    Does anyone knows a site where you can find the standard installed Services/Drivers on a XP SP2 system? I do know about a couple of sites discussing services but what about drivers? :blink:

    Thanks for the link, but I was wondering if someone had a list of the standard installed MS drivers (not services) on a XP SP2 system. But I guess the best way to find this out is to install a new XP system in VMWare and compare the installed drivers with the drivers on your real system. :)

    What is your definition of "drivers" ?

    Most all the XP SP2 services use .dll files which themselves are "drivers" :doubt:

    Well, they are also called "devices" sometimes but you can checkout Pserv to see what I mean. And in SSM, services and drivers are distinguished by icon in the "services monitor" module. :)

    Edit: I forgot to mention that services are normally .exe files and drivers have the .sys extension.
