I recently did a complete system restore using the recovery disks, but the computer is now running with 57 processes, and taking up more cpu than it needs to. I will include here a list of the processes running. I just need to know which of these can be removed to free cpu.

IEXPLORE.EXE
PavBckPT.exe

THe list does. You just didn't try to use it. Granted it involves too much scrolling to find the file in question.

download process explorer

from here ... http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...ssexplorer.mspx

dont kill any processes

run the program...find the process using up cpu
right click on it
click on properties
click on threads tab
just observe the next window
watch on how it changes
post the dll or which one is causing the most cpu usage
it can be determined if its needed

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

try one more thing
try disabling automatic windows updates
go to control panel/automatic windows update/turn it off/click ok

Ok i found the problem. Ocassionally, panda antivirus runs a process called

PsImSVc.exe

It has two processes related to it

SPIMREAL.exe
AVCIMAN.exe

This loads occasionally and takes about 17% of the cpu. It seems unnecessary. Any way to get rid of it right in panda's settings?

To be precise, AVCIMAN.exe is the one thats taking the cpu.

you can either let your av software hog resources and run real time or use it manually, trying to get it to not load with windows
and use it when you deem necessary

either option has it's benefits and costs

it's kind of a cake and eat it too problem

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

this exe file belongs to panda antivirus...... http://www.file.net/process/avciman.exe.html

are you using panda antivirus

if not its ok to stop this process

if you are using panda

here are your options...have the malware experts help you out

download....... install.....and update this superantivirus

http://www.snapfiles.com/get/SuperAntiSpyware.html

your other option is to change antivirus altogether

you could use avast its free

http://filehippo.com/download_avast_antivirus/

and at this homepage of freebies there are some firewalls to choose from

I have found nothing more user friendly for controlling startup processes than WinPatrol: http://www.winpatrol.com/

Use Process Explorer to identify processes and determine which programs they belong to. Here is how I configure it, along with a list of good places to check out the processes themselves. Each site has a place to simply 'paste' the process and search: http://www.5starsupport.com/ipboard/index.php?showtopic=8275

For more of what I have learned, see my Vox: http://doc1101.vox.com/
