DON'T TURN OFF ANY OF YOUR SERVICES! That will cause your computer to malfunction even more. In all likelihood, your computer is getting bogged down because of spyware or possibly trojans.

Go to the thread near the top titled "Essential Free Computer Programs". There you will find many free tools for cleaning out spyware and trojans.

for a list of services, and what is safe and what is not, and what the effects are, etc... black viper is pretty much the one to turn to:
http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm

adware,spyware, and malware are usually the things that make your computer go slow, not services. you could also have to many programs starting at boot, and these would be accessed/changed by using the "msconfig" utility. try searching for the malware first:

First of all ,make sure you click on “check for latest updates” before running any of these programs:

Download Ad-aware from here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware
Install by double-clicking on the downloaded file.
After installing but before running, update Ad-aware by using its Globe icon.
After updating, shutdown and restart Ad-aware.
Ad-aware is ready to scan and clean your system following these steps:

Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Scanning Engine:
"Unload recognized processes during scanning."
Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Cleaning Engine:
"Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."
Press "Scan Now"
Check option "Use Custom scanning options"
Check option "Activate In-Depth Scan"
Press "Select drives\folders to scan"
Select the active partition which is usually C:
Press "Next" to let Ad-aware scan your drives...
If it finds "bad" files and registry keys, press "Next" again
Right-click in that pane and choose "select all"
Press "next"
When it asks to remove all checked items, Press "OK"
Close Ad-aware, reboot your system and go on to Step 2 below.


Spybot S&D
The download for Spybot S&D is available here: http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=spybotsd
Install by double-clicking on the downloaded file.
Run Spybot S&D from desktop icon or Start menu.
Press "Search for updates" button to get list of updates available.
Press "Download updates" button.
Close all IE windows and close & restart Spybot S&D.
Press "Check for problems" button.
Have SpyBot remove all it marks in red by pressing "Fix selected problems"
Close Spybot S&D, reboot your system .

Also download and run CWShredder:
