Hello. This is my first time on the forum and I have a question that is probably very basic but I'm just curious.

How can I check to see what programs I have running that are unneeded or dupluicates and remove them?

If this is happening will doing so speed up my computer?

Thanks for the help!

download hijackthis to see what loads at start up..you likely do not have duplicates (some programs may be similarly named, but not be dups).

It will make your computer more efficient, which appears to speed it up, but does not actually speed it up
