Ever since my computer got some spy-ware all my services were disabled. I got rid of all the spy-ware thanks to you guys, but my services are still done for!

My internet doesn't work unless I run random services that I have no clue what they do.

Can someone tell me the essential services to run so I can get my computer running well again?

Hi "Atomic" :

Be very careful IF you have followed Black Viper's "Safe" category recommendation for
"Background Intellent Transfer Service" of "Disable", since the info from the "Services" Guide
of Tweakhound found at : http://www.tweakhound.com/xp/xptweaks/supertweaks6.htm
says this canNOT be "disabled" and use Windows Update !? Also if you use "Fast User Switching
Compatibility", then the "Terminal Services" should NOT be disabled. And by personal experience,
I found Black Viper's "SAFE" recommendation of "Disable" for "System Restore Service" prevented
my registry cleaner from running.

There are some "recommmended" settings by Tweakhound that seem "suspect", so best to view the
info from both "Guides" to determine which ones "fit" your particular computer .
