I think the reason why my PC runs slow is because the of the amount of processes I have when I look in the task manager. I know I need some of them but surely NOT 32!. Does anyone know how I can (if possible) reduce them in lamens terms! All help would be appreciated!
I also have 37 ... all are needed. some are used by Windows such as svchost , system idle process some are applications iexplore psfree.exe. I dont really want shit loads of popups so i will keep the latter for instance.
you could always start by killing the process iexplore.exe .. maybe that one is not needed perhaps... i've never quite worked out what that one does... :O
Thanks for all the help. After checking on the WINTASK 4 site I see I have SVCHOST.EXE (5 times on task manager) and ISASS.EXE it appears these are viruses? I've tried deleting the files but all I get is "cannot delete file SVCHOST access is denied" I have Norton 2003 and Mcaffee Firewall. Any ideas how I can get rid of these programs?
