    before BlackViper and programs such as Windows Worms Doors Cleaner, Steve Gibson's Three Musketeers....We used to have to read about Window services and the ports they open :blink:

    Having decided to wipe the slate clean yesterday....I found myself once again searching for this old subject matter. After just a few searches I was fortunate to come across a thread from one of the masters of the Internet :eek:

    'Lo and behold'....it was right here in our own back yard. Contained in that thread was a link with other links that explained once again how one can minimize Network Services On Windows Systems.

    Thanks for the trip Paul :thumb: ;)

    Good Topic B!

    Actually, since my first attempts to recapture my computer co-incided with finding BlackViper's page, I thought I would say a few words about why I think this pasty skinned gentlemen's site was so useful. I was because he struck a good balance between providing infomation, and making it easy enough that even if you did not understand it, you could still find out how to do it.

    I will follow up on those links.

    GF - I sort of agree with your approach, but I do not know of any resources that streamline the process. What I mean by that is, I think it is much more direct to edit the registry, than to use a program that does it for you, however, I just don't seem to come accross sites that say, "Here are the edits you need to accomplish what WWDC does..." I wish that were not the case. I think it would be interesting to see how to do directly what other programs do for you through an interface. That is not to say that I want to research the subject...but at least there is a chance I might learn a thing or two in the process.

    I thought this might catch your attention Hand's. Not too difficult meaning you can set it all up with a simple reg file.
    I'll provide an example in the next day or two as time permit's .... or as soon as I can put together a good "follow-along."

    Such edit's may also be staged through individual command's via a prompt if your feeling exceptionally daring?
