    Plx Help, Win 8, I use No Apps, w/ Startup n 100 Proceses


    2 month new Leneno Laptop, 2014 new, 8 gb, i7 processor & only 5 programs installed. And my computers getting slower n slower. So many processes I could cry. Any it's a 2 month old Brand New Leveno Multimedia labtop. I just installed the wacom dock, and painting in photoshops becoming a problem. Brush strokes are time lapse'ing. Concept art painting is my favorite thing on earth, and there 100's of processes running behind it when nothings open, i don't use win8 apps ever, I so need your knowledge wisdom. Can someone plz tell me what startup programs to disable OR unnessecary processes that could be turned off without any system errors? I turned off 1 Service Host Local Service (12) or (13) acouple months ago and my memory n disk % jumped to 70% n 100%. As sad as that is, I've been able to paint, design, & 3D no problem. I know thats stupid. Thats a another problem. Not sure how to solve that one. But I'm mainly concerned with the Startup and Unnecessary Processes. Thanks so much for your time and expertise. Its so so much appreciated. Many Thanks, J

    Holy smokes!!! That's a lot of stuff goin on!

    Welcome to Windows EightForums, baxx!

    I'll suggest right clicking on the 'Name' header and add all the attributes you can for further identification then right click on each process and check the details or research it online.

    You can also use the Clean Boot process to determine what processes/services are causing the performance problems. See here: Troubleshoot Problem with Clean Boot in Windows 8

    Thank you Edwin & Ztruker, I will do both. I only install design programs I need, no bullshit from the internet. Most the this crap came with win8. Thanks so much your help. I will follow both your suggestions. Run the clean boot and go process by process to see what the deals is. Thanks so much for you time. It's most appreciated. Have a great 2014. - J
