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.
