Hi Everyone,

          On one of the commercials I was over hearing the other day, I understood there to be a program which functions similiar to the msconfig utility within Windows.  But, this program is interesting in that it gives a list of things which can be safely disabled at startup to speed up the pc.  At any rate, if someone knows the title of this program, could you possibly list it in addition to providing a direct download link for it?

          Thanks so much in advance for any help given to this post.

Black Viper http://www.blackviper.com/2008/05/19/black-vipers-windows-xp-x86-32-bit-service-pack-3-service-configurations/ gives a list of services which can be adjusted depending on various factors.

It isn't a program as such but may still be worth looking at.
