Hello, I recently (within the last few months) bought an Asus g74sx. A laptop many of you know is designed for gaming. I have noticed it runs very close to 100 processes. I, from my moderate experience in the IT field know that 100 processes is easily 50-60 over normal amount. Should I run a process sweep? or is this expected from a higher end laptop like such. I am not experiencing any problems, its more of a curious question. Does windows 7 have a higher number of system processes?

Leave the processes alone, as they may hinder your system from booting properly. And especially if you are not having any issues.

New laptops often come with preinstalled programs. Some of them have pieces that autostart after bootup.

I suggest using the add/remove programs utility to remove any programs you do not use. Use Google on those programs you're not familiar with to determine whether or not you need them.

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.
