Think I asked this before but thread locked.
Just had a look at my task manager to see why laptop so slow.
Found 16!!! svchost.exe processes with 1 taking 174 mb of ram.
What could windows be doing with 16 running? and eating through my ram?

Get this (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx). It should tell you what each one belongs to. There's 12 of them running here atm

ok this is not good my vista has reverted to the older looking theme and is going really slow. This has only started happening after I did a batch of updates last night.
