PC Performance

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?
