Many of you may know that in Windows, there are many programs running in the background that start automatically when you reboot. These are called Services. What you may not know is that a large number of these are totally unnecessary for most users. Not only do these services slow down your system, they can be targeted by exploits that attack your system.

Here’s a great site that not only walks you through how to find these Services, but has a review of every one and a recommendation on whether you should disable it or not.
