    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

    [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
