    My IE keep freezing up. I was told by Comcast that I have too many processes running. How can I tell which ones I can safely delete and what happens if I delete the wrong ones?

    Pretty much any process with your username next to it except:

    Video Card Driver
    Mouse Driver
    Printer Driver
    Anti Virus
    Sound Driver
    Anti Spyware.
    The driver in which you connect internet.

    Which if you think about it not many. So i suspect comcast is incorrect unless you have a viral process.

    NOTE: Any process with NETWORK SERVICE, LOCAL SERVICE, SYSTEM should NOT be terminated. Processes like:

    scvhost.exe (atleast 6 of em)
    System Idle Process

    Should not be terminated.
