is there a way I can post an image of all processes that are running in the backround or at startup. I know I have some programs running in backround slowing down my pc. I've gone in and got rid of some of the excess antispy and virus programs. I had like 2 or 3 of each and kept one of each. I also deleted programs I don't use or haven't used in long time or that mar have been installed secretly when instaliing somthing i wanted. or perhaps installed whan I opened email. If I can post an image of programs instead of listing each on individually this would save a ton of time..any recommendations on good snapshot programs which are practical and easy to use......thanx

PS: I'm doing all this as my pc is starting to run really slow.

You can download a program called Autoruns...install same...and then, using print screen, take a snapshot of the Logon tab.

AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx

That should do it for startups.

You can take as many screenshots of Task Manager and the Process tab...as you need...to see/illustrate all processes running.

As for Autoruns, you can save it as a text file:
Go File>Save, and save it as AutoRuns.txt file.

As for running processes...
Download, install, and run Whats Running.
Click on Take snapshot in the left pane.
New pop-up window will open.
Click on Save snapshot, and save the file as snap (.xml extension will be added automatically) to know location.

Zip the file, and attach it to your next reply.
