I am trying to stop processes running as this is slowing my computer down considerably. I have tried to do this with Task Manager but when I right click on a process the message "operation could not be completed, access is denied" Can anyone tell me an alternate way to stop these processes please.
Thanks
Iris

To fix this issue, you just have to do some required changes in Task Manager settings.

1. Set Priority
In Windows Task Manager window > Select Program any program by right clicking > Set priority > Below Normal

Sometimes system processes, such as services, it won't let you change. Firstly, pick "show all user's processes" which will ask for permission, but reopen task manager as an administrator, so some more processes will be changeable. But again, not all - some Windows will stop you changing the priority.

Alternatively, try going to http://www.sysinternals.com and downloading "Process Explorer" - similar to Task Manager, but more features.

Hope this helps you...

Thank you for that. I took the alternative and it worked.
