Although my Task Mgr. says I have 57 processes running? Dear Lord...Any advice?
That's not bad, Jack, not for Vista... I have usually around that myself, and it's not a problem. However, if you want to cut them back, try TweakVista and go into the 'Services' section, there are a few options there to choose from.
Mind you, with a rig like that I don't think you're going to have issues with those sevices eating up your resources and slowing things down.
Anyhow, go play with your new toy and have fun.
