My system is running very slow and I noticed I have far too many programs running when I pull up Task Manager -> Processes. I would like to delete many of these parasitic items.
1. Which items, if any, must remain in order for me to make sure my system will reboot and operate?
2. How can I delete the items and also prevent new programs from running without me knowing?

I'd recommend going to the HiJackThis section of this forum. Otherwise, I would need you to post your list of running processes before you start ending them.

Check out this link- on how to disable startup items, and also links to startup list guides to help you decide what to keep and what to remove.

If the system is running slow, also ensure its free from spyware and also do the general cleaning up which includes a disk cleanup and also analyzing for fragmentation/ defragging.
