62 Processes Running in XPPro!
Opened the Administration user in XP MCE2005[XPP] and screen froze.
Task Manager tells me I have 62 processes running.
Go to RUN>> msconfig>Services.
ALL boxes are checked and most are running.
Recently ran a Complete and updated Deep Virus/Malware scan and only a tracking cookie shows.

You do know you have to untick the boxes to stop them running right?

Bring up Task Manager and look in the Proces tab to see how many.
Go to the following link to try and figure out which ones you can live without:

When it stops, you can actually watch the pilot start sweating.

MS System Restore won't, well, restore.
Third party Utility did go back to month earlier OS settings. Neither IE nior Chrome would open.
Undid the Restore.
Had tried to download HO MyDisplay lately, but HP would not recognize my HP LCD monitor--probably because its de-Branded.
Also a new KB was recently installed without its own CD drivers..Has the usual media buttons..volume, standby, etc.
Had trouble once before with XP pro after new KB.
Stilll..What the heck do I need 45 --65 proceesses for just booting up?
