Windows 7: Too many services (?)

The culprit must be Realtek HD audio manager.
Uncheck it and check the response.
I had the same issue and unchecking fixed it.

What exactly the realtek manager does?

If I do so for sticky notes, then I'll loose all the things I wrote on them, wouldn't I?
Retek manager is a console for managing your audio settings. It definitely does not have to load at startup nor run all of the time.

Your sticky notes should still be there if you disable it at startup; you would just need to start it manually.

Realtek HD Control Panel is used to configure the onboard Realtek HD sound on your motherboard, ie when you plug in speakers, you use the Realtek HD Audio Control panel to configure the onboard sound. But you can configure speaker settings from the windows sound control panel also. Disabling the startup entry shouldnt have any effect on your sound.

Also, for sticky notes, they are saved in a file called stickynotes.snt located in C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes (Its a hidden file). All your notes are there in a single file (unless you delete any note).

Thanks for the tip.

So for the realtek, if I want to plugin my headphones, I will have to manually set the the sound to work only for the headphones? or it will play the sound on speakers as well?

You can create a shortcut to Realtek on your desktop. When you need the console, click on the shortcut to open it. You may already have a shortcut to it in Start>Programs.

No no..we are talking about configuration. If you connect ur headphone, sound flows from it, ceasing the speakers. But if you want to apply some effects for it like Equaliser, Suuround, Environment settings, you can do it thru the HD Manager of Realtek.

After booting the system I usually have about 28 processes (services) running.
Most functions are instantaneous. I do have to do some things manually, for the most part I find that preferable.
