    disabling services is just about the last thing i now need to do to get my system back to normal after the reinstall i did. i usually decide what to disable by going through Black Viper's guide and the Elder Geek's guide plus what i think needs to by done too.

    i haven't ever used the bare bones (super tweaks) options from BV, do any of you use those tweaks? or do you just use the "SAFE" tweaks? or are there any other guides i can follow? thanks

    BV's site has been down for a few days for upgrading or something, the guide i am talking about is at the link below vvv

    and this is the Elder Geek one vvv

    Hi Ice, ;)

    The config file you're linking to isn't the latest (which should be Saturday, October 16, 2004 @ 7:03 PM PST) ... Use this one for XP SP2 -> http://web.archive.org/web/20041128084144/www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm

    I have a little bit of mix 'n match, using settings from both Safe and Power User/Bare Bones. For any Advanced PU/BB settings be sure to go thru the dependency for each service, and consider your needs. Make a record of changes, so that if you ever reformat your drive and re-install XP, you can quickly run through your list without much thought, ;)

    HTH,

    Steve

    thanks Steve. i'm not sure if i would have remembered to take a close look at the dependencies. i should be fine to do it now.

    i keep checking the BV page and it was last updated on the Nov 08, 2004 even though it says October 16, 2004 on the site, anyway i'll use the latest one i can find and make sure it's for SP2. thanks for your help :)
