When you boot windows and ctrl alt del, theres a laundry list of proccesses running, particularly if you have a computer bought at retail. It's a bit tiresome to ctrl alt del and close each one every time I reboot. I've made a visit to the control panel to uninstall all programs I could but theres still a dozen or so processes that i dont want running. Is there a downloadable utility or feature in windows that will close all unneccesary processes with one or two clicks?

I find that navigating to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run in the registry and deleting unnessary crap works well too.

I think you are talking about backround services that start on your startup, in XP you dont have uninstall anything you could just dissable all the unecessary services that run on your computer:
Go to Run and type services.msc, right click on each service, properties and choose disable.

Alerter
Application Layer Gateway Service,
Application Management
Automatic Updates
Background Intelligent Transfer
Clipbook
Distributed Link Tracking Client
Distributed Transaction Coordinater
Error Reporting Service
Fast User Switching Compatibility
IMAPI CD-Burning- with this turned off you cant burn CDs and you cant copy them (i think)
Indexing Service
IPSEC Services
Messenger
Net Logon
Net Meeting
Remote Desktop Sharing
Network DDE
Network DDE DSDM
Portable Media Serial Number
Remote Desktop Help Session Manager
Remote Registry
Secondary Logon
Smartcard
SSDP Discovery Service
Telnet Themes
Uninterruptible Power Supply
Universal Plug and Play Device Host
Upload Manager
Webclient
Wireless Zero Configuration
WMI Performance Adaptor

These are not essential services that run on your XP

And if you like the XP feature that automatically downloads updates then you'll want to leave Background Intelligent Transfer on. I don't even think the windows update webpage works right without it.

As I said those are non essential services, and they wont cause any harm if they are dissabled, I have em turned off!

By the way if u turn at least some of these off, and you still have some processes running that you know nothing about I suggest you get a virus scan...
