    How many processes should be running for WinXP home? My count is now up to 28, and it looks like the CPU usage is going up. Some things I don't think I can help... the HP photosmart 130 printer (xmas present) added 2 processes, and the wireless keyboard/mouse (also xmas) added another process. But is there any way to tell what really isn't needed so I can get rid of it?

    Right now I've got 27, but that's with AIM, IRC clients, IE, internet connection, etc. With nothing running, I have 18.
