Well, I have only my Firewall(PCTools) and antivirus(Avira) enabled in msconfig. Never had any problem from that. However you must understand that there are a host of other services(Start/Run/services.msc) that load at startup. More about them and their configurations here:http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm

Thnx for the pull up on this topic w/the eldergeek link again. it's not a bad idea to cut out anything not really needed. like you suggested though it's mostly better served on an entry level computer w/lil ram n storage.

I have not seen a lot of benefit from removing a few services, it's all the other crap from bells and whistle programs that cripple a power user setup

It's not really hard drive space or ram related as much as just having too many running processes that cripples performance

the more apps. together w/the bells and whistle proggies w/not enuff storage or enuff ram would cripple a system. there's no choice w/mce 2005 to try and kill everything you can and minimize proggies to ones you mostly use. the damn os on that is in gb's and doesn't even fit on a cd-rom.

I googled registry cleaners and 1 guy who used to edit pc magazine which i can't think of his name right now, but whom you might of heard of isn't convinced of them either on the basis that they all claim to optimize pc performance but they never provide any tests or proof. not to say they don't work but it was interesting to read. on the 1st 25 pages or so of about 25,000 entries not one backed it up w/any tests from research. you did mention this a while back. it's obvious that w/the deletion of files and proggies and everything else that it would eat up space, but he felt a few kb's here n there of deleted or missing dll's was not too a big deal.

Here he goes w/the link>http://www.edbott.com/weblog/?p=643
