    Hello everyone,

    I see that there are a lot of tasks, services, and processes that are
    running. I'm sure that I don't need all of them, and would like to disable
    the unnecessary ones to save processing power.

    Is there a way to do this safely?

    Ideally, is there an application that presents to the user a list of yes/no
    questions that looks something like this:

    "Will you use a tablet PC? â–¡ Y â–¡N"
    "Will you use a mobile PC? â–¡Y â–¡N"
    "Will you be on a company network ? â–¡Y â–¡N"
    "Will you use an ISP? â–¡Y â–¡N"
    "Will you be using Bluetooth? â–¡Y â–¡N"
    "Will you be working with video? â–¡Y â–¡N"
    "Will you use remote connections? â–¡Y â–¡N"
    " etc. ..."

    After the user has made his/her selections, Vista will go and turn-off
    /disable all the tasks, processes, and services that are associated with
    those things that the user will not be using.

    I know there is already a "turn windows features on/off" but the features
    have very technical names that are hard to understand.

    If a user changes his/her mind, (s)he can go back into "Customize Windows",
    make the changes, and the application can automatically reinstate the
    relevant processes, services, and tasks.

    Thanks for your time and insight.
