IBM T42p and Windoze cruft

by oneafrikan on January 12, 2006

Anyone got an IBM T42p laptop?

I’ve had mine now for almost 5 months now, and it’s starting to get a little crufty… so I want to know more about the processes I don’t need to run. I’ve experienced, even with 2GB of RAM, that some apps actually tell my that my system memory is running low – so I do the ‘ol “Task manager > kill processes”.

I’ve always been a huge fan of keeping things simple and getting rid of all the system process running in Windoze that you don’t really absolutely need… Startright is great for keeping your system startup clean of crap, but what I’ve found with the T42 is that there are many IBM system processes running which I don’t know enough about to get rid of…

So, if you’re an IBM Tx laptop user, what do you do / say / advise to start moving from cruft to craftiness ;-)
