    I stumbled across an extensive service list at Black Viper's.

    He also explains how to free up some of your Ram and VM, at Windows XP Super Tweaks.

    Even with all this info I had a hard time figuring out what all the processes were, svchost.exe is the worst. You might find process viewer helps a little.
