1. Clean the registry...You think it's not usefull but you must know what to remove. Just run "regedit" and search a uninstalled program or deleted files or something unneccesary and remove them.
2. Using regedit find the startup folder and delete the programs that you don't want to start.
3. If it doesn't help check for a virus with kaspersky...It is not very sure that you will find anything but just try.
4. Nothing helps....Take the OS CD and reinstall....
If you are not agree tell me to discuss this..

if you're unsure, you can do a search using the name of the process and there'll probably be results leading to people asking the same question about the process in discussion forums.

I disagree. I'm a firm believer in combing for unnecessary services.
That's good idea, however, virus alway names its process with the same name in windows and make us some difficult to find it manually. Besides, in Windows XP, there are so many processes, it's hard to find the bad process.
Remember that these services consume memory and CPU - so anything that isn't necessary has to go! That being said - I agree that there are many people who are not savvy enough to do this with confidence.
But with a little knowledge and application you can speed up your machine greatly. For instance, if you don't use any form of unix whatsoever, why run an NFS service, or LPR/LPD, for that matter. Chameleon used to have a service (PortMapper??) that used to just bog machines incredibly, yet most people never used it.

There was a program that had a similar name to Spybot Search and Destory that was spyware. Spyware Search and Destroy is NOT spyware itself. Where you heard that I have no clue.
Where did you hear it anyway? If you're still a bit suspicious go here:
And you'll see press coverage of spybot. If its spyware how come it got press coverage and people love it? It also won some awards as well
We've all pretty much switched over to AdAwar 6.0 by LavaSoft. This is a really good program and deserves mention. I have no interest in AdAware or LavaSoft, it is just great stuff.
