Hi, The problem I am having is that I have a lot of processes running on my computer in the background and also at my start up and my computer is lagging a lot because of it. Firstly I was wondering which programs do I have running that are not needed for my computer to run normally. Secondly I was wondering how can I post all the processes running on my computer on to the forum? Thank you.

Start by going to the Security and Viruses forum and read upon the use of Hijack This. Then get the program, have it scan your system and save a logfile.

Then post the contents of the logfile here and I'll read through it for you.

To be honest I don't see anything obvious in there, at least nothing that might explain your computer's slowness, with the exception of Symantec of course.

The products from Norton/Symantec are notorious for their abuse of system resources, so if you're looking to improve your system speed and responsiveness, then get something else to keep you safe. But make sure you investigate all your options thoroughly before jumping, because crashing a computer with haste is not nice. I know from bitter experience how that feels.

But it's really up to you what you want to do.
