By rrogers68 ·
What service should be shut down for gaming on XP? Besides spooler and autoupdate I need more detailed specs.

Thanks,
Rob

Here is another solution that I use every time I play games. It is a batch file that automatically stops unneeded services so you don't have to do it manually every time. It is called Stop Services and is a free download from pc world.

It is easy to figure out the code and I have modified my copy to include even more unneeded services so you can suit it to your needs. It should help enough though right out of the box.
