Hi I have 4 services in my management console - (start, control panel, admin
tools, computer management, services and applications, services) that I
would like to remove.

I used to have a method of removing these - but cant remember how to now.

Any assistance appreciated.

Hi Doug,

Some services are necessary, even though they may not appear to be. Often,
they support some other process, so disabling them is not recommended unless
you know exactly the implications of it. You do not need to remove them, you
can simply disable them via the services tab of msconfig, or by double
clicking them from the services snap-in and setting the startup type to
disabled.
