I'm still new here and I'm curious what services you "allow" Win XP to boot.
This shouldn't be a guide for "how to" but rather a reference list from (and for, of course) interested XP users. There are loads of guides out there, but I din't find any independent list of actual users so far, correct me if I'm wrong...
I'll start of with my own list in alphabetical order, all
Application Layer Gateway Service (alg.exe)
Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS)
COM+ Event Notification
DCOM Service Process Launcher
Network Location Awareness (NLA)
Plug and Play (PnP)
RAS Connection Manager
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Security Accounts Manager (SAM)
Service for Cryptography <__correct translation needed
Shell Hardware Detection
System Event Notification Service (SENS)
Windows Firewall (WF) / ICS
Windows Management Instrumentation
Note: I use a dutch version of Win XP, so please forgive me if any translation errors may have occurred...
