I have a desktop pc running Win XP. On startup, I have 3 programs that run which I need. The problem is that over time the pc is starting up slower and slower.
At startup, if I open the Task Manager, there are 41 processes running. I need someone to teach me how to figure out what these processes are and how to stop the unnecessary ones from running at startup. I know how to end a process, but I don't know how to keep it from starting over and over.
The pc is 4 years old now, but still pretty good. Here are the basic specs:
750 MGhz Processor
20 GB Disk
1) Provide instructions on how to find out is necessary and how to keep it from running if it is not.
