Can anyone tell me what processes are safe to end prior to running FS2K2?I am just curious to know what the minimum process requirements are (ctrl+Alt+Del) to run flight sim while still running addons like FSMeteo.Cheers!Simpilot

Simpilot, Before running FS2002 you can end all of the processes with your name next to them in the task manager (just don't end explorer.exe), I believe there is a program that will end all processes for you but I'm not sure. (I think it's called End It All, search for it here in the library)Cpudan80 :) :+

Here are some helpful links for you:This one will help you decide which services to leave running:http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/service411.htmThis one will help you decide which processes to kill:http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_pages/startup_full.htm(NOTE: This one takes a while to load, even on my cable connection)Just for refrence, after a fresh boot with no programs running, I have 13 processes running. As for services, I only have 16 of those running.
