How many services do you have running after startup?
Just curious to know how many services people seem to have running once they have booted up. I have just done a fresh install and i find myself having 41 processes running after startup. I have gone through the menu and set a few to manual as things like the team viewer service etc i dont use very often.

I don't know what the tech did at the time. But it is not advisable to disable services - even if they are not running at this time. Once they are needed and disabled, your system will come to a screeching halt. And besides, there is nothing to be gained by disabling them.
