Too many processes/services on Vista

  1. Hi,

    I got a new Dell laptop with Vista. And there are just too many processes/services running.

    I'm sure there's lots of stuff that is unnecessary, so I was wondering how I can check which ones to keep and which not to. Right now there are 80 running processes, its using 1.2 GB memory with a physical memory usage of 39%.

    So how can I get started to identify what's needed and what's not?
