Below is a screenshot of my Task Manager. I wanted to know what, if anything, can be discontinued or is not necessary. Also, how to go about deleting these from the TM so they will not appear there again. Thanks in advance.

jqs.exe - Java Quick Starter (makes Java apps start quicker). Go into Control Panel, Java, Advanced, Miscellaneous, untick Java Quick Starter (You will need to redo this on every Java update)
spoolsv.exe if you don't use a printer. Admin tools, services, print spooler
ctfmon.exe - Open notepad and paste the following into it. Save it with a .reg extension. Double click it to merge it into the registry. You will be prompted. Click yes. Reboot or kill ctfmon.exe.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; disable ctfmon

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"ctfmon.exe"=-

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IMM]
"LoadIMM"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF]
"Disable Thread Input Manager"=dword:00000001

Based on a quick Google search, devldr32.exe seems to be a Creative sound card process. Supposedly for your rear speakers. If you don't have rear speakers I would disable it with Autoruns.

I disable alg.exe with no ill effects in services(Application Layer Gateway) but not sure if this is right for you.
