What are the absolute minimum services you need to have enabled on Win

2 posts in this topic

I was planning on creating an nLite-ed Windows 2000 install disc for my old HP Athlon 64 box, and I would like to know what services I could get away with disabling while at the same time preserving support for network file sharing and explorer.exe. The last time I tried doing this, I went a little bit crazy with disabling services, and I ended up with this nearly unusable setup where explorer.exe would refuse to start, and it was only able to start after re-enabling a bunch of arbitrary services, though I honestly can't remember which ones I had to re-enable. I understand that this machine should be able to handle Win2k just fine, but it only has 512MB of ram and I want to make the most of it.

Before anyone asks, I have almost no practical reasons for doing this. The box I'm going to be doing this on is my "guinea pig", so to speak. :D
