I was just going to try some of the tips in PCA to speed up my ccomputer. I would like to use msconfig but can't find it on my computer. I have done a search on all HD's but there is nothing called that. Any ideas?
The XP msconfig is OK, although you might consider another startup manager, such as click here Small and handy tool which lets you see what's starting up a little more clearly.
If you want to manage your Services, I suggest you don't use the Services tab in msconfig. The information there is not very full. Go directly to the Services console, either via Administrative Tools, or click Start, Run, type services.msc and click OK.
From there, you can read a little more. Double click an item, select the Dependencies tab, and you can read what other services depend or are dependant on, the service in question, and decide what services to set to manual, automatic, or disabled (don't disable any services unless you're absolutely sure). Telnet is one you can usually disable.
click here to read up on w2k services. I don't actually find tinkering with services saves much resources, but other people have different experience, and you might want to have a look.
