    Anyone have a link to a site which tells me what each process is, and
    whether it's essential or not. I am talking about background tasks, under
    Windows Task Manager.

    I have 36 processes running on my machine, and i am sure I dont need all of
    them.
    Any tips would be greatly welcome, I'd just like to cancel few of them,
    since I mainly use my machine to make music, so the fewer background tasks I
    have running, the better.

    Thanx
