Tips on some of the services you can disable
By the way these services I disabled are from a Windows XP operating system.
This will free up some of your resources and hopefully speed your bootup as well.
Hope it helps someone.
Background Intelligence Transfer Service - I'm pretty sure this is used by Windows Update only.
IPSEC - I don't know what this is, so if someone can tell me what it actually does.
Telnet - allows a remote user to log on to the computer.
Smart Card - as the name suggests it looks after the smart card readouts.
Remote Registry - just like telnet, it allows a remote user to edit registry settings.
Alerter - it sends messages to users who are logged on to the server computer.
If anyone knows any other services you can turn off in Windows XP please add on.
