I have just upgraded to xp on my laptop and i have 32 processes running, however this includes iexplorer. This is eating up my RAM, what the best option for finding out what they are and how to remove them???
I have 512 RAM 325 in use at the mo
but I have mIRC, Trillan, MSN, PowerMenu, ConquerCam, Opera, Mozilla, All Seeing Eye, Notmad Manager, HotSync, CoolMon, tuxtime, Winamp Agent, LogiTech Tray, iTouch.
Damn thats a helluva lot, *goes to kill half of it*
29-32 is what I see most often of XP. If your RAM is being all used up by 32 processes, then I would drop $30 or so for another stick of RAM. MS recommends 128MB minimum, but I think the minimum should be 256MB for decent performance. If you don't really want to buy more RAM though, then check BlkViper as renakuajo suggested and disable services that you don't need. Most services usually don't use up near as much memory as applications that you open though, so you might want to disable apps that you don't frequently use.
