System services documentation?

Hi everyone:

I'm an ex unix admin and recently bought a laptop with windows 7 pre-installed.

Can anyone tell me where to find documentation related to the system services shown in msconfig? I've done google search and a search of the microsoft website but haven't found what I want.

I want documents explaining the cryptic service names, what they do and when they're needed.

Also, where would I locate information on general administration of windows7? Things like getting to the settings for devices like the wireless card, the real low level optismation stuff.

That's a start on what I want but it doesn't tell me what each service actually does. For instance, "application experience", is it asking me for my experience with a program or what?

I'm sure microsoft has some form of documentation that explains each service and what it does if only I search long enough or someone points me in the right direction (assuming that isn't considered proprietary information).

Microsoft may not tell you what all of them do but just give you a hint by the title. Doing a refined search for each will give you more information. I don't think I have seen them all listed in one place. If you find it post it back here. I hope I helped you get off to a great start.

linxt,

On the Blackviper site, you need to click on each service's hyperlink. That will take you to a wikipage with more detailed info about each service.

You can also download the MS Windows 7 product guide.

Another informative page is Sysinternals Learning Resources.

Thanks, Bill2, I'll have a look at those links and go back to Blackviper again too.
