    Running Programs

    Is there a list somewhere of programs that MUST run in windows Vista?
    It seems to be a real memory hog and I'de like to disable some things if
    possible.. I already ran defender and took off what I didn't need on start
    menu programs but there are like tons of things running in task
    manager/Processes.. I don't want to disable something thats needed
    TIA
