i'm trying to get rid of unwanted/unused services running in the background. CPQAlert.exe is a program located in 'program files/compaq' directory.

i did a sysinfo.org search on the program and it says you should uninstall it instead of just disabling it. it's not in the add/remove programs list; it's just a .exe file that starts with windows. anyone know how do to get rid of it save from deleting it?

I'm presuming you are trying to not have the Compaq Insight Manager start at all. And you would prefer to not have to uninstall it, either. If that is in fact the case? I would suggest that you remove the CPQAlert.exe from your start up menu. Microsoft has a well written article on their support website on how to "How to Modify the List of Programs that Run When You Start Windows XP" Here is the link to the Microsoft support article. Hopefully this is what you were looking for. If not please reply.
