Re: Remove unwanted programs on HP Computer

Yes! But I choose to load this *stuff*. Most others do also. A base install, with nothing else added, may be about 40 processes. If you are happy using only that which comes with the operating system - go for it.

Easy! Uninstall anything and everything you have no intention of using.

BTW: I have never seen a Vista computer running only 25 processes. Most of
the ones I have seen run between 50 and 70 processes. If you have the proper
horsepower, the number of processes can almost be immaterial. I currently
have 67 processes running and my computer is pretty snappy.

Mine is only 51 - if I cut out all the stuff I choose to load at
startup it would be 35
