Services Remaining In Windows:
DCOM Server Process Launcher
Logical Disk Manager
Logical Disk Manager Administrative Service
Plug and Play
Remote Access Auto Connection Manager
Remote Access Connection Manager
Remote Procedure Call
TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper
Wireless Zero Configuration
All these services are enabled except “Print Spooler” which you will need to enable in “services.msc”.
To use the functionality you need, for example: a printer, just click the green square icon near the start button.
There you can double click the service you need to use and even a novice user can now read the service descriptions and decide what to enable and what to keep disabled.
For example if you have a Dial-Up connection (for example: ADSL Broadband) then it says “Dial-Up Connection” in the services as opposed to the long and overly technical descriptions put in by Microsoft by default.
The services window can be set so you can see all service names and all columns in the services window are fully visible. Just click “Standard” at the bottom and double click all the columns at the top where the top row joins the columns. When you install some programs, they might put a new service in and add their own long and overly technical descriptions, nevermind, its nice whilst it lasts.
