Windows XP Home and Professional Service Pack 2 Service Configurations

BlackViper has posted different setup of services on Windows XP Home and Profressional Service Pack 2. It suggested the default services may not be ideal for some of the users. There are three suggested sets of configurations to suit different needs:

  • “SAFE” Configuration ~ This is the configuration that 95% of the people will be able to use with little or no side effects. It will also minimizes the amount of “errors” that is reported in the Event Viewer. This does not guarantee it will work for you, but if adjusting your services scares you, this configuration would be a good starting point.
  • Power User Configuration ~ This is the power user setup. A great way to test this setup is here. This setup is a system that connects through a network (such as a gateway / router) to the internet, provides file and print sharing resources and gaming enjoyment. Some things may not function with this setup. No passwords save. Its use is not for a computer with analog modems or some direct DSL/cable connections. Try the “Safe” Configuration first.
  • Bare Bones Configuration ~ This is the super geek setup. A great way to test this setup is here. This setup is a system that connects through a network (such as a gateway / router) to the internet with a static IP address. This system does not provide file and print sharing resources, nor have the ability to print. Its use is not for a computer with analog modems or many direct DSL/cable connections. You can use this configuration for extreme tweaking and testing purposes. Many things may not function with this setup. No passwords save. The Event Log will display “errors” of not being able to start certain services. Built in Windows CDR-RW functions may no longer work. Please do not ask, “How do I fix” questions while using this configuration. The answer will be “Use SAFE.” This information’s intention is for reference only.
