    Agreed! This topic is almost as boring as reading your post. Now I'm depressed too.

    do some of you guys realize that having more tabs open does not affect the amount of process running? I am running 100 right now. I think a bunch is from the applications that are on my G19 keyboard! I love this thing! I can watch youtube videos on my keyboard!

    Well, I certainly do. This I mentioned in post #49.

    When you said "keyboard", at first I thought you meant a musical instrument. If pianos had video screens, nobody would ever practice.

    Chrome creates a new process for each tab.

    97 for me. But I am on a notebook, which have some of annoying drivers running all the time e.g. touch pad, some HP cloud **** (which I usually terminate) + LS + FPR + IRS and Two sets of Graphic drivers i.e. Intel HD + ATI Catalyst etc. Also I noted that FF plug-in container now creates separate process.

    Just in case here is the picture as well :p

    60 with chrome open, but I also have rainmeter, rocketdock and MSI Afterburner running constantly, unlike the 'old' days, this has no effect on my system whatsover.

    67, which would have driven me crazy back when I was on XP with 2 gigs of DDR memory. With 8 gigs of DDR 3... doesn't phase my system and I'm only using about 1 gig of what I've got. I still want to knock down some of the useless processes, but I haven't bothered to check them since they don't really bog down the system.

    Well if I turn everything I want to you off (I have an Asus Crosshair IV, It comes with alot of start up options!) then I can get as low as 52, but with Firefox open and all the rest of the stuff I use it sits around 64 Proccesses :)

    Damn good weekend question. I'm running 57 right now. And I know I can shut down quite a few of those. In fact...leave me alone, I'm working on this. :)
  23. 101 now (2 Firefox and 1 Opera)
