Hi there everyone,

I've been doing some reading up on stuff on what computer services can i disable from starting up at all? I've found a few sites on where I'd like some good feedback on if I could please from anyone.

are these listed below okay & totally safe to disable from the services?

Because Windows XP has to be all things to all people it has many services running that take up system resources that you will never need.  Below is a list of services that can be disabled on most




Computer Browser

Distributed Link Tracking Client

Fast User Switching

Help and Support - (If you use Windows Help and Support leave this enabled)

Human Interface Access Devices

Indexing Service

IPSEC Services


Netmeeting Remote Desktop Sharing (disabled for extra security)

Portable Media Serial Number

Remote Desktop Help Session Manager (disabled for extra security)

Remote Procedure Call Locator

Remote Registry (disabled for extra security)

Remote Registry Service

Secondary Logon

Routing & Remote Access (disabled for extra security)


SSDP Discovery Service - (Unplug n' Pray will disable this)



Upload Manager

Universal Plug and Play Device Host

Windows Time

Wireless Zero Configuration (Do not disable if you use a wireless network)


These information is very important, please anyone can be helpful to me

Thanks again!!

If you really want to cripple your system, feel free - but don't expect anyone to assist in the process!
