Hey everyone,

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.

Hi there :)

The easiest thing you can do is open your Control Panel from the start menu, click on Add/Remove Programs (if you don't see it you might have to click on "Classic View" on the left) and Remove anything in there you don't need that came bundled with your computer.

Also, check out WinPatrol - A program that can be used to manage your startup programs. You can use it to disable programs that start up with your computer, and it will warn you if there's ever a program that tries to add itself to the startup lists.
