    Hi

    i was noticing how many processes i have at startup. e.g. itunes helper and my digital camera process. concidering i dont use itunes much i dont need it running all the time and also i dont have an ipid so i dont need the ipod service running.

    whats a good piece of software that i can use to stop these from starting up and telling me if they needed or not?

    i got a 3200 amd 64 bit processer 1gb ram and the number of processes after i log in is 86 is this alot more than most people here?

    thanks in advance

    Many softwares do this already. Your uninstaller, a lot of registry cleaners, system suites.. You can use Hijackthis to control your start up. Thats a small download and a 0$ price.

    Mem lists the 2 best IMO. I rely heavily on Starter, using Autoruns only once in a while. At home, I have around 30 processes after boot and at work it's 26 or 27. Lean and mean! :D
