Sweet. Thank You. It was definitely Black Viper's site. And I see it is Under Construction at the moment. I did a search and it seems like he has been MIA according to some forum for a little while now, hopefully he comes back.
The site you were probably recommended is Black Viper's. I recommend you do not use MSCONFIG to disable services, but instead use the tool meant for this task, the Services MMC plugin. Run services.msc

Because then you cant accidentally disable critical services
Why does everyone say it's safer to disable services via services.msc? Why difference does it make if you use msconfig instead?

I used to have a list of the MS Services it was okay to turn off under msconfig.
I have tried Googling it and I cannot find the exact web page I used to use. This page was really good because it not only told you what was okay to not have run, but why it was okay.
I know the page was actually recommended by someone in these forums, so does anyone know the web page (site) I am talking about and/or have a similar page they use?
I am just looking for a list that says what MS Services it is okay to turn off through msconfig, and if possible also have it explain why it is okay.
