« on: October 30, 2007, 05:10:16 pm »
hi, read or heard somewhere that turning some of the background stuff off in task manager free's up the cpu for the games.i was wondering how do you know which 1s too turn off and which need too be left?
at the moment it say's i've got 61 prossess using 14/20% and im only web browsing and downloading bf2 updates.
or just leave it alone  :biggrin:

Hummm.....This stuff is best done on Vent......But basicaly....Anything with your User Name can go....Bar Explorer.exe and taskmger.exe (That goes when you close Task Manager) There are others....depending on your hardware and taste......Without going into the ones that can be close in the others e.g SYSTEM etc......Best leave them alone.

What Swordy said, if you happen to kill a required process windows will one not let it be killed or two force a restart of your workstation to get the process running again.

so SYSTEM,LOCAL SERVICES,NETWORK SERVICE AND SYSTEM all get left alone and anything merlin (mine) does'nt need to be running.
and if you turned them off do they restart when you restart the comp?

To be safe, yes

anything merlin (mine) does'nt need to be running.


Anything on there bar the ones that I mention and anything you want to keep running....Yes

and if you turned them off do they restart when you restart the comp?


They do....only if you turn them off in services.msc are they dead....But thats a whole new ball game.
