Top speed Win2000 / XP
Always wanted if you could do that something extra to add more speed to you windows 2000 or XP..

Then here is an article for you. You can speed up the whole system if you can get rid of some of the unnecessary services running in the background.

Just follow the instruction of how to go about it and I bet you will be more happy with your windows 2000 / XP box 🙂

What we are going to do is:

Change the startup type of a few unneeded services from Automatic to Manual.

To begin => open the Control Panel => open the Administrative Tools folder => double click the Services tool.

When you see the Services window, set the View to Detail if it isn‘t already.

Click the Startup Type column header to sort the services by Startup Type.

When you do so, all the Services that start automatically will appear at the top of the list.

Now as you run through the list of services on your system whose Startup Type setting is set to Automatic, look for the services listed in Table A and check the conditions. These services are good candidates to be set to a Manual Startup Type.

Table A: Services that can be changed to Manual Startup Types.

Set the following services to manual mode IF

[If you are using your computer as a stand alone personal computer then in all probability most of the conditions are fulfilled ]

DHCP Client You‘re not connecting to a specific DHCP server on your local network
Distributed Link Tracking Client You‘re not connected to a Windows 2000 domain
DNS Client You‘re not connecting to a specific DNS server on your local network
FTP Publishing Service You don‘t need your system to act as an FTP server
IIS Admin Service You don‘t need your system to act as an WWW server
IPSEC Policy Agent You‘re not connected to a Windows 2000 domain
Messenger You‘re not connected to a Windows 2000 domain
Remote Registry Service You don‘t remotely access the Registry of other systems on your local network
RIP Service You don‘t need your system to act as a router
RunAs Service You don‘t use any applications that run as an alias
World Wide Web Publishing Service You don‘t need your system to act as an WWW server

If you find a match and think that your system doesn‘t need that particular service, right-click on the service and choose the Properties command from the shortcut menu. When you see the Properties dialog box for that service, click the Startup Type drop down list and select Manual. Then click OK. As you change the Startup Type for any service, take note of the service‘s name. That way you‘ll have a record of which services you changed and can change them back if you need to.
