    hiya, I have absolutely no idea when it comes to computers, I can turn it on and do what I need to do but that's about it lol.
    my computer is being really slow lately, I started the task manager to see what was running and there are 84 processes running, I don't know what any of these are or if I need them all.
    have tried google-ing but to be honest it's very confusing. any help would be appreciated thanks
