My computer has 65 processes running when I boot up. Is this what’s making my computer so slow?

My computer is super slow all of a sudden and even when I don’t have any applications open, i have 65 processes running. Is that what makes my computer slow? How can I speed up my computer?

    Yeaaaa pretty much. I would just reinstall windows. It’s the easiest way and makes your computer as fast as the day you bought it.

    you need to determine which process(es) are using all your resources by clickin on cpu usage at the top of the task manager. if you don’t recognize the program, you could have some malware and need to remedy it. 65 processes isn’t bad as many have multiple aspects like svhost, ie. when you stop a process, it’s good to get in the habit of using ‘stop process tree’ w/ the right click instead of just the offending program.

    This might be normal. If you go to task manager(Right click taskbar and select task manager) then got to the “Processes” tab. Now here you will see all your processes. If the user name is SYSTEM then it is fine. If it has your user name, then you should be able to close it without change to your computer’s performance if you notice that it is using a lot of CPU.(Under the CPU tab.) Do NOT close ones marked SYSTEM. You could crash your computer if you do. Try a Registry scan. Your computer may have a mixed up registry(Happens after a while on most computers.) There are plenty of free registry scanners/fixers available just do a search in your favorite search engine for them. (Try searching for “free registry fixer” without the quotes.)
    You might have a virus causing it as well. Try a virus scan. If you don’t have an antivirus, search for AVG antivirus- it’s a free antivirus that should do the job for you.

    Hope this helped! 🙂

    Hi buddy.
    I think your RAM is used up to the full. And I think increasing your virtual memory will do.

    1. open my computer
    2. right click on it and select properties
    3. the Advanced, next settings.
    4. Again advanced.
    5. Look for Virtual memory. Then Change it.

    Way 2 go!!

    Just let me know if it helps!!!

    Possible. Check your task manager and find out just how much ram is being used by the 65 processes. If it is a bit much stop the unimportant ones from running and check your C Drive if it is quite full that could also slow things down try and free up some space and after that click your Drive C properties and defragment your C Drive to rearrange fragmented data. After all that if it is still slow run a virus scan.

    1. remove unwanted startup programs
    2. use ccleaner to remove temporary files
    3. Increase swap space in OS.

    Running processes are started automatically by what’s in the ‘Startup’ folder. Most of them are not needed but are put there by default and when installing a program.

    Disable the ones you do not need to have active (that’s most of them), this does not harm the OS or the HDD as you can activate them again at any time and/or when double-clicking the icon to start a program when you need it.

    Another hassle is that your RAM may not be enough, upgrade to at least 2 Gigs (Gigabytes) and see the big improvement.

    You can use a registry cleaner to clean up your computer and then make your computer faster,Why?the reason is that there may be some registry errors and remnant,corrupt files and temp files in your computer to cause “computer slow”.
    Every time you install and uninstall software on your computer and surfing online you create junk in the computer registry.over time, the registry can grow to enormous proportions, especially if the various programs you’ve installed do not do a good job of deleting and/or updating it’s Registry entries.You need to scan and clean your computer with registry cleaner to make it fast.Good Registry Cleaner will improve your computer and Internet performance dramatically!
    There are some comparison and review of TOP 5 registry cleaners.
    You can download and scan your computer for free.
