    We are getting some complaints at another site that a number of people who installed SP1 today have had some of their Services disappear from the Services list (included are Alerter, Computer browser, Net logon, NT LM security support provider, Remote procedure call locator, and Workstation).

    I updated but still have all my services. I'm curious to know how many of you have noticed the same problem. It would be nice if we could find some commonality among those who dont.

    Thanks folks.

    Thanks - but this could be a very long list if everyone who has not had a problem responds. Maybe we should just shoot for those who are missing services. ;)

    Thanks again.

    Its like when I have to install XP, I love the app and what it does but I hate going thru all the options :p

    http://www.blkviper.com has the service tweaks if anyone is thinking of doing the same anyway...

    Just an advisory before going to Black Viper's excellent site for the first time (if I may, EP). First, the site is really not geared toward novice users, so be careful. Second, follow BV's often stated advice and don't disable too many services at once - make a few changes and give it a few days to see how things go. Then go back and make a few more, and so on.

    It's cumulative. And some services have greater effects than others - especially when disabled (ie, the time gained during gui loading with Workstation disabled).

    SP1 by PC Cillin is considered a trojan. After all it replaces serious system files and this is going to cause you to replace alot of them to me it is like have two copies of the same software on on brand new machine. When I defrag I see how much space it takes up, even tho I say DON'T archive it. This is from the XP download update site. Right now I am against it.
    MY XP Home machine runs great without it. And I cannot change the custom to MS at all. Weird junk. Also they made last minute changes so don't think the file on this or any other board is up to date.
