Damn....40 or 50 programs running. I have XP Pro and I usually have only 10 or 12 programs running in the background. Getting rid of some of those should help you out nicely.

QWERTY: i closed some programs that i thought they were not useful using MSCONFIG, but there are still many programs that are running in the background when i bring up the tasks manager. i am not going to mess with those because i might mess up my computer by doing that.

Actually, having 30 process running is about average for most people running Windows XP. If you look at the CPU usage, most of the processes are sitting idle and therefore not affecting system performance. The more memory you have, the more processes are pre-cached into memory in order to enhance performance since the system doesn't need to access the harddrive.

Like I said, I doubt your framerate performance problem has much to do with your system. Battlefield is a network hog and your framerate is dropping because the network is experiencing some lag. There's only so much you can do from your end.

QWERTY: i don't play the game online, so i don't think it's the problem with the network.

Does Ctrl-Alt-Del in win-xp give you the option to close processes? if it does, then try closing ones you think are not necessary. you will not harm your computer if things stop working right... they will all start up again next time you reboot (this is right i think???). Also if you are not sure about what a process is, do a google search for it... there will be lots of sites telling you what is safe to end, and what must be left running.
