I click Start>Run...type msconfig....under the services Tab there are a BUNCH of programs running.
I assume this is what's slowing my pc down so much. Does anyone know where I can find a list that tells me what is necessary and what I can eliminate?

Thanks in advance...

Besides just a list of XP services, he has a lot of useful - and important - info about how to disable/enable them, what potentially could happen if you do, etc. I recommend reading almost everything this guy has on his site about XP services before disabling any on your computer.

Black Viper is a useful site. I had been looking for something that would explain services in Win2k
