If you are running FS9 on Win XP using a user account with all possible
privileges (essentially an Administrator account) then it runs a lot
more services than you need as an ordinary user.  Unfortunately the
default installation of Windows sets up a single user PC with precisely
such an 'administrator' account - one of the reasons that Windows is so
vulnerable to viruses etc.  You could ease the load on your system by
setting up a separate 'Gerry - FS' user account with limited privileges.

Another suggestion is to track down the Black Viper recommendations on
which services can be disabled in Windows without breaking the system.
Black Viper and his original site seem to have disappeared from the
ether, but his material was so highly respected that you can still find
  it preserved elsewhere with a quick bit of Googling.  One such is
