Hi: I hope I'm posting to the right board, because I really am a newbie to Vista. I've checked all the tips and guides, etc., and I've seen other posts about specific scheduled tasks, but none that answer my question. My new HP Compaq computer, that came with Vista Basic, does not run that quickly. It's not super slow, it's just a little slow, and I'm wondering if it's because of all the scheduled tasks running in the background. I looked into the task status for the last 24 hours and it shows me a total of 73 tasks! It has 10 running and 37 succeeded. Is this really necessary? I understand Vista brags about extra security, etc., but at what price? Can someone tell me if I really need all these tasks running and if it would be advisable to disable some? Wouldn't that help speed up the computer a little? Thanks so much.
My computer is a HP Compaq Intel Celeron 356, 120GB H.D., 512 RAM, 3.3 GHz. I hope this is enough info.
