NEVER disable services that way, go through the MMC console and click on "services"

Why can't I use msconfig to change my services?

The reason is because with msconfig and Hardware Profiles, you can disable services that may be vital to boot your system. With the management console (services.msc) you cannot. Also, msconfig, while unchecking the box, is disabling the service.

The "Disable All" button also scares me. It should not even be there as no reason exists to justify disabling "everything."

Not "allowing" people to use msconfig reduces the flames and technical support questions in my inbox from people that fail to read the descriptions I offer with each service and the warnings I attach to them.

@Duron: there is nothing "advanced" about it if you follow black viper's guide.

Still not answered my question. There is no other reason other then
"Not "allowing" people to use msconfig reduces the flames and technical support questions in my inbox from people that fail to read the descriptions I offer with each service and the warnings I attach to them"
which means nothing to me.
msconfig does exactly the same, and it is shorter to type :-)

If it's the effort you're worried about:

start-->control pannel-->administrative tools-->services

more mouseclicking but you don't have to waste energy trying to reach your keyboard

So it can **** up your sytem boot. Most tweaks can do that. There is no specific reason to use services.msc over msconfig, unless you are not certain what to disable and what not. And in that case, you better stay away from both of them, because you could **** up other less vital things, like your network connections etc.
(and I find typing easier )

So you're not in the conspiracy huh? Watch out, the wetteren folks are everywhere
