I have a pretty old (4 years) desktop pc which despite regular defrag and system cleanups has gotten slower lately.
I have tidied the startup to just a few items ( dlsagent, avgnt, qttask, groovemonitor, ctfmon & windows search)which I think are all essential, or low maintenance. When I check my processes however,even when I am just using email, I seem to have ieexplore.exe showing 3 times (166,000kb, 17,000 kb and 9,000 kb) plus explorer at 17,000kb.
Is this right, or do I have spyware etc hiding ?
