    hello all. boy does reinstalling XP ever kick butt. Ive been enjoying the last couple of months of smooth,and speedy use. Thanks to all who may have helped me too accomplish said task! Once U get the squeaky clean install, I think its a lot easier to keep that way??? So to the question on my mind, does anybody know where I might find a explanation of the various processes that are running at any time. I know of a couple of sites that do the same for file extensions, ie tell you what a file does,what program its associated with etc. I have found a few posts referring to a few unnecessary(for most of us) processes. Thought this would make an interesting post so please share the wealth, If we could get a bunch of explanations(kept SIMPLE), perhaps they could be compiled into a list/article that would be pretty handy to my mind. Well lets see how it goes, thanks beforehand of course, Graiskye (y) (y)
