I am currently trying to make a batch file that kills all unneeded processes, then loads just this single full screen program, so all or most of the memory's attention is pointed towards this program because it's all I will be using when this program is active.
I googled around a bit because I am not extremely familiar with microsoft commands, but I will be using this command for each process I need to kill:
taskkill /f /im "Program.exe"
And this command for the single program I need to run:
And then when I close my single program (XBMC.exe) I am going to need the batch file to automatically start up all the processes/tasks I ended/killed, so I'm back to exactly where I was before. So correct me if I'm wrong, my batch file should look something like this for example:
taskkill /f /im "PROCESS_1.exe"
taskkill /f /im "PROCESS_2.exe"
taskkill /f /im "PROCESS_3.exe"
taskkill /f /im "PROCESS_4.exe"
taskkill /f /im "PROCESS_5.exe"
NET SEND %ComputerName%
I put the net send at the end just to show a popup so I would know when the batch file has completed, if you know of a better "batch file finished notification", please let me know
Also, I am not completely sure on which processes I can absolutely kill and load back up whenever I please, So if anyone is willing to go the extra mile for me and yes or no all my processes, that would be extremely appreciated. I am mostly aware on the program processes I, myself downloaded like Firefox, xWidget, Startkiller, etc. But here is my complete list if I just went into Task Manager right now:
explorer.exe (Windows Explorer
dwm.exe (Desktop Windows Manager)
flashplayerplugin_11_7_700_224.exe (Adobe Flash Player 11.7 r700)
plugin-container.exe (Plugin Container for Firefox)
NDSTray.exe (ConfigFree TM Task tray menu)
MSASCui.exe (Windows Defender User Interface)
flashplayerplugin_11_7_700_224.exe (Any explaination as to why I have 2 of the same processes always running?)
xwidget.exe (Widget Engine by xwidget.com)
taskeng.exe (Task Scheduler Engine)
SynTPEnh.exe (Synaptics Touchpad Enhancements)
egui.exe (ESET GUI)
RtHDVCpl.exe (HD Audio Control Panel)
igfxsrvc.exe (igfxsrvc Module)
mbamgui.exe (Malwarebytes Anti-Malware)
CFSwMgr.exe (ConfigFree Switch Manager)
hkcmd.exe (hkcmd Module)
IAAnotif.exe (Event Monitor User Notification Tool)
TPwrMain.exe (TOSHIBA Power Saver)
taskeng.exe (Any explaination as to why I have 2 of the same processes also always running?)
igfxpers.exe (persistence Module)
igfxtray.exe (igfx Tray Module)
SynTPHelper.exe (Synaptics Pointing Device Helper)
StartKiller.exe (StartKiller Application)
TOSCDSPD.exe (CD/DVD Drive Acoustic Silencer)
And lastly, another question I have to ask, is do I really need things like TOSHIBA Power Saver, Synaptics Touchpad (I use mouse most of the time) Flash Player Plugin, Windows Defender User Interface (Is it just the visual part of the program?), etc, running 24/7? If you could have elaborate information on some processes that are necessary, that would be great and I sincerely appreciate anyone who has some answers to offer, thanks again guys.
