View Full Version : Limiting the number of processes running

10-12-2008, 12:08 PM
Hi, folks. This is a question for very savvy users. I am trying to regain some performance on my daughter's Toshiba Satellite laptop, which runs Vista Home Premium. I have read up on limiting processes and tweaked as far as I can, but she's still got half of her 1G RAM used up on start-up and has about 70 processes running. I run XP Pro with about 34.

I am going to post three screen shots of the processes--see my next post for the third one, since I can only upload 2 with a post--hoping that someone can identify some that I can safely disable. The list includes a bunch of Toshiba processes. I have looked them up and it seems that most of them, at least, should not be disabled. But I'm open to reasoned recommendations from knowledgeable users.

Much obliged.

Here's the third screenshot.
