    XP SP3: 12 Windows native services, but I believe that I could use fewer.

    I have 112 services running on destop at work. However I believe that number would be much higher on my main laptop I use, I'll check tonight.

    Is there a program available that can disable un-needed services automatically rather than doing it manually?
    Thanks.

    I don't bother with changing the default, and have lots of software installed, so 80 services.

    Edit: 115 processes, 25 of them from Chrome.

    The thread title asks about processes. The poll specifies services. Which is wanted here?

    +1 :argh: confusing, unclear. Just like political polls. Cannot vote on unclear question.

    Windows XP-Pro SP3
    Processes (from Process Explorer) - includes 4 for Acronis, 3 for Snagit, 2 for Avast, 3 for Firewall - 35.
    Services (from control panel) just count of the Automatic ones - 35, Manual 49, others disabled.

    Now I'm running 83 processes. It will be better if the poll show intervals, not just numbers (e.g. 30-39, 40-49 etc.).
