Aside from the two hogging your resources (_avgas.exe and waol.exe), a lot of those are normal running processes. If you want to check them go here: TASK LIST PROGRAMS (including WinNT4/2000/XP/2003/Vista Services)

Gaining control of your processes is perhaps the best way to really begin to understand your system. The better it is understood, the more useful (and fun) it is.

It would be a simple matter for one of us to simply say "Do this. Stop this. You don't need that." But it is your computer, and you have your own way of using it. Your needs and mine may be quite different.

To this end I posted a basic guide on Vox: http://doc1101.vox.com/
I have included web addresses of useful tools and information sites to help you manage your system. The 'links' are not live.(clickable) Copy and paste the URLs (http:\\......) to your browser address bar to view the referenced pages.

As you progress I'm sure that you will have specific questions. Feel free to post back to the forum with them and we will help you refine your control to suit your needs. Have fun 'getting under the hood.'
