    Windows XP services start up

    HI,
    I know you can use Task Manager to kill unwanted services in Windows. But can anyone refresh my memory on how you can stop unwanted services from starting up in the first place?

    Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services.......... Then select the service you want to change and you can stop/start it or set it to auto/manual/disable...........

    hehe, i've had the same problem man. THe best thing to do:

    start> run> msconfig

    from there, goto startup.. disable and enable things you want, and don't want to start =)

    i'm pretty sure this is wut you wanted =)
