Default Excessive amount of processes at Start-Up?

My mates laptop has been operating at snails pace lately. Its a Toshiba model with a Intel Celeron T1600 CPU and 2BG of RAM.

At start up theres 90 processes running and 50% of RAM is being used! And thats before you open any applications. This is a lot!

I figure this is whats making this laptop pretty much useless.

So do I have to look up all the processes and find out which ones arn't needed so I can remove them or is there an easire way?

Hold down the windows key and press R. Type in msconfig in the Run... dialogue box and press Enter. Select the Startup tab. This will show you a list of programs that are set to run at startup. From here you can deselect the check box next to the programs you want to disable at startup. Also, you can track down the programs you find here and uninstall them if they are not needed.

Checked through the start up list. There's not much there goin on though.

Got it down to 70 odd processes at start up but still the laptop is using 1GB of the 2GB available RAM. The OS is Vista Home Premium.

Vista uses about 1gb of RAM just for the OS.
