Recently, my Dell Inspiron E1505 perished in a rough death of an 8 foot fall.
For college, I purchased a Sony Vaio VGN NS240E. So far I am in love with it.
A little problem I have is I am running 99 Processes. I have used HijackThis little to no result from it.
I am comming from a computer that ran 24 processes at its peak to one that is 4x that. I can't play Counter Strike Source and I do meet all of the requirements to run and play it comfortably. My peak FPS was 15.
I am running Vista naturally and just want to get that extra boost. I was surprised to see the amount of crap that Sony puts on their computers. Its almost rediculous.
Any help is appreciated.
