...for an answer to your issue. It's a couple of post further down in the :

Still, there are other ways to shut down unnecessary programs and services in Win2000, as I mention in the link above and at the bottom of the original tip in the link below:
How To Shut Down Unnecessary Start Up Programs
Hope this helps.
