This is my very first post on this forum.


My situation is:


When I run the task manager, and let him show me all my current processen. I get the running processes

of my account. But the public user account also has quite some processes running.


My question is:


Is there a way to delete the public user account / stop the public user account from running processes.

Since I am the only user of this pc, it is quite unneccesary for having a public user account with running processes.


Thanks in advance.

 If you click the Services tab, you can right-click any items in the Status column and change them, if that's what you want to do.  I'd strongly suggest you make a full system backup to an external hard drive before you start changing things though.  Personally I just upgraded from 4 to 8 GB of RAM and left well enough alone.  Disabling some of those tasks could cause unpredictable results you might have a hard time dealing with.  :orange:


Good luck. 

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
