%f!<%6(B" was able to see processes owned by "soft1".
(For example, after posting, I typed the command line "taskmgr" and got a
second Task Manager window. As expected, the second one was owned by user
"soft1" instead of "$B1Q8l%f!<%6(B". As expected, that one did show system
processes. As expected, system processes were owned by user SYSTEM or LOCAL
SERVICE or NETWORK SERVICE.)
