    yup rik hit the nail on the head. best place of the net for a good explaination of what services should be running or that can be optional. But be weary...and know the outcome of what services you are disabling. I would recommend doing a system restore check point just so you can get yourself back if you muck it up.

    ok well i didnt see this anywhere on the list, maybe im blind.... but maybe somebody knows something else about this program.... Avengine.exe ... sometimes that program will just start using damn near 100 percent of my resources and if i end it, it just restarts itself immediatly.... anyone know what it is
