Question about Computers & Internet
You obviously have a lot of processes running in the background. Here is a link for the minimum processes you need for win xp:
To see how many processes you have running do this:
1. Place your mouse on the task bar and right click
2. Pick task manager
3. you will see a tab that says processes. Look at the bottom of the page on the left side. It will say Processes : #. Anything over the above links # 10, are programs running in the background that you do not need to have running all the time.
When you install ANY program to your computer, be sure to read every page that comes up when installing. If there is an option/check mark that says something like: "start at windows start up" or "run when windows starts", uncheck it. You do not need to have anything but the operating system files load up when your computer starts. Whatever you download will still be there, it just wont be in the background running taking up memory and resources. When ever you need whatever you downloaded, just go to that program and open it.
With the exception of your virus protection, you should keep these processes as low as possible.
TO CLOSE PROCESSES YOU DON'T NEED;
1. On the processes tab as stated above, right click on the processes you don't need, then hit "end process". You should see the number at the bottom go down. Don:t worry, if it is an operating system file that you should not end, it will not let you.
Next time you start your computer, these will all come back UNLESS, you find out what each process goes to, go to that program and find where the option to start at windows start up is and uncheck it.
This should shut down your computer a lot faster and run faster too. Good luck
