????

I'm not certain this is not the right forum for this, though it is perhaps oddly presented.

undun,

what exactly prompted this post/question? Are you sufffering performance issues, or are you just looking for a little something extra?

BY and large, Windows XP is a fairly well tuned OS...you have a few things running that are not needed, but eliminating them will not really increase performance by any appreciable degree

Well i asked because i see alot of programs or things running and i figured i could conserve some memory if the things that are running that i dont need were disabled. my pc is running okay for the abuse it's taken, but i try to keep it in tiptop shape. It was curiosity that spurred this question. Anything to minimize the system resource usage. Thanks for the reply.

BTW:

What forum would you suggest this post to be posted at?

To add to Gerryf's comment:
Mike Lin's StartUpCPL is an easy way to control what starts at boot.
http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml
It puts a start up tab in the Control Panel, and you can experiment with shutting things off. Leave anything Windows or Symantec (Norton)running, but you can safely shut off Quicktime and the Java scheduler, for example.
