how much is running (taking up CPU), what should be running and what one can "turn off" in the task manager in order to have better control when using your DAW? I have 48 processes showing in my task manager but I am not versed at how to tell what's doing what? Seems like an awful amount to be running (if it is running) at one time. Mostly AOL stuff I have no clue what it's for. Someday, Bang! Zoom! Right in da kissa! Ya know what I mean thar 'ol bean?
Thanks for any help. ANY?
