60+ some odd processs running from Symantec, MS HP on my "idle laptop"

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

My HP laptop which I bought last ay seems to take significantly longer
to finish the boot process than it did several months go.
If I do a process tree (see below) with nothing open that I am running
it shows an incredible 66 processes from Symantec, MS, and HP mainly.
I'm not sure how much memory or CPU this stuff uses,but it must take
along time to load and initialize on startup correct? Is this typical ?
Is that stuff slowing down my machine and will only get worse ? What
should I or could I do ?

First, almost nothing in the list named HP or Lex or Real or msmsgs or
jusched or qttask needs to be running - they are helper applications
that sit in the background and waste resources. You can find drivers
that are stripped down that do a better job on their vendors sites. As
for Real/Jusched, just disable them and manually check for updates.

Oh, you don't need the google or any other search helper experience
either, you can remove them in add/remove programs.

Your Symantec seems to have a problem - none of the 2000+ machines we
have shows more than 1 LU serice running. I would suggest that you
uninstall Symantec anything, reboot the computer (while not connected to
the internet directly) and then reinstall and update.

[snipped list of processes]

I just bought my son HP laptop, very high end, and it took more than a
hour to remove the trial-ware, the crap, the tool bars, the stuff that
should never had been installed.....

Re: 60+ some odd processs running from Symantec, MS HP on my "idle laptop"

I would highly recommend removing Symantic (Norton) software in
general. I recommend Avast antivirus (it's free), and turning on
Windows firewall
in control panel: security center (also free). Not only does this save
money, but provides higher security. I used to be a big Norton
supporter, but they
have failed me in the last few years. I also had an HP, and like you
Symantic Suite was installed and keeled my computer, if the add/remove
does not work, I recommend contacting HP and they have an uninstall
tool. I also agree with Leythos that many of the remaining tasks dont
need to be
running on startup. To disable these go to the start menu: run: and
type in msconfig (!!!warning from this point on!!!). Navigate to the
last tab on the right
and you will notice it contains many of the programs in your list. Do
not disable anything you dont know, but qttask, open office, etc can be
disabled. Many
programs run things for "faster startup" of their programs if you
choose to run them, but this slows down the computer the entire time.
Do not edit anything
on the other tabs as this can damage your Windows install.
