    I figured out that services stuff a long time ago on my own. But, good post as most people don't know about that stuff.

    Make XP work for you

    well a long time friend of "Black Viper" I follwed his instructions after stumbling accross it on the net right now.

    http://www.dead-eye.net/WinXP%20Services.htm

    I sugges using the "Safe" option, and readin carefully about each change. I tell ya, my computer is much faster.

    Also, some tips to are to disable the fading effect, smooth edges, shading, and showing the contents of the window while dragging it. Really saves PC resourses and RAM along with Processor power.

    Also, switch from the "Fisher Price" interface to the classic one, goes ALOT faster.

    PS, my computer aint slow, its really fast!

    Intel P4 w/ HT @ 3.4GHz
    1024MB DDR2 RAM
    250GB Maxtor SATA HD.
Working...
