First, what a few of those files are:
oodag.exe-An application that will run defrag when the computer is idle.
Dkservice.exe-Controls the Diskeeper Service. Diskeeper is hard-drive defragmenting software.
It would seem to me, that these files are related. If you have installed Diskeeper, and you like the service that it provides, then I would leave these two files alone. If you do not recognize the program, then remove it (START->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs). In some cases, you may have to remove them in Safe Mode, which I would recommend that you remove them in Safe Mode anyway.
On the other files, I would not try to alter or end them. These are needed applications to keep XP running. If you are concerned about the amount of RAM that it is using, then you can d/l a RAM program.
Some people like them, and other believe that they are a waste of time and space. The one that I have been using for years is Rambooster. It runs as an application minimized in the taskbar. When you see that you are running low on memory, you can open it, and click 'optimize'. The only thing that it is really doing is just erasing data from RAM based on frequency of usage. One of the main benefits that I see using this, is that you can optimize it, while running other programs, and it will not slow the computer down, compared to haveing the OS do it.
BTW-how much RAM do you have anyway?
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.
