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???

What about msconfig??

Thanks help appreciated

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.
