Speeding up the PC
From James Morano, E.T.C.A.
If your PC is running too slow, you may want to speed it up by running a quick scan and stopping all the unnecessary
processes that are running there. When you open your computer, it may start up very slowly, which can be very annoying for
you. However, to fix this problem, you can run a quick scan on the computer and open the task manager to stop the unwanted
processes. You will be shown a big list of processes running on your computer in the task manager like
Explanation of some of the processes shown in task manager
acdaemon.exe is typically a process related to the
software Arc Connect. If you think you need this software then donít stop the process.
acs.exe is a process that runs along with the Atheros Wireless LAN and provides extra configuration settings for it.
alg.exe is a process related to the Application Layer Gateway service.
apache.exe is an important process required for web hosting. You can look for the information on all the processes on the internet to find the purpose of each.
Concerns related to processes
Basically you need to be concerned since many of the processes like appoint.exe,
atiedxx.exe and others can take up many of the computer
resources and may slow down the computer. Hence you need to stop the CPU intensive processes like
avgcsrvs.exe if you do not need them.
There are also some other processes like avgnt.exe and
avp.exe that can potentially be viruses and Trojans and so
they should be stopped instantly.
There are some processes which are running in the background like batindicator.exe,
bservice.exe and others which you donít need exactly and
which will not cause any disturbance in the computer performance if you stop them.
See you soon! James :)
