Windows 2000 services

   We are using Windows 2000 on all of our desktops.  Looking at the 'services' running, are there any obvious services that can likely be disabled?  Does this go far in improving performance?

   If these questions cannot be answered without a much greater knowledge of our environment; Could someone at least guide me to a better description of why each service is needed so I can analyze it's importance myself?  The short description in 2000 in the services list is not detailed enough in most cases.

   Again, does anybody know whether this is a good area to fiddle with in regards to system performance?

   Thanks, ET

Yes, I saw that page, but was looking for one with greater explanation of service function.  Thank you for the link, though.

Click on Reference on the Left and select "programs list", then click on any service to get Microsofts information on it. ;)
