I recently asked a question about how to reducemy systems CPU. This is arelated issue so if you want, please review the issue I hadand the troubleshooting steps taken at that thread as well:
I'm still having problems with my system running as fast as it should. This is a decent laptop only about 5months old so it should be running better then it is:
Dell inspiron 1520
Vista Home Premium
2.0 GHz Intel Core duo
120 7200RPM Hard drive
When I start upthe laptop and run task manager I notice70processes running before I actually open anything. If this is too many (as I assume),how can I stop some of theseprocesses from running on start up.
I went into msconfig and tried unchecking the start up items that I obviously don't need at start up,but I still have these 70 or so processes starting up.
I've attached a screenshot of my task manager assoon asI startedmy laptop.
Another contributing factor might be that I only have 28GB's free of 136GB on my C drive. Not sure why my hard drive is almost full.
