91 Processes right after startup???? help.

Hey guys. I've noticed lately that my computer hasn't been as fast as before. So I took a peek at task manager to see if theres much memory being taken up. about 1.71 Gb is being used up ( I am running 7 and have 6 Gb total). It says about 21% so im not worried. But for processes it is at 91 right after start up. I went to msconfig and have about 7 or 8 options selected that start up when the pc starts up. Any idea whats going on? Thanks.

Memory usage is not a problem, ignore it.
The problem is you have so much crap starting up with the computer.
Either, uninstall those applications you do not need or remove them from start up.

Some good info here on using msconfig with Windows 7: How to use MSCONFIG in Windows 7: NetSquirrel.com

91 is a bit high. 50 to 60 would be within the norm. And as the guys said, reduce the startups to those you really want. There are very few you really need - unless you put them there.

I find WinPatrol ( BillP Studios - WinPatrol ) the easiest tool to manage the startups. Just disable them, you can always reenable if you change your mind. If you are not sure, post a picture of the WinPatrol startup tab and we'll have a look.

Try Soluto.
Quite interesting software, gives a lot of feedback about processes starting in the system (hidden ones especially).
Gives detailed statistics - how long each process takes to boot, percentage of total boot time, gives recommendations and statistics what other users did.

Alright thanks guys. I've opened up maconfig and deselected almost all but 7-8 one being wifi and such. But I'm not home right now so once I get a chance I'll download winpatrol and take a screen shot for you. Thanks a lot guys. To attach a photo should I zip it or use a host such as photobucket?

Just use the paperclip in the posting window. Then you can upload the snip.

Why do you need WinPatrol to take a screen shot? You do it with the Snipping Tool that comes with Win 7. Click start, type snip then click on Snipping Tool.

i don't need winpatrol for the screenshot. Winpatrol can easily manage the startups - it is easier than the little msconfig window. For snipping I use Jing or Faststone Capture anyhow.
