I am operating Windows XP Professional. While using the Task Manager I clicked on Processes and was advised that there are 27 processes running at that time. Most, almost all, were System, but there were also some Network Service and Local Service and also User processes.
It also adviced that CPU usage was 100%.
I had no programs running at that time.
Do I need all these processes running?
Is this slowing down my computer?
If so how do I know whch I can close down?
Any assistance or guidance in this are would be appreciated.
