Ok, so this summer I purchased a Mac after years of having PCs. I'm extremely paranoid about my computer having bad things on it. So I just wanted to make sure that these processes are ok.

Hi Courtney - welcome to Mac-Forums!

No, nothing there to be worried about. Those are normal processes of the MacOS.

If it's of any assurance to you, your Mac is most unlikely to be invaded by the sorts of nasties that plague the Windows world.

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Looks ordinary to me! Like hugh said, there's virtually nothing to be worried about with Macs in terms of security.

How do you like them Apples?

hughvane is being entirely too diplomatic.

There are NO viruses for the Mac, NO spyware, and almost no malware (a couple of things found alongside pirated software, which brings up Rule 4: Pay for What You Use. Don't Steal from Mac Developers). Not saying you do or would, but just pointing out that the ONLY malware found for the Mac after over 10 YEARS! was "trickware" hidden inside bootleg software. So its easy to avoid.
