>the version on the disc is older than the one on the computer.<

This is probably true since you installed SP2. I think you have to uninstall SP2 and then try XP Pro. I assume you are starting with the Home edition installed?

I have 43 services present on my computer. At this point in time my computer does boot rather quickly after making an adjustment to the prefetch in the registry editor from 3 to 2. I would like to hear anybodys opinion on what services are not really required to run. Thank-you all for both your time and patience in this matter.

You are taking over someone else's thread and would be much better starting your own.

However, a full list of XP's Services and which to Enbable, Disable or leave as Manual can be found at the excellent and respected Black Viper website:
