    hey whiskey99,unless youve been messing with the settings they are set to windows default and what you see is how it should be.unless you are prepared for a world of heartache,dont change those settings.

    not all running processes are necessary,uniblue have a taskmanager addon that would put a ! on left side in a green circle,clik on it & it would open browser to what that process was or you could always just web surf

    what process is gaurd agent =
    easeus todo backup

    then decide whether to use ccleaner & disable it on windows start-up or use services.msc etc,etc
    remember to make a note on desktop of any changes you make

    type
    services.msc
    into run command or use command prompt with elevated privilege



    it will provide a list of services & the names while in the left column a description of those services running.
    there are few that can be set to manual start if you don't use them often:
    bluetooth = self explanetory
    print spooler = printer driver
    Remote Desktop Help Session Manager = remote desktop
    smart card = only vendors use it
    skype = skype :p
    skype c2c = click to call
    Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service = back door for hackers or NSA
    Wired AutoConfig
    Wireless Zero Configuration = neighbor logs in & uses all your monthly bandwidth allowance
    BrSplService = brother printer
