I've had the same install of Windows XP since 2007, and its built up quite a bit of cruft over time. Its mostly not a problem, other than very slow post boot initialisation, and a whole load of errors related to services which belong to things I removed - colinux driver and cdenable (from basalisk I think) - have been turning up on event viewer.
They do not however turn up in Windows services, msconfig or autoruns.
Where do I find these services? And how do I disable or remove them?
one example would be
The CoLinuxDriver service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the path specified.
