I am running Microsoft Vista Pro SP2 on a Dell computer.

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,
Angi

Unless you're really computer savvy, services should be left alone.

Why do you want to play with services?
Any issues?

Did you monkey around services already?

Please, post some computer info:
- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")
- security programs in use (antivirus, firewall)

Use system restore to go to before changes and we'll go from there.

Monkey around first, ask later, huh?....LOL

Can't use system restore, as it has the same profile.... I cleaned up my old backups. Yes, I know, why on earth would I do that... No comment! :-(
