Hi There. I am new to this forum, so I hope this is the correct place to post this question. If not, I apologize.
I have had some recent "issues" with my laptop, some that will definitely belong in other forums on this site, but this is one I think belongs here and couldn't find any other information doing a "search".
As the subject states, if I open up Windows Task Manager, and click on Processes; in the lower left hand corner, it seems to currently go from showing that 94 or 95 (actually, right now it has changed to 91 and I have done nothing different since starting this thread) processes are running while I only count 32 or 33 (it changes as I look at the screen) listed in the window that lists them all. I do not really understand computers, and have to wonder if these 90+ processes are slowing things down, and would love to know what I can permanently turn off from automatically running to help boost performance. I am going to "snip" a shot of the Task Manager window showing this so you can see what I mean. Or at least I am going to try to since there is a button that says "Insert Image".
Now, it says 97 processes are running, just from selecting the "snipping" tool. See, I really don't know what I am doing.
And now I see that clicking the "insert image" button just puts img in brackets with the cursor blinking in between so I have no idea how to attach the image, sorry.
With all this said, if someone can tell me how to attach the screen shot so that I can be told what can and can't be turned off, I would appreciate it.
Thanks, and have a great holiday weekend..........for those of us in the USA.
If it helps any, my computer is an HP Pavillion dv7-1267cl Laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit with 4gb Ram, 500gb HDD, and Blu-Ray DVD Player/DVD Burner.
