o Windows Defender
o Windows Error Reporting Service
o Windows Firewall
o Windows Time

Disable these services by right click on them, then Properties, then change the startup type to be (Disabled)

• If you are worried about the effect of disabling these services, well, I have been turning them off since nearly a month now, and never had any problem. If you are a stand alone user who accesses the internet by wireless or by Ethernet cable, and normally printing, and using Wireless/Bluetooth communications, you will never get any problem. Delightfully, You will gain all the resources consumed by these services. It will save a lot of battery power, memory, and processing power.""

Just a question , do any of these affect the edge modem's functionality? Thanks!!


Disabling the Windows Firewall is not recommended unless you running an alternative security suite. The fact that you haven't had a problem in a month doesn't mean you are not doing some damage.

yeah this forum is the best with great community!! Without this site, I would have sold my UX long ago. Instead, I ended up buying a 2nd one. I now have 2 UX that tripleboot mac osX, Windows 7 and XP.

Thanks again and keep up the good work!!!

In Ubuntu, it was very fast, but I cameras, and customized hardware button was sacrificed, and finger print sensor to disable functionality.If you are concerned about the impact these services, well, I have them has been turned off since about a month now, and never had a problem.

hey you can just install patches into ubuntu and you can get the front camera going. The finger print reader works too perfectly but requires a bit of tweaking to get it going. I can even program most of the buttons on the ux.

Have been using ubuntu 10.04 for over half a year now, upgrading from XP pro, and will never go back.

Difference is ubuntu will multi task and work comfortably with 512mb ram. Xp struggles with this when pushed to multitask. Now with 1gb ram ubuntu just flies and does virtual xp with ease.
