|I agree that you do have a large number of running processes. Windows 7, by its nature does use more processes. Taht said you don't have the strongest CPU so you should make an effort to limit unnecessary running processes. One that jumps out is Windows Media Player. 19% CPU usage. What did you have playing at the time of that screen shot. Another is Microsoft Windows search filter host. |
Have a look at the link below concerning one of your running processes.
I suggest you edit your Windows update default settings to notify you. Then look at what is offered and decide if you need it or not. Usually you need the critical updates and don't need the others. Sometimes you may want the others. While on that subject, others may disagree but I never download hardware updates from Microsoft. I will view why that update is being offered. If there is a security aspect, then I will update drivers from the hardware manufacturer. If not, then I leave things alone.
