    Over the space of a week, I've stealing snippets of time in the evenings reading web pages on installing CyanogenMod on my new Moto G. I find that there is a lot of detail regarding the steps to take, but it's been harder getting the big picture. So far, my "map" is that I have to unlock the boot loader, root the phone, install backup software and backup the original (preferrably with all caches cleared), install a recovery, then install CyanogenMod.

    I will admit up front that in the process of going on detours reading up for context, I lost track of where I was at, and on what web page of instructions. However, from "c/Program Files (x86)/Android", I the following installed.

    android-sdk/AVD Manager.exe
    android-sdk/platform-tools/adb.exe
    android-sdk/platform-tools/dmtracedump.exe
    android-sdk/platform-tools/etc1tool.exe
    android-sdk/platform-tools/fastboot.exe
    android-sdk/platform-tools/hprof-conv.exe
    android-sdk/platform-tools/sqlite3.exe
    android-sdk/SDK Manager.exe
    android-sdk/tools/emulator-arm.exe
    android-sdk/tools/emulator-mips.exe
    android-sdk/tools/emulator-x86.exe
    android-sdk/tools/emulator.exe
    android-sdk/tools/lib/AVD Manager.exe
    android-sdk/tools/lib/find_java.exe
    android-sdk/tools/lib/monitor-x86/eclipsec.exe
    android-sdk/tools/lib/monitor-x86/monitor.exe
    android-sdk/tools/lib/monitor-x86_64/eclipsec.exe
    android-sdk/tools/lib/monitor-x86_64/monitor.exe
    android-sdk/tools/lib/SDK Manager.exe
    android-sdk/tools/mksdcard.exe
    android-sdk/uninstall.exe

    So that's how far I am, and I've not plugged the phone into the PC yet, and neither have I ran any apps like adb, fastboot, or the like. I use cygwin's bash shell, so I can checkback in my history of commands to confirm this. However, my task manager shows adb running. What could have triggered that, and can I just kill its process tree?

    For extra safety, is an Windows 7 administrator account needed for any of the process described in my opening paragraph? If not, I'm not going to continue with an admin account.
