I suggest not fooling around at all with services.

The key elements in slow booting would be your startup items...looking at services or modifying services...won't impact your current startup items.

I suggest you use one of the following startup managers, after reading the instructions on how to use each:

Startup Control Panel - http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

Startup Inspector - http://www.windowsstartup.com/startupinspector.php

AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx

You can also use the following, along with Google, to obtain info on listed items you don't recognize: BC Startup Programs Database - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/ .

Worth reading, IMO: Slow Computer-browser Check Here First; It May Not Be Malware - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic87058.html

If you still insist on playing with services, for whatever reason, see XP Services Configuration, Black Viper .
