I thought it was here that someone posted how to make a gaming profile with XP---- where to go to find out all system processes that were safe to shut off to make a gaming profile so I dont have a bunch of bg processes running to increase performance on my games. Here is my system DXDia. Its not a bad system, Im building one slowly that has a Asus M2n32 Deluxe mobo, going to put in a fast processor and either my 8800GTS 640 or two 8800 768mb watercooled GPU's--- but thats later, right now I want to setup a gamin profile on my comp! Any help is appreciated!

these are the ones i shut down when i play:

dlbkmgr.exe
msascui.exe
point 32.exe
rogersagent.exe
(this is for my browser, yours will be something else probably, like aol, comcast, verizon, etc)
cftmon.exe
veohclient.exe
wmpnscfg.exe
dlbkmon.exe

i also went through my start up registry back when i installed the game, and removed all the crap you don't need running as soon as the computer starts. alot of programs (quicktime for example) want to run as soon as you start. why? when i need it, i'll use it! i don't want it using up resources when not in use. there are many programs that do this. download Ccleaner and use it to clean up your start up registry. also, minimize the amount of icons in your start up menu. doing this will help you boot your computer faster. eliminate as much stuff in the system tray for the same reason.

An easier way to go through your startup items would be to use Hijackthis! which is free.

I would NOT use HJT just to remove startup items. HJT is manly used to remove trojans and such. Like Cheezy said, I would go to Blackvipers website and read what he says.

Also if you want another way of removing start up items, is to use Mike Lin's Startup Control Pannel. from http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml that way is much easier.
