Get rid of everything under Paid but Zclient,taskmgr,explorer and any WM (Windows Media) stuff you want to keep open. I don't know when the system processes were last modified,so I can't tell you what to get rid of-it could be something important.

EDIT: Don't listen to me. You'll probably shut down something you don't want.

Just make sure you don't close anything under System.

Why do you want to close those programs anyway?

They gobble up system resources and cause memory leaks.
