Windows XP Services that can be Disabled

Here is an exellent PDF that describes what Windows XP Services that can be Disabled and the consequences of doing so. The hope is that by unloading unneccesary services your XP system may run more securely and quickly.  You’ve always known that you didn’t need many, many of the services that come bundled in XP,  but if you’re anything like me you’ve avoided taking a systematic approach to disabling them until you have a comprehensive list of what is and is not really necessary.

Well, that’s exactly what this list will give you and it’s going to be very helpful for a lot of people who resent the presence of so much unnecessary bloatware on their operating system.

  1. Hello all,

    This paper is ONLY valid in a Corporate network environment. Don’t use it in an internet environment because of security hole on some services. (computer browser, remote access….).

    Anyway, if you want to use it, consult microsoft security web site.

    Best regards.
