From the Start orb, type Program and Features in the instant search field and select Turn Windows features on or off as shown in Figure A.

Depending on what features (Figure B) you are using in Windows Vista will have much to do with what you choose. For example, I do not play Windows Games and I would remove this feature. I would also remove Windows Ultimate Extras, Windows Meeting Space, Tablet PC, etc. You can remove the components you are not using until you have a finely tuned Windows Vista system.

I saw that and there is a lag from when I fix to when it shows up. Thanks. -ssw
