  1. How many processes does XP NEED to run.
    My HP Pavillion uses 36 processes requiring 145 MB.

    Does anyone know how to reduce this number.

    What is iPod.exe and is it needed? 4MB
    iTuneshelper.exe how do I diable? 3MB
    I think the biggest on is svchost.exe at 36MB

    are all these required and how do I stop them from starting at boot up?
