To many processes in XP

two truly comprehensive web sites:
which covers the topic of xp efficiency in an extremely thorough and comprehensive manner; which handles virtually any question regarding startup programs.

Smart Computing Q&A Board

One of the processes listed is "System" for example; when I check this on a web site that I came across, it states concerning "System" - "Leave it alone". The link for Task List Programs for your interest is:


Through our support service we often come across problems caused primarily by programs running in the background, programs which in most cases start at the same time as Windows. Sometimes these programs are useful and need to be there; quite often, however, they are not needed, and in too many cases they cause severe problems.The pages below are from our in-house database and provide guidance on the usefulness or not of these programs, and removal procedures when recommended.In Windows 95/98/ME you can bring up the Task List by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del. In Windows NT4/2000/XP you bring up the Task List by right-clicking on the Task Bar and choosing "Task Manager"

The WinTasks Process Library

The WinTasks Process Library contains information about all common Windows processes as is continously updated with new information. On this page you can find a subset of the most popular processes listed in WinTasks Process Library. The categories available online are: Security Risks, System Processes, and Applications.
