Hi all, you've propbley heard this one befor but here goes,, i just got a new desktop pc with windows vista home premium as the os, when i took a look at the info in task manager i noticed that it was running 56 processes at the time, a hell of a lot more than my xp sp2 pc which i got down to about 24.
I've done the usuall thing like stop a lot of programs starting up in msconfig,, i cut that down from 24 to 9,, then disabled some services that i know i don't need but it is still running at idle showing 48 processes,, is this normal for vista?
Here are some specs of my pc
Packard Bell iXtreme j8500
intel core 2 duo E6320 1.87 MHz 4mb L2 cash
2048 DDR2 SDRAM
Windows vista home premium Edition 6.006000
Is there any info on which services i can stop or switch to manual like the one for xp by the Black Viper
Thanks all ,,,,,,,, Ian
