task manager - what do they all mean ?

  chrisakaad 10:25 24 Apr 2008

Can anyone out there point me in the right direction - when I open task manager there is a list of 40+ items in the process list - how can I find out what they are all for and which ones can I disable without causing problems to my system - thanks

Best not deleting any.If you have nothing running,Under CPU System Idle Process should be showing about 97% this is normall.If anything else using up the CPU Google it or let us know if you think that you have a problem.

thanks one and all for the help and guidance - I'll get to grips with this computer stuff yet - think I'll take your advice 'buteman' and leave things be
