I'm using a bunch of debuggers, IDEs. They install a huge load of software on the PC and some of them also runs as service (I could write a batch file for this though). When I try to uninstall them, it is really hard to remove one.
Since I have a license for VMWare Workstation , I thought installing XP into a guest and using the stuff there. However, I have a question. VMWare runs some services (which I couldn't stop since it kills my networking if I do).
Is runing vmware that resource hungry? (Not when running the guest, but when it actually just stays in the background, runs as a proccess).
By the way I use Win7 x64, and VMWare 7.1 workstation.
