I have about 40 processes running in the background and its causing problems with games and I was wondering if anyone can tell me what you need running for your system to run and what is garbage so I can get my PC running properly

The minimum... well that would be (for WinXP)

-Explorer.exe
-Taskmgr.exe
-SpoolSV
-SvcHost (four instances)
-Lsass.exe
-Services.exe
-WinLogon.exe
-CSrss.exe
-Smss.exe
-System
-System Idle Process

At least that's what I'm fairly sure is the "safe" amount to run with. Kill everything else.
