I usually leave my computer on for a day as it has music and files that other users around the house may need. If I start up the computer for the first time in a day and come back a coule hours later the system takes a very long time to get out of the screen saver and continues to act very slowyl. When I press Ctrl+ALT+Del I see that a program called 'mixer.exe' is using 111,000+k of my memory usage.

So basically my question is: what is mixer.exe? I think it is some type of sound program but I never use it. I always end task and the rest of the day the computer never hangs up on me.

What I find is it a Media Mixer - C-Media produce audio chipsets that are often found on popular motherboards with on-board audio. Provides System Tray access to change audio settings. You should be able to disable it using MSCONFIG and deselecting it.

Ah, thanks. It's been disabled. Now, I have a bunch of other items in the MSCONFIG menu that are listed mutliple times, how would I remove them from that list?
