Non windows-related apps may run and show up in your task manager. So when you close them you may end up closing an application running on the background. And viruses are not that stupid to show up in the task manager, just like that, in normal cases.

You can try something like this:

Also there is a small software called ProcessExplorer. You can check that out.
