1. you can get rid of parts like netmeeting and MSN using the add and remove windows components in the add and remove programs part of the control panel. Some items like windows messenger would require you to unhide them be removing the "hide" statement next to them in the sysoc.inf file. although unhiding some programs still doesn't mean you can un-install them

2. You can remove the little games, MSN, netmeeting, and a few other items

3. as for shutdown you might want to locate the waittokillservicetimeout in the registry under local machine, syste, controlset001, control and set it to a low number like 2000

hope this helps :)

If you have a Nvidia video card you should disable the Nvidia driver helper service. It's in Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services.

I've saved about 20meg by deleting a few folders.

1) Windows/Help/Tours

2) Windows/System32/oobe/Images

There's alot of other stuff you dont need, so far I've trimmed XP
back to 700megs.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
