Hello,
I was wondering whether I could turn off this Service: C:\WINDOWS.2\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs. The thing is named Server, and from the description, I feel that I don't need this thing, but I can be wrong. Can someone, please, educate me on this issue? :whistling:

Thanks. :blink:

I don't know what it is myself, but GOOGLE probably does.

If you have one computer and don't use the File Sharing facilities built-in to Windows XP, you don't need this service.
