So I'm trying to optimize my PC. I'm going to "run" and typing "services.msc" Two of the services are: COM+ event system COM+ system application I'm unable to find enough info on the net to fully understand what these services are for. Can anyone give me a detailed, but layman's description of what these services are and if it is safe to disable them. p.s. I'll probably be posting quite a few of these threads.
