Hello, I had originally posted this in the XP forum for lack of a specific security concern. The original post follows:

Hi community, I just picked up an IBM / Lenovo X41 tablet, released in 2005 the price has really come down to the $300-$400 range. It's not a great tablet by today's standards, but with a 1.5 GHZ P4 Centrino and 1.5 GB of RAM (1 GB added) it shouldn't be as cumbersome as it becomes at some times. I noticed that there are a great deal of active programs, many more than on my desktop. Most do not show up individually in msconfig startup and services tab.

My question is this: would anyone mind taking a look at my HJT log to identify any superfluous or expendable applications or processes. Many are IBM utilities that can reportedly be shut down, but I'm not sure about others. Please let me know if anyone is up to the task. Thanks so much for your help!

Update: I have gone through system info descriptions online and found information on a good fraction of programs, removing many of them. Only unknown programs remain in a fresh HJT log, along with a few I'm leaving which I can note if and when I post a log. Thanks again!

I've checked the processes one by one, but I'd like to ask: Do I need to keep all these services and buttons active for programs I use infrequently? I'd like to operate at a bare minimum if possible to make things run as quickly as possible with minimum incidence of gridlock.

I used the automated HJT scanner and everything is safe or very safe, but there are just tons and tons of active processes and objects that I fear are robbing performance.
