    Re: Help with XP Computer Management Console

    Computer Management is a collection of Windows administrative tools that you can use to manage a local or remote computer.It allows you to control several aspects of the system from one location. It is designed to assist the support tech in performing basic troubleshooting and maintenance tasks on a client computer.The tools are organized into a single console, which makes it easy to view administrative properties and to gain access to the tools that are necessary to perform your computer-management tasks.

    Under Services And Applications there are all services that run by an OS. Out of all those services some are optional and some services are necessary for the functioning of the system. Windows XP treats a service similarly to a program, so if an OS function were to have a problem, only the service associated with the function would shut down, leaving the remainder of the OS functional. The actual set of tools and services that is listed in Computer Management depends on the services that are installed on the host computer.

    You can start, stop, pause, resume, or disable a service.Use Services to manage services on local and remote computers. Use WMI Control to configure and manage the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service.Use Indexing Service to manage the Indexing service, and to create and configure additional catalogs to store index information.
