Hey in windows 95 and i think 98 you could close all the applications in the background except exploer.exe and systemtray or something. i dont really remeber and i was under the impression that this would help speed up the computer alittle. so my question is if there are certain processes that you cant shut down in xp while closing the rest of them? Thanx
