    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.

    Don't disable them skaught or you may hose a lot of your applications.

    COM is a microsoft technology that allows Windows applications to share controls (like buttons, list boxes, dialogs, etc.) written in any language. COM+ does the same thing but has more bells and whistles.

    What if I just switched it to manual? Would I save a significant amount of RAM by switching to manual?

    Most applications that use it assume it is already up and running. In other words, if you switched the service to manual (i.e. it's disabled until you manually start it) then applications that use it would probably crash.

    Nope.
