So, I got this idea from the irc channel ( irc://irc.efnet.org/donationcoder ), so here goes.

How many processes do you have running on A. Startup, and B. After startup (during normal usage).

A. 58
B. 65

If you find a good solution and become attached to it, the solution may become your next problem.

Personally I think memory usage is a better goal to aim for. With careful pruning of services I used to get sub 70mb for XP usage after boot. Now though I'm using XP x64 which boots into over 250mb usage but I haven't bothered to try and tune it as the difference isn't noticable anyway.

It's not a bug, it's an undocumented and unexplainable feature.
