the amount of processes your running is irrelvant. what is though is your cpu usage

when you look at your task manager what is your cpu percentage at when your doing nothing?

I have a fresh install of Vista with updates and a very few programs installed and have 78 current processes running.

The only thing you could look for in your processes that might be causing an issue is to look at the memory column and look for anything that is using a lot of memory (like >100,000k).

no this is the percent the processors taking up under the cpu column and will be a 2-3 digit number
