I have been cruising around the search engines for awhile, and I seem to have found that there is plenty of pages that I did not even KNOW was being viewed. On the web server, the pages stay even after I delete them locally. Why? I really do not know. They are really not supposed to do that. Anyway, I found that Darkstone Stuff has made over 3000 hits and I deleted that page about a year and a half ago, as well as my 300MHz Win2k Services Configuration page, [Continue Reading]

Depends. A network connected computer going through another computer and then on to the internet needs the following services: DHCP Client ~ Unless you are using a static IP address. Plug and Play ~ No real need to have it disabled. RPC ~ Required for the next service. Workstation ~ Needed to connect to a “server.” Also needed for connecting to another computer for File and Print Sharing. For an analog (modem) connection, you will also need Telephony and anything that service needs to run and your particular connection method. (Auto Connection Manager, [Continue Reading]

How did you E-Mail me? Place each service that you disabled back to manual, or even better, Automatic, to see which one you need for your particular configuration. Everyone’s is slightly different (56k ~ ISDN ~ DSL/Cable ~ T1 ~ 10/100) so I cannot have a “guaranteed” internet setup. Actually, the default (as long as it worked before) should do fine. 🙂 You can also try out the “Safe” configuration. Needless to say, using the “default” is not the point, but if you place each service, one at a time, that deals directly with [Continue Reading]

If you do not need ICS, be sure to disable all of the services associated with it. The “Gaming” configuration is a catch all that could be labeled “Power User” or “Slim and Trim” or “Minimum Memory.” I just choose to call it “Gaming” because that is what I do best. 🙂 You should try out my “Safe” configuration if you are scared about breaking something. Also, view my Services 411 Page for more information on what services you may need or not need if you use your computer for other purposes, like work?!? [Continue Reading]

No. There is no user configurable services in Windows 95/98/Me. Services appear with the “true” 32-bit OS’s, like WinNT, Win2k and WinXP. Using msconfig, you can check other programs that may be hogging memory, but that is a totally different topic and you should not disable anything that you are not sure if you need. In short, if an application is in the system tray (lower right) it is taking up memory and does not need to be. You can check my Windows Me Super Tweaks Page for things that you can do to [Continue Reading]
