my nephew set up my dell with the setup cd. somewhere in start menu I located the number of programs, and wrote down by hand their titles. 48 of the 78 listed had an "R " beside them. I assume that means they load and run. Isn't that way too many programs? I'm sure he loaded the ones he uses, but I don't use that many. How, or why should I disable/delete/whatever some of these? I'm new at this, and am learning as I go. Could this be why every 7-8th time I try to disconnect from Earthlink, its taskpanel "hangs", grays out, and I cannot go back online, or get offline. Caught in limbo. Waht a mess. Neither Dell nor earthlink can figure it out. Dell even brought me new conexant modem--no luck yet.
