Hi,
I'm having problems with my explorer.exe in my proccess list because I have realized it is going up to about 40Mb, which is very unusual. My friend said there might be too many "Services" running and I should switch some of them off. I don't know which ones i should turn off at startup becuase I am no expert with computers and barely (if any) know anything. Please exlcude and Symantec, msn or itouch services because i startup with those programs and need them. Here is my Services list, could someone tell me which ones to turn off at startup. Thanks Cheesy

Hi,

Since every Windows configuration is unique, I cannot simply give you a list of what services to disable. Disabling the wrong service can render your system unusable. If you're careful, you can figure out which automatically enabled services your PC can do without.

Here are a few resources that can help you out.

Hope this helps!
