That's the right page but only a partial list.
If you hit the "Show processes for all users" at the bottom, the full list of all 70 plus processes will appear.
Then take a screenshot, then scroll down and take another, maybe even a 3rd one will be necessary to copy the entire list.
Let's get down to business.
I assume that you are missing one screenshot and that your processes don't stop at the letter T as in your 3rd pic, but no matter. We have more than enough to work with for now.
The pics that I am sending back, have M or D next to certain processes.
You go to "Services" (just type "ser" in your search bar above the start button) and change the processes from automatic to manual or disable, according to the letter I have assigned them.
Now, let's really get down to business.
What you will do in "Services" is probably a drop in the bucket as compared to what follows.
You have a huge combo problem.
You're running two AV programs at the same time, which causes a huge load, sometimes it can even crash a computer.
As if that weren't bad enough, one of them is Norton, the scourge of the computer world (cause an incredible amount of load) and the other is McAfee, the 2nd worst AV program next to Norton, for causing undue load.
The solution is to take both of them out, regardless of having paid for either or both, then install a decent free AV program, like AVG or Avira.
If you agree to do that, let me know and I will post screenshots to guide you through the lightweight way to install AVG.
I suspect that after removing those two POS AV programs and killed a few processes in "Services" that you will be pleasantly surprised at the computer's performance.
There's more to a tweak than what we just covered, but let's deal with this first, then move on to other things to do, when this job is done.
I'm just wondering, should I wait until I install my SSD and change these processes after I installed it to my laptop? It's arriving this week. Thanks.
It depends on what you intend on doing with the original hard drive.
If you plan on wiping it clean anyhow, perhaps you shouldn't bother, but if you plan on keeping the drive original as a backup or dual boot system, then yes, you should do it now.
