What is a "ton" of processes? The term is so highly subjective it means nothing. The number of processes running in itself doesn't mean much. What is important is what they are doing. You can have 100 or more inactive processes and have good performance. You could also have a relatively small number of active processes and have very poor performance.

We need more information.

Run the freeware "process explorer" and post a snap shot. Processes that are highlighted in purple are "packed" and often viruses.
