Is there any software out there that analyzes your processes in windows7 and removes unnecessary ones that are running i have a list a mile long in task manager and not sure what should be there and what shouldnt Thanks
I haven't seen any. Even if you could get hold of one, I'm sure your definition of "unnecessary" and it's will be different. You may be better off just looking at what is in your "startup" folder and removing those.
It's not an OEM system like Dell or HP that would have a bunch of 'trial-ware' or OEM specific utility programs.
So yes, I think you're on the high end of things.
Im not an IT Pro and my system is running about 42 processes just now.
Hawkeye mentioned checking the Startup folder (included the Public and Default accounts) in the Users folder.
Also check for any programs you've authorized to 'Run at Windows Startup'. Some IM programs would be an example.
Check the 'Show Hidden Icons' list which is the little white triangle on the Taskbar.
