Default Processes cleanup

I was wondering if there was any program that can stop terminate unnecessary processes in Win 2K. Also, I've installed and uninstalled one or two programs from my computer (including AOL ) and I was wondering if there was any program that can clean up my registry, and maybe also my program files folder.

Free programs are preferred, but go ahead and suggest not-free ones also.

Use either (the built in)
Windows Task Manager,
then right click on process name then End Process
PrcView from

If you mean stop them from starting
then either (built in, usually) MSConfig
Hijack This

to disable them from starting automatically.

there is no MSConfig for win2k, you'll have to download it, and install into your C:\Windows or C:\WinNT directory, then it'll work the same way as in previous versions of Windows.

It can be downloaded from
