Yes.

Keep it as low as possible.

Go to start menu, then "run", and type in "msconfig"

Go to startup stuff, and then see the .exe's that start up during .. well.. startup.


I have 28 processes when my computer starts.





Also, in order to tell what processes you want or not, just type the name of them in google (example: jusched in msconfig, so type jusched.exe in google to get information about it).

If it says "It's not needed but up to personal preference", is it a good idea to disable it?

Yes, just disable it.

Except for security stuff.

Realistically, you don't need antivirus/spyware stuff unless you download illegal stuff.. and even then, if you just dl moves/songs you can't really get viruses unless you're dumb.

If you want to keep the antivirus stuff, just do it.

But for the rest of personal preference stuff, just disable

I managed to knock off a few processes at startup. Turns out one of them was dangerous.

I'd prefer to keep McAfee processes running.

I still have 53 processes running...I'll edit my first post with a more recent HJT log.

That's true, like 90% of these processes are McAfee related...is there a free antivirus that only has 1-2 processes that you'd recommend?

EDIT: I'm thinking Avast. In addition to a virus-scan/antivirus, does it have a firewall?

Updated my HJT log after uninstalling a crapload of stuff.

How certain are you Windows Firewall is good enough? Is there a free firewall program you would recommend besides Windows?

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Yeah, it's called Zonealarm.

Excellent, works well, for example, if you are keylogged it'll ask you if you want the keylogger to send out your information. Simply click deny and delete the keylogger and you're safe.

I used to have Zonealarm but I was like, SCREW IT. I'm not going to get a virus, and I don't work for a company (my dad works is an engineer and has to have like 75 processes, most of them antivirus) so now I have no nothing, and it's fine.

Just disable the McAffee, seriously. Zonealarm + free antivirus stuff will keep you safe.

Besides, don't you need to pay for McAffee updates? No reason keeping an outdated firewall/antivirus.

You don't need to pay for updates but you do need to pay for a subscription yearly. It's my parent's money, but since it's my computer I'd like it to be safe and fast. McAfee is taking up too much RAM, I think I'll switch to Avast, and is Windows Firewall as good as McAfee firewall or at least good enough?

Also Weiman, yes, I hate Dell, it gets so deep...

seriously, anything more (unless you have a router) is simply pointless

My dad has a router on his PC and I have a Wireless Network reciever thingie, so I suppose I don't have to worry about a firewall as much as he does? I think I'll give this Avast a try.

Meh, I'm just gonna use Avast w/ Windows Firewall when the McAfee Subscription expires in July of next year...

I would do it now, but you can't cancel your subscription and my parents paid money...it would be a waste I guess...
