Windows XP - minimum running in taskmanager

  Carafaraday 13:59 10 Oct 2004

In 98 I used to ctr/alt/delete until only the bare minimum was left running - systray, explorer and one other I think it was. Could someone tell me what would be the minimum for XP?

I am unable to delete a temp file - called mon000 or something similar. It is a text file and seems to be something to do with inability to print to a network (I don't have network!). It won't let me delete as it says it is in use - so I want to stop the use so I can zap it.

Ok - the file is now gone but it hasn't sorted by original problem - will start another post though.
