Help with Vista Pro SP2 - Services.MSC
I am an old lady with MS, who has way too much time on her hands.
I wanted to speed up my system, so I went into Services.MSC, now I've made it slower.
Can anyone tell me which services should be started as automatic, automatic (delayed), Manual, or Disabled at Start Up?
Any help would be truly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,

Check this link Windows Vista Service Pack 2 Service Configurations by Black Viper this one will show you the configuration also the suggestions to tweak them. Or use this Tool Tweak Windows Services with SMART Utility : HomePage | The Windows Club
Hope this helps,

Been there done that, BV is what got my system messed up in the 1st place.
I was just hoping that there was a generic visita system start up that I could go by.
Will check back tomorrow after work to see if there are any other solutions.

Using the SMART application. Once you load it, it will determine what services are installed and what os you are running. Click the Default button and it will switch all your Windows Services to their factory default. This however will not switch any additional services which may be installed by third parties such as ATI, Adobe..............
The application also allows you to create a Restore Point, so if you try it and would like to revert, you have that option using Ssystem Restore.
