Yes the answer is in the processes.

Start;Run type msconfig and tab along to Startup.

Look to see what you do not want starting up when you boot your computer and remove the check mark next to the wording. This may require some research into what each one does.

If you are unsure....post the problem in this thread and we will look at it for you.

You may also want to consider a Hijack This scan to make sure that nothing nasty is eating up at your system resources. I suggest you do the above first then prepare your machine following this process. http://www.techsupportforum.com/secu...kthis-log.html

I tried to view the thumbnails but couldn't get my stinking "zoom" function to work today (see my ranting thread if you feel like helping me) but I WILL say that 69 process is WAY TOO MANY.

Did I say that clear ? WAY TOO MANY.

Can't say for sure what should stay and which should go, but (again) WAY TOO MANY. (This is for anyone else casually reading the thread as I am sure the OP has got it by now.)



The deal is, while Task Manager is a good way to see what is running, you are going to need to get rid of some stuff using Add/Remove Programs. At least initially.

I say this because I'd bet that some these running processes are malware, spyware and/or crapware and yeah I BET the system is running slow.

So getting rid of unnecessary "legitimate" programs would be the first thing to do, but then (again, I'd bet) that some manual removal of "bad-ware" is in the near future.

I do run Spybot S&D regularly and microtrend scan regularly. So IDK what kind of badware can get on my comp. Ill be posting soon. If it will help, I can post a pic of my startup tab. Thanks

Under windows, you can get your base process count down to around ~13.

Most of them programs are not needed on startup. These can be trimmed down to speed things up a bit.

how do I know which ones to trim down? I trimmed down as many as I could from the msconfig. But it only brought it down a little. Is there another way to do it?

I run 14 startups in XP Pro SP2 and the rest are all set to run after that, by keyboard shortcuts: email button runs Thunderbird 1.5.0.8, www button runs Firefox2, customized ones Ctrl+Shift+A runs Adobe CS2 etc.

What you want to do is, start-up Spybot S&D and in the left pane, click on a tab at the bottom named Tools. Then click on System Startup. On the right you'll get displayed all your start-up entries. There you can disable/delete them so they don't start at Windows reboot.

Don't do anything there but look around unless you know which program is which. If you point to each entry there, you'll be given all its info, i.e. name, what it is, where it runs from, the version etc.
DO NOT touch/mess with svchost.exe and the .ini etc entries you'll see. Most of them will be needed by Windows to startup & function properly.

Programs like PowerDVD should be removed.

It's always better using the actual programs interface to disable the startup option but use whichever method is best for you

I find this is a good guide as to when services are needed or not

Spybot S&D deletes the registry entries and can manage your services, current processes, TCP/IP connections, and Hosts file as well.
