    Not much. A program usually runs as a process.

    Some programs (like Internet Explorer) can be started as several
    separate instances, which are separate processes. Other programs (like
    Firefox) only use a single process even if you start new instances.

    Some programs use more than one process for some tasks, like quickstart
    helpers and local web servers.

    There are also processes that you usually don't think of as programs,
    like services and the windows desktop (explorer.exe).
