Services.msc...what to stop,,,

  Fateful Shadow 19:35 07 Aug 2003

I've seen that I have a ot of processes going on and I wanted to cut down on the number that start up. However...I have literally no idea on which ones I should disable/set to manual/stop/etc.

I know that if I say "Which one's should I stop" will be silly because not everyone's computer is the same. However, is there some sort of resource that I could use to help me?

Thanks all
