I have so many processes running in my task manager. I would like to know how many I should have. Is it a bad thing to have so many running? Does it effect my computers operation?

As long as there are processes running by programs that you are sure of and your PC can handle them, you shouldn't have any problems. Are you experiencing any? If your PC is running abnormally, then you may have a malware problem. If you suspect a malware problem, please read the pinned instructions in the Malware Section.
