My first post on this forum, but I'm a regular at [url=http://www.videohelp.com]VideoHelp - someone there recommended this site for a specific need I have...
I've had a look around, but the keywords I can think of using are too generic and so are returning results that don't apply. Hence this post...
I'm wanting to create a profile such that, when I log on using it, only the absolute minimum processes are started up - leaving as much system resources free as possible for editing and encoding.
I considered using "HijackThis" to delete registry entries for things that auto-start across all profiles, but that would also mean that other profiles won't have them starting - and killing my firewall / virus protection and the such like isn't a good idea.
I'm running 1Gb of RAM - when I close unnecessary processes in Task Manager (firewall, Skype, Yahoo etc.) I see that the "Mem usage" in Task Manager for Premiere Pro (when rendering), or my encoder (when encoding) jumps from around 40 - 50,000 up to the likes of 110,000. Surely that's gotta be a good thing?
In short, I'm looking to create a profile which, once logged on, only has the bare minimum of applications and services launched - no firewall auto-starting etc.
So - does anyone know how I can set such a profile up?
