Hello everyone, i am running Windows 7 Ultimate x86.
2GB ram
500GB Disk
Celeron D 3.47Ghz

Pretty much in task manager it says i have 66 Procssess running. Surely this can't be normal. Some seem to be the same as well just double or triple or even more of the same task. I have a Hijack log here.

That looks somewhat normal - what is the actual problem? Having processes running shouldn't be a problem - my machine currently has 89 running, and it is working properly.

So, what specifically is the actual problem you are facing?

The number of processes in itself has little relationship to pretty much anything. You could have 100 or more inactive processes with no harmful effects. On the other hand, you could have a small number of very active processes that have a severe impact on performance or stability.

The svchost.exe processes act as a host for system services. It is normal to have a dozen or more with Windows 7.

It isn't the number of processes that is important. It is what they are doing.
