    Hello, I must tell you I'm a beginner. So bare with me.:eek:
    Ive just purchased a new Compaq-Presario Windows Vista Home Premium. SP 1Proccessor Intel(R) Pentium (R) CPU 2.80GHz, 2800 Mhz, 2 Cores, 2 Logital Processors. System 32.
    It came preinstalled with alot of programs anyways. I purchased it this year Feb.2008.
    Task Manager shows :eek: 100 processors running, CPU is 8%-19%. Not high I guess for as many processes running. :confused:
    I would like to only have at least half of these to run. :eek: Running Physical Memory 75%, which I dont want either.
    :confused:This can't be normal.
    I need some assistance in this and need to end some of the least important ones. Don't know where to start first?:eek:
    Thank You For Any Help!

    Windows Vista is going that have a LOT more process running than the ones you had in XP.
    You need to find out what each is and remove them ones NOT needed form the startup.

    It would help if you were to post your listing.

    Hello,
    You were saying in your response to my post, was that it would help if I listed all of them? Like the 100 processes going that are running? Thought that would of been alot to list here, if so. But will go through them at start-up as well like you suggested. Thanks for the suggestion.
