Lots of processes

Ok so I just got windows vista installed and I like it but it runs a ton of process and with my zone alarm security suite running on start up and the rest of it. It takes a long time to boot up. So does anybody have any tips to getting rid of some process. I mean 40 process is ridicious my xp was only running 29. I mean I no how to turn them off I just dont know what to turn off. Thanks for any help.

Hi again I noticed that I was running 12 scvhost.exe process. Is this completley necessary and if not how can I remove them.

Hello, Windows Vista uses way more memory than XP. I think the verdict is out on whether or not this is justified. But there are still ways to speed up Vista besides getting new hardware.

Check out this article.

Hope this helps!
