just wondering what these processes are and are they needed? so i can disable them and speed up my boot time.. .I noticed that cthelper.exe is named "windvd patch", havent got windvd which means i dont need it on startup?.. I run winxp pro

A quick look see's them as files for a) Soundcard and second file b) MS office.

Nice place to checkout is here (http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/%5Bsystem%20process%5D/) where you put in your process and it tells you. Or use google.
