I have dozens of processes, identified by Activity Monitor,  running in the background, some are instituted by root, _Window, _eppc, _network, _mdnsre, nobody, and my user account.


My question is,

1) how can I find out what each of these processes do?

2) Which ones can I disable and

3) How can I disable them permanently.

When I quit some of them, I find my computer runs faster, and more streamline. 


I quit Google Drive, HP Monitor and a few others that were taking up a large Real Mem. 


Suggestions please?
