Hello,
Yesterday I was viewing this thread in the helproom(I hope the link works),but now it is unavailable.

click here

I was disabling some of the services listed to improve performance.

Two of these were QoS RSVP and Zero Configuration.I asked the forum member who posted the thread a couple of questions about these services.But like I said it not available.

So,could you possibly help please.

If I was to disable QoS RSVP ,how would this affect my Virgin broadband,good or bad?.

If I disable Zero Config,how could this affect my wireless netgear router.

My PC is connected to the router via ethernet.It is not connected via wireless.If this service is disabled would it affect my router or wireless connection in any way.The only equipment connected via wireless is my laptop.

Thank you.

Cheers,

Zero config.

You will:

Lose your wireless connection on your laptop.

In short zero manages certain networking configurations on your PC. Disabling it is not advisable, and I would advise a full Anti-Virus, Anti spyware scan to see what you find.

You will nt beable to connect your machine by wireless to the router.

QoS RSVP
The following is a direct quote from Microsoft.

"There have been claims in various published technical articles and newsgroup postings that Windows XP always reserves 20 percent of the available bandwidth for QoS. These claims are incorrect. The information in the "Clarification about QoS in End Computers That Are Running Windows XP" section of this article correctly describes the behavior of Windows XP systems."

I'd suggest you read the entire Knowledge Base article Q316666 and decide for yourself whether you think this is needed.

Perhaps the thread has been removed because it is likely to cause more problems than it solves.

If you want SAFE ways of speeding up you PC just ask.
