Running processes cleanup

By Greenthinks ·
Is it true that you only really need like 3 running processes on xp?
I have about 50 - 100 processes running on windows task manager and I dont fully understand their uses or exactly how to manage them.
A little help please.

where did you get 3?

the lowest I could ever get xp down to was 20 processes.... and that was pushing it.

On average I would say that 50-70 processes in the background is about normal... I would start with a malware/spyware scan and make sure nothing is malicious, then you could go into MSconfig and start disabling things from starting up. Be careful you don't disable your AV or any MS related processes.
