At one point I found a list of common processes for XP that described the process and gave recommendations on disabling them and such.

When I say processes I don't just mean the ones that come with XP, but the ones added by installed programs as well (qttask, acrotray, etc).

The list that I had found also gave instructions on removing harder ones like qttask and msn messenger. Does anyone know where I might be able to find this list or similar? I tried googling but came up empty handed, probably my search terms.

nothing in particular, I know that my system is clean, but sometimes newly installed components add processes to one's system that are eating up memory and not really necessary. Like qttask for example, it isn't really spyware but it is there and it eats up a little bit of memory. I would like to reduce these little items.

I found a site about 2 years ago that had a database of processes and it would give you information on the service and suggestions as to whether it was necessary or not. I can't seem to find it anymore and was hoping some one here might now about it.
