    What's the best way to maintain and change the processes that are started on booting? Right now I have a gazillion processes running (according to Coolmon), which, annoyingly, does not start at boot. I don't know what half of these processes do, but they are using approx 131mb of 256 mb RAM ie Quite a lot! :confused:

    Go to Start\Run\msconfig
    Then 'startup'. See what's going on in there. Untick what you don't want.

    list of services can be found at http://www.blkviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm

    and to add something to startup, just put a shortcut to it in your start up folder loacated at:

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    *"All Users" can be replaced by your login name if you only want it to start when you logon
