Unrequired processes

  Eagie 23:35 19 May 2003

I've been having a problem with a game (James Bond Nightfire) which tends to crash quite considerably. Having made sure all my drivers are up-to-date I have now turned my attention to the various processes running the background.

Which processes are essential to run windows xp? I have five instances of svchost.exe running - are these all the same and how to I choose which ones to keep (if any at all)?

Thanks in advance,
