I would just get rid of some 3rd party ones - not any that are WinXP generated. You seem to have alot of security stuff ! I wonder how much of that is really necessary.

Qtask and jusched are 100% useless I know, they're quicktime and java's dormant programs they put in so they can access your computer from time to time to see if you're updated. Both applications run fine without these processes running.

I think there are a few along the same lines as these, not doing anything but allows access when they need to. Like HP update programs and Nokia stuff.

If I were you seriously, I would set aside a saturday and do a Reinstall of WinXP or repair as y.a. suggests above. I reinstall XP about twice a year myself. It's like spring cleaning.

I'm afraid it is set to zero. Would getting rid of any of those processes make a difference?

Didn't see the second page!! If i reinstalled, would i lose all my stuff such as music etc?

No, you won't loose any of your material. You will have to download again windows update. Also, you might need to re-istall some drivers (not necessarilly). Look at the afore mentioned thread at the top of this forum and follow the instructions carefully.
