Process Modules are the parts of a running process, so perhaps the more interesting number is the Running Processes

If you have around 30 of these then that is fine, too much above that and you could look to reduce the number of start up items, this would mean that any programme you stop from running at start up would still be able to run, but would take longer to load. Worth considering if you have rarely used applications

Click start then run, type msconfig then press enter, click start up, hold the cursor over any entry to get the full name and location then check it against a start up list to help determine whether it is a vital process

Make a note of anything you remove the tick from so you can reverse it if it affects the running of the PC

Click apply if you change anything, you will then need to reboot and when it gets to the desktop, tick do not start the configuration utility

If you do stop programmes from automatically starting when windows loads, click start, run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit, select all, right click any file, click delete, confirm and all the files here will be deleted then reboot.

This will make sure that Windows does not attempt to load programmes you have stopped with msconfig
