1. Click Start
2. Click Settings
3. Select Control Panel
4. Double click Administrative Tools
5. Double click Services
6. Scroll down and highlight the service you want to adjust
7. Right-click on it and choose Properties
8. Click the stop button.
9. Select Disable or Manual in the Startup Type scroll bar.
Services to Disable:

  1. Smart Card / Smart Card Helper - If you don’t have a smart card system, you don’t need this service. As smart cards have really never taken off… i doubt you need this. Kill it.
  2. TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service - Unless you run NetBIOS on your system, you don’t need this service. Kill it.
  3. Uninterruptible Power Supply - Although I should have a UPS, I don’t. If you don’t, then disable this service.
  4. Remote Registry service - This service allows one to remotely edit the registry through a network connection. If you are editing your registry remotely, then you are too jedi-ninja to be reading this guide. The rest of us should have this off for security alone.
  5. Error Reporting Service - A program crashes and microsoft wants to know about it. Give up your extra CPU cycles to help Gates polish his OS, or you can just disable it.
  6. Wireless Zero Configuration - Unless you use wi-fi, you can safely stop this service. If you use wi-fi, this is actually a nice little service.
  7. Alerter - This is so useless SP2 turns this off for you. For the rest of you folks, you should turn it off too.
  8. Clipbook - This service allows you to cut and paste across your private network. Most programs that actually allow you to do this use their own ways for doing this.Useless.Stop it.
  9. Computer Browser - If you are on a LAN, keep it enabled. If not, stop it. It allows you to see the other computers on your network.
  10. FastUser Switching Compatibility - If you keep multiple users/logins on your current computer, you should leave this enabled. If you always log-in the same way as the same person, you should disable this.
  11. Messenger Service - Kill it, kill it. We’ve been saying to kill this forever.
  12. NetMeeting Remote Desktop Sharing Service - If you don’t use NetMeeting, you should stop this service.
  13. Network DDE/Network DDE DSDM - DDE DSDM was an excellent idea by Microsoft that flopped. Disable both of these.
  14. Remote Desktop Help Session Manager Service - I use remote desktop all the time. However, you should not have it enabled unless you use it.
  15. Telnet Service - This allows you to use telnet to log into your system from a remote location. It’s a security risk so don’t keep it enabled unless you use it.SP2 disables it by default now.

I forgot my login user name and password for my hp probook 4530s laptop how do i reset it


Hi,

This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and it is difficult to break into its password..

Ive forgoten my login password and i dont have a reset disc how can i get back in to my acer aspire l100


I believe probably the easiest and safest way for you is remove your Windows OS Passwords with Windows Password Recovery tools. I found a good one at http://www.reset-windows-password.com last week, and then I downloaded it and used it to remove the lost password within only few minutes. Furthermore, the powerful tool didn't cause a little data lose. It's worth an attempt.

I want to hack win xp admin password by guest their is error "access is denied" i hv try safe mode its no working


While you forgot windows os password, you can enter safe mode (F8 when booting up) to recover windows password while you forgot user account password, but when you forgot admin passwords, there's no way to change it, you should use utility to recover admin password. Last week, I forgot my Windows admin password. Last, I used Windows Password Seeker to remove the Windows password successfully. It's worth an attempt.

VTS Smart Card reader application


If you use a mac, which I assume you do since its posted in this catagory... then you must purchase VMWareFusion, and install it along with a Windows Operating System; for example, I have Windows XP on my mac. You have to open VMWare Fusion, and install your Windows, then open windows, then download the Smart Card reader software and install it.
I had to do this because I'm military and have to use my smartcard to digitally sign forms.

How to recover forgotten admin password for windows xp ?


Option 1: If the user you have is an administrator account, go to the control panel and select user accounts. When you are in user accounts, find the account you want to remove the password from and you will see the option there.

Option 2: If your user is NOT administrative, you can use ERD commander to reset it. You basically burn ERD onto a CD and it will boot when you restart. There is a program called Locksmith that will remove or change the password for you.

How to make smartcard logon as default logon for windows


Using smart cards with Windows 2000/XP is a two-fold problem.

First, you need to have the card manufacturer's Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP) installed. For Windows 2000/XP, the Schlumberger and Gemplus CSPs are installed and using a "Win2K Compatible" card from either of these vendors does not require the installation of additional software.

The second part to the involves getting a certificate in the correct format onto the card. Assuming you are refering to PKINIT, you will need to have a card with only a single certificate that follows Microsoft's "Smart Card Logon" profile. Additionally, you will need to do some configuration on the Active Directory side to make it work.

Microsoft summerizes the process in the following Knowledge Base article:
