I’m working on this anemic laptop running WinXP, and I decided to start shutting down services I don’t think I need. I can’t go and set them to be disabled, because I’m not the only one who uses this, but I did stop as many as I could. I could stop more, if I could disable stuff and reboot.
This is what I got it down to. Less than a screen of services (barely) at 800×600. I write it here partially because I’m proud, and partially because if I have to reboot I want a reference to look at to see what I can shut down.
