Here's my story: Just got a photographic printer that can handle 13"x17". Use Photoshop to edit these pics. Photoshop is a big piggy when working on files this big.

question 1: which files under "running processes" can I turn off to give extra resources to Photoshop. I've highlighted the ones I THINK I can turn off in red. Any extra processes to end? I will NOT be connected to net at the time therefore don't neet Norton or Zone Alarm etc. I will reboot PC after editing so I get all cancelled programmes back on and running.

question 2: which files highlighted in BLUE can I permanently cancel from running and please give explicit instructions on how to do this? are any of these blue programmes a "must" for WinXP to run properly?

Thanks again for your help. I've attached as BMP. Please change extension to PDF, as I needed to keep as PDF to keep the color formatting. Cut and paste to here removes all formatting.
Cheers, Sandi

GEEEEEEEZ, can the print on that guy's site get any smaller?? I even changed my monitor settings to 800x600 and still can't read it!

[bump] Firstly, as you need the eyes of a hawk to read that guy's website, I can't see it,, and secondly whatever I can download and read from his site is a bit beyond my comprehension (there's a reason why it says Junion Member under my name! *LOL*)

Can anyone review these two lists and just tell me what I can turn off safely to get my PC running bare-bones. Help would be appreciated. Cheers, Sandi
