XP Services

  Gorillaz 10:55 27 Feb 2009

Just took the plunge and bought PC running Vista. There are no doubt tons of stuff running in the background that i don't need. PCA had a walk through of all the services that you could turn of in XP. Has anything been done for Vista. One problem I have is the screen-saver will not turn on after the 10 minutes i have set

I'm not sure if PCA have done a write up on disabling Vista services, but there are loads of sites around that have, this one click here for example, but make sure you know what you're disabling before taking the plunge.

BlackViper's website has normally been the benchmark for a definitive guide to Windows Services.
