Excessive Running Programs

  B33J 20:32 18 Dec 2006

My computer has been running a little slower than usual recently and been taking a long time to start. I recently had a look at the running programs and I have 76 running in the background, using up over 600 mb of memory.

Is there some sort of utility I can use to scan my runnig processes, tell me exactly what they are and if they are of any use so that I can determine whether or not I can switch them off?

Many thanks,

Try click here or

Start/run and type MSCONFIG,select startup and remove ticks from everything except your AV and Firewall and if you have a realtime spyware scanner leave this ticked and reboot.
