Hi!!!!
I just want to know wich processes running in tne background are tottaly necesary and wich ones are not, because i just have 128 ram and i dont want my pc to be slow.
I have windows xp home and right now i'm just using the internet explorer and the goggledeskbar and my internet conetion is LAN, broadband of 600megas.
I noticed that some processes of my printer are working eventhough i am not using it... for example lexbeces.exe and lexpps.exe, I checked the programs at the startup with aceutilities and i only have running at startup the antivirus KASPERSKY ( kav.exe).

I just formated the computer and before installing some new softwares the list of running processes (the list that appear with CONTROL+ALT+SUPR) WAS VERY SMALL, but now is bigger.... i copied the pocesses runnign right now and here there are :

svchost.exe 332KB
kavsvc.exe 928KB

Hi,

You could try using this link to help you decide: http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php?type=&filter=&count=100&offset=0

Search for the letters before the .exe - example:

lexpps

N lexpps.exe For Lexmark printers. From Lexmark: "This enables bi-directional printing over a peer to peer network. If the printer is connected directly to your PC, the file is not used, (or should not be used) at all". It is known that firewalls can however alert you to "lexpps.exe" requesting server privileges
