So when windows xp starts, how many processes do I really need going if all I am going to do is connect to the web through my router? Is there a decent list anywhere describing what each process actually does?
Thanks for the response. i will look into it. I Keep my disks pretty cleaned up, i just don't know how to decipher the processes issue. I don't really have a gripe with performance. Mostly just trying to learn. For example why are 5 different versions of svchost running (3 as system, one as network service, one as local service)? I hope to find the answer in the stuff you listed.
