    Lean Mean xp (xp sp2 home)

    Can anyone recommend a site or a procedure for getting xp in order. That is, what should and shoul not start at start up and optimizing the system in general?

    Hi Glen

    You could try Black Viper's site- plenty of optimisation info there.

    You can get a copy of the XP Tweaking Companion here. And here's a bonus .... I just came across Black Viper's original Services page that list's all the services that Windows XPstarts, what each one does and which can be disabled or must be left running.

    FWIW, Black Viper's site is toast. Hasn't been active for quite some time. See Doc's <post#=507,486>post 507,486</post: > for a link to an archived version.

    Lyra,

    I'm surprised you didn't know .... BlackViper's site has been off-line for 2 years now. That's why I said that finding his Services write-up is a bonus. I've been looking for it for almost a year. <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15> Maybe I found the archive then, 'cos I downloaded & printed off his services .pdf less than a year ago... Weird.

    Thanks for that link. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> Unfortunately, most of the links to articles and pages on the site are dead ends and images on the pages are not available. But it's good to know where to find what's left of a great site.
