Hi All,

Just a quick note to introduce myself.

I found this site whilst checking out some of the processes running on my computer.

My computer is a real mess and I am worried that it might die any day with all my photos on it.

I am fine with working our how to use new software etc but the insides and stuff running in the background are a mystery to me.

Hoping to find new knowledge here.

Good luck :thumbsup:

Making a backup copy of your photos, if possible to a disk that you can store safely elsewhere than beside your computer is something you should seriously consider, especially if these are family photos.

If you have Spybot Search and Destroy on your computer, it has a set of tools in addition to its spyware functions. You can find these by clicking on Mode and chosing 'advanced." Under "Tools" you will find one called System Startup that can be used to manage your startup applications in conjunction with BC's excellent Startup List (a database of startup applications categorised into necessary, optional, and unneeded).
