PC Performance

windows 7 pro
i have admin rights.

I messed with msconfig and shutdown some services that i thought were unnecessary.  
applications that have been open for awhile seem to run fine and are responsive.

when i click on my computer... it takes a long time for it to bring up the resources.
it also takes a long time to initiate applications.  once the my computer interface is established, it browses around the directories at a quick enough pace, but still slower than before.

does anyone know what my effect the inital my computer initialization to become so slow... a setting i might have messed up?

the 3 services mentioned are turned on
ran the sfc check with a restart

no improvement
I have logged into this workstation with a different user, disconnected the workstation from the network,
sill no improvement on initiating the my computer applet, or browsing networks.

while the computer is in a period of time between me initiation the my computer applet and until the time it comes up,  other applications become much less responsive.

any thoughts?

btw, don't think you can DELETE services from msconfig, only disable them.  So, moderately easy to re-enable?
