In MSconfig under the Services, does anyone know what services are safe to disable? I've already disabled windows messenger and print spooler but I'm using my printer again and it only worked when I enabled it again.

There are defenitly some that could do so harm (not permenate) when disabled, but go with your gut and if somthin starts acting up afterwards reset the defults.

And NightCrawler Means "Use at your own risk"

Only disable one at a time and read BV's warnings and descriptions closley. Also, its a good idea to keep notes one what you changed when doing this (trust me).
