I have been using Win7 for some time and prefer it to the others.  I have limited the number of backround programs running at startup via MSCONFIG, but I have lots of processes running that I don't want.  I have to go into processes and stop them all.  Is there some sort of script that I can run that would stop them all at once?

My question would be...why do you desire to stop any processes that are currently running in your Windows?  What problems currently do you see...with your system?


FWIW:  Many processes appearing in Task Manager...are initiated as the result of installing software and have nothing at all to do with the proper functioning of Windows.


And...msconfig is not a startup manager...it's a tool designed for troubleshooting.  If you want to manage/control startup items, I would suggest taking a look at the Autoruns for Windows tool.  I further suggest that you read the tools documentation before using it.
