I do see a Dell Inspiron N5110
Sorry but the topic about eliminating programs running in the background changed the topic pretty quickly and I still need help with the original topic. I've eliminated the programs I know I can without repercussions, however there are some listings I simply can't figure out. Tried searching some of them but didn't really get a solid answer whether they actually needed to be running or not. I don't believe it is as simple as disabling everything but anti-virus but I know I can't possibly need everything that is running. I'm afraid that removing something I'm unfamiliar with just because I don't know what it is will cause me problems that I might become aware of after any possible damage is done. So please can anyone post on this subject alone without plugging a particular product or discussing the faults of others. I just want to know how to read down the list of programs and take the proper actions. I have used several programs to clean already. I now just need to either know which programs I can remove, disable or out right eliminate if they are totally unnecessary and were not installed by me. Thank you so much and please don't take offense at my suggesting we remain on topic. Having run an artist's forum for a few years I appreciate passion and although not a techie I do believe I will enjoy it here as well but I am pulling my hair out with this issue and at my age its about the only thing left that's still in factory condition even if white instead of the original brown. Looking forward to participating in more discussions.
