64 Processes is insane... You really need to clean up your windows installation... If my installation was that messy i'd just reformat, lol.

I have 16 processes in XP.

also that rocketdock i'm so going to use right now, Thanks for that little type it looks alot cleaner and seems to have a better config then my other one.
LOL I don't trust me

But if you are careful about what you disable and check out this site while you're doing it you'll be good. They also say to back up your system (I'm guessing a restore point).

Yeah, I really like Rocket Dock, it's teh uber 1337 haxx0r
No problem, hope this helps, it helped me.

Start>Run>type 'msconfig>Start up Tab>Disable All. Then go through the list and check the ones that you actually need on startup. (Basically you only need anti-virus.. and you can launch the other stuff manually when you want to use them.)

You can also go to the services tab and select "Hide all Microsoft Services" and uncheck the stuff you don't need in there.

This should greatly reduce the number of processes.

I would also check the "Start Up" folder in "All programs" under the start menu, and clear it out.

No, the programs in the startup tab are only programs you have installed, it controls wether or not they start up when windows does. You can safely disable all of them and windows will still boot.

If you mess around in the Services tab however, it might. As long as you check "Hide Microsoft Services" you will be fine though.

No no no, your ram is getting hogged so much because you have xfire, aim, msn, firefox, and all those things open. I'm sure if you exit out of all those your ram will go to normal. And for firefox, you can edit the config file to make it take up less ram.

It might, but XP has a lot of services not necesarry, I shaved off a good 150 megs of usage with that, and I'm a complete n00b. Aslong you're careful, read that guide carefully you should be fine. Might wanna do a restore pointjust incase. Most important though.. don't go disable crazy

yeah i did everything and i whent from like over 60% RAM useage down to 28% so thats a HUGE difference, but now whenever i restart my computer everything seems fine and its ALOT faster at booting let me tell you.

whent from at least a 2 minute wait for everything to load down to about 20 seconds.

but now on my G15 LCD screen it shows the RAM at 28% but the CPU is always 100% now no MATTER what i have running.
