How many services do you have running after startup?

Hi all

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.

How about you guys?

I have a question within the Service area....
I can't count all of them but I see many running and many stopped.
Is the box checked when you go to Services for Hiding all MS products?

A couple years ago, my OS was either XP or Vista HP, I had a home tech come in and he disabled all of them and rebooted.
Is that advisable to do with Win 7 HP?

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.
