Closing down background programmes

I need to shut down background programmes to allow me to use as much of my PC's performance to edit and burn video. I've downloaded EndItAll2 but just cannot get my head around it...does anyone know which programmes I am safe to shut down and perhaps more importantly those I must keep running to still use the editing and burning software by a Ctrl+Alt+Del key press?

As pointed out, the best possible way is always to avoid programs loading at the startup. You can remove all the applications from Startup (except Firewall & AV).

Also, if at any point of time when the system is up and running, you want to free up resource by closing running applications and services then use the Processxpnt utility available for download from,

It shows all the process/threads. Any application thread can be closed (do not close system services, if u r not sure of it).

Good Luck!!!
