But, no 'operating systems' experience either, let alone MS versions...

BV is not all that bad. He does make sufficient disclaimer and does provide some good homework. I think he is penalized for the success of his thoroughness. He has the definitive layman's site on the subject matter. I cannot fault him for how the work is misused.

I used to buy and sell copies of a certain Cookbook - years ago. I did not condone its content - I was just making a 200% markup.

Listen to Antman & H2SO4 stay with 64Bit and if you must add 2gb of memory.

I personally don't need 70 services or 63 processes running, three quarters which I'll never use, that suck up system resources and present security risks.

For example, why is there services for Wireless enabled when I don't even have a wireless network adapter in my computer? IPv6 when my home network is IPv4? Windows Defender? UPnP? I don't need it. Things like that are pointless to me so I don't agree that the people who wrote Windows knows what's best.

Black Viper could be a pimple faced nerd for all I care. He's still cooler than Bill Gates, the guy who thought noone would ever need more than 640K of memory in their computer.

Agreed. Bill Gates is an idiot. Good point.

It is much wiser to enable services that will not be needed than it is to disable services that will be needed.

Elevate your perspective.

They make Windows for the average user. They know that computer techs and the type will go ahead and disable services they don't want. If something doesn't work, the same people that disabled services can usually figure out what the problem is. That's why there are services many people will never use auto enabled at default. Being Microsoft, it probably causes them to receive a lesser amount of support issue requests.

I think one of the mods perhaps blew away my earlier response to you, if I had to guess because I used a mildly derogatory (but mostly harmless) noun for a generic hapless computer end-user. (Or maybe I'm going senile and I forgot to click "submit"... it's hard to be sure.)

Anyway, I wanted to say that my comment was made in jest and that no disrespect was meant

The advantages of disabling all those services is highly overrated. Little to no gain what so ever by doing it IMO. This fact has been discussed on many forums. The ones who think otherwise are just fooling themselfs or just being foolish.

I disable a few services, but not for performance related puposes.
