Hi,
This is my first post, so hopefully I am following proper guidelines!

I have a Sony Vaio, that is about 5 years old, with many quirks.
I am wondering if I have unnecessary Processes running that aren't needed

I can't seem to copy and paste them, so here are some high Mem usage ones:

50 processes running/ CPU usage between 1%-10%

Firefox.exe
System
TeaTimer.exe 91,736k
svchost.exe
*explorer.exe
iexplorer.exe 19,832k
iexplore.exe
hpqste08.exe
Evteng.exe
QBCFMonitorservice
S24EvMonitorservice 10,980k

*My IE is currently working on my laptop, doesn't open.

What happens if I just end some processes?

Thank your for your time!

Attached is the Hijack This! File I just scanned, assuming it is relevant to this topic.

Thanks very much!

1) I don't know what s24EVmonitorservice is

2) What problems are you having with your system?

3) How much ram is installed?

4) TeaTimer is a known resource hog and personally I always recommend disabling it. I'm also not a fan of Spybot - it's old school.
