    AMD Athlon 64 3800+
    Radeon 9600xt Bravo
    1gb RAM
    2400 Ghz
    200gb Maxtor SATA Hardrive
    Creative SBLive! 5.1
    450 power supply

    yeh i defrag like once every two weeks or so. mp3s take ages to load up (when winamp isnt already on) and also media player classic is really slow too...actually most programs take ages to load up :S

    I find this page helpful http://www.theeldergeek.com/services_guide.htm
    Some services may not be required in your personal setup....ex. printer spooler if you do not have a printer setup Other services install themselves with programs examples are diskeeper or sisoftsandra. With these I disable them until I need to run the program...
