    Average of 59 processes in task manager?

    So I have an average of 59 processes that run in task manager and don't really know what I should/shouldn't have since most people tell me that they normally have around 30. People have told me that I have so many because I have an HP computer... Also, does anyone know which microsoft services I can disable at start up in the msconfig window?

    As GZ suggested in another similar thread you can search google for each process and you'll see what that application does. From there you can pretty much determine what is needed and what isnt

    Opps yeah forgot the OS part, 59 processes in vista seems about normal for me. I'm not running too many extras right now and I'm at 56. If you are using XP then 59 is way to many.

    I'm running XP. Are the services from startup causing so many processes? I think almost all of them are enabled

    The number of processes running is related to start-up programs as well as any software you currently have open. If you don't have any applications started and are just viewing the desktop then XP should have somewhere in the neighborhood of 20-30 processes running.

    Again you'll need to look at each process individually and see what application its related to to see if its needed or not. As for start-up programs this tutorial will be very helpful and is easy to follow How to use MSCONFIG in Windows XP: NetSquirrel.com

    try using HijackThis Analyzer & Tutorial

    paste your log file here and in the analyzer, the analyzer will tell you if you have any bugs running, posting the file here will give us a better idea of what you might have running.

    BTW my computer won't let me update to SP3... It gives me some error about not having sufficient privileges even though I'm logged in as HP_Administrator

    If you don't use all the products, like the AOL related products as well as the yahoo stuff especially the toolbars then I'd suggest uninstalling them. I'd also fix and remove anything the analyzer marks as nasty or unnecessary

    From the looks of it I'd say a lot of the processes you see running are probably related to Norton/Symantec and AOL (assuming you use it).

    Dude, you're running Norton. You're going to have a lot more processes than someone not running Norton. Get used to it.

    ^Different way of putting it.
    There are better solutions then Norton for AV. Lots of good free ones too, that take far less resources too.
    I would check into Avast or AVG. They are what I've used for years now, no virus's yet.

    First... msconfig is for temporary or testing use only It is NOT recommended to use for Global changes by MS.... Go to Run and enter services.msc to change running
    services on a permanent basis. Next go here: Windows XP x86 (32-bit) Service Pack 3 Service Configurations by Black Viper

    This guy is on the money, and has been around for years.... He shows different set-ups and how to set up yer XP to scream...

    I can't update to SP3 for some reason. By using either automatic updates or downloading the file and running it always gives me an error saying that Access is Denied even though I'm the administrator on my computer.

    So when I'm updating, how long does it take to perform clean up? It's been about an hour and it's still at the same spot and I'm not sure if the progress bar is moving anymore.
