    Background Tasks

    Is there a list or document anywhere that explains the functions of the myriad of programs that I find running in background? When I run MSCONFIG and look at the startup list I have all kinds of things in there (like MDM7, MOSearch, etc.) that I have absolutely no idea what they are or if they're needed. I prefer to minimize the number of programs running in backgound, but I don't want to turn something essential off.

    Post 126403 has a pointer to http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup...artup_full.htm which does the trick for me.

    Thanks Stuart,

    I've been looking all over for such a list.
