Processes using up system resources?
    #2834241 - 06/27/04 07:49 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

When I open Windows Task Manager and view the processes, I have 55 running. Is that draining my system and slowing performance?

I've noticed that the longer this computer has run, the worse the performance has gotten. Should I have that many running and what can I do, just shut them down or end them?

That doesn't sound too excessive, I have 50 processes running.

Don't just start randomly ending processes but you can run msconfig.exe to see if there are any programs or services you don't want to start automatically.

55 seems quite excessive in my opinion. Using XP, I can have about 25 - 35 running at any given time. I bet you have some useless crap always running which is probably slowing things down.

do this:

run>type "services.msc" and compare what you have running with this page: http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/service411.htm

Also, open the Task Manager and see what all those are with this page: http://www.answersthatwork.com/Tasklist_pages/tasklist.htm

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

God Windows sucks. I just started about a couple hundred processes on my Linux box for the hell of it to see what it would do. After everything loaded,it was still stable as hell. I finally exploited a known bug and things started getting a bit slow,so I just killed that process and everything's good as new. Did I mention I was burning a CD while I did this?

is that 47 of good stuff or bad stuff?

I have 31 with firefox, trillian chat, mIRC, firewall, protowall, filesharing, acid pro, winamp, thunderbird, hotpopper, antivirus, system meter, rainlendar, objectdock + all the essential system processes.

If you visit the links (esp blackviper), I bet you can reduce the processes (saving system resources + making your system more secure) considerably.
