Do about what? I have 57 processes running on a brand new install. You have more stuff installed. What is it about running 92 processes that concerns you?

i currently have 72 processes running and mine is just fine

if you are worries about possible malware then you could run malwarebytes anti malware to see if you are infected.if so post the log in the aii forum

i would get rid of limewire as that is full of viruses

It could be why it is slow, but then again, we are talking about a laptop and not a desktop; I don't know what the specs are for your system, but laptops tend to be less powerful. As far as having multiple instances of some processes, yes, it is normal for some of those. They are system processes. In other words, it is hard to definitively say why your laptop is slow without knowing the specs, but you have applications for Apple running, process explorer (can't imagine why this should be running), Yahoo mail advisor, and a bunch of other stuff that doesn't need to be running all of the time. I use IM, but there is no need for it to be on all the time. I start it when I need it, then close it when I am done.
