I have noticed several processes running on my computer. These add up to about 26 and sometimes even more.

Which ones are necassary? There are some running as SYSTEM processes, some as LOCAL SERVICE or NETWORK SERVICE processes and some running under my user account.

Some of the SYSTEM PROCESSES have mulitple entries running, such as winlogon.exe. Why is this?

It would be great if someone can tell me which ones to close and which ones to keep.

Thanks, Freddie. :tazz:

For XP thirty five or forty is pretty common, and you need to be careful what you kill. All the svchosts are needed, f'rinstance.
