    Are these files necessary in the computer startup processes?
    Or can I turn them off.
    I remember reading earlier today on here (older thread).
    In order for Acronis to make a proper image, it needs to startup when the computer is turned on.
    So I can essentially have it off and when I want to create a backup, just allow these to start up again and restart the computer, right?
    Thanks in advance..............

    Lots of stuff on this in the forum.

    I'll iterate what's been posted often enough, you will gain virtually nothing by disabling them. There is a myth that Win should have a few processes in the process list as possible, that somehow this will make programs run better under Win. Sometimes it can be true that an errant process is left running by a program shouldn't be there but unless a process is actually causing a problem, there isn't really any advantage to disabling it -- it's not as if it using up oodles of resources when its virtually dormant on the list.

    Other popular myths: overclocking will always make programs run faster -- sometimes program and disk performance is worse even if the CPU reads faster.

    Defragging causes a perceivable increase in system performance -- only if the disk is badly fragged, and then, only for certain types of programs.

    There's some intersting notes about other XP myths here:
