Well most of those look unnecessary, myself I would untick all of them as they are not system processes, but that is upto you. Also I see you have AVG installed? Along with Kaspersky and SpyDoc?

2 - 3 Are Nvidia tools, so you could leave them.

1 - 2 Are Asus (Motherboard) tools, again optional I would say.

Still got the audio problem and have updated all drivers

Reckon its the lack of not having a dedicated soundcard?

I would check what sort of processing the adobe and google programs are using up as well as your antivirus. I use Avira myself and it doesn't slow it down.

Have you tried playing music in winamp?

With Winamp, you can go into the settings and set it's priority Wink

I find that helps.. the more other programs try to leech resources from it.. the higher I put it's priority... nobody messes wiv my music! Mad
