I just got my new PC. It looks like I've got about double the number of processes running(compared to my old PC) when I open the Task Manager. I have no idea which programs are necessary (exept for obvious ones like Explorer), and which ones are trash software bundled with the PC and set to run whenever I start the PC. There's just a ton of stuff I've never seen before on my old PC with XP.
My new PC is a HP A1620N, and the OS is XP Media Center 2005.
Could someone possibly help walk me through determining which processes are trash and shutting down/disabling them?
