    MY GOD.......74........what de heck!!!!
    I also own dell 6000......but it has maximum of 34 processes at startup.
    Neways i tweaked it coz it was initially aving around 40 processes on startup with winxp Pro!
    I seriusly recommend u using winxp manager.....and tweak ur system and remove the unwanted services and startup programs. Also NAV has around 10 processes. I recommend to use kaspersky instead it has 2 processes !
    U may also use spy sweeper as it notifies u whenever a startup program has been added.

    Ok so I filtered the running processes report and I can see only 60 processes that were running at the time of taking this hijackthis log. I can't comment about other 15 that you are reporting but from these 60, I will tell you what you are running. You decide what you want to run and what not. Here is the list of program with number of processes it is running. You can stop all of them if you check under msconfig.
    Then there are 4 processes that involve zipgenius, firefox, IE and hijackthis.
    In total these are 49 processes, remaining 11 are Windows processes and you can reduce them by disabling un-needed services. Follow some good guide from net.

    Symantec and Norton Antiviruses are the worst memory eaters and machine slowers.. i think its better to use some other AV...
