I think that I only disabled three services that were set to automatic.
According to my notes,
Distributed Link Tracking Client, Disabled
IP Helper, Disabled
Offline Files, Disabled
I didn't change anything that was set to manual. I may have also disabled windows search, but I think I just disabled that in the control panel uninstall software utility.
Is there anything there that may have caused an issue?
I really don't like the fact that windows forces you to have everything under the sun installed on your computer, weather you use it or not, and just lets you enable/disable things. I guess it's easier for them to support, but I buy OEM installers that they don't support anyway. My install is like 13GB, which is like 7 times larger than an Ubuntu 64-bit OS. Good thing drive space is pretty cheap now.
It does seem that Windows 7 doesn't need to be tweaked as much as XP did, but it also seems to be pretty inflexible. I probably just need to learn it better. LMHmedchem
