If you are buying a new computer with Windows XP systems and some third-party applications installed, you will probably see over 100 Windows services configured on your computer.

But over 75% of those configured services is not required to run for your normal activities on your computer. You should read our Windows service tutorials one by one, and stop or disable unnecessary services as much as possible.

At the end, you should see only a short list of Windows services that are running after you restart you computer as showing in this picture:

By stopping and disabling unnecessary Windows services, you can easily free up about 200MB on your computer. This will give you computer a big boost in performance.
