comment Services: Is there any real different between “Manual” and “Disabled”?
@Skybeam, So to answer my question... There's no difference between manual and disabled in terms of straight-up system resources?

comment Services: Is there any real different between “Manual” and “Disabled”?
You suggest looking at BlackViper for a good guide to what can be disabled... but you'll note that in his "safe" configurations he'll often change "Manual" to "Disabled" because a user is never likely to need those services. Why would he do that if there was no system resource gain?

comment Is it normal to get hundreds of break-in attempts per day?
Until we locked down all unnecessary external ports, I remember not only did we get lots of hack attempts, but one day it was so bad that we were being hacked from two different countries -- at the same time! So yes, 100s of break-in attempts is perfectly normal.

comment Weird memory usage in Windows Server 2008 R2
It's a setting within SQL Server Studio. Good luck!

Thanks. We've installed all the updates, and my someone else has decided to defragment the disks... Although I'm skeptical of the benefits of defragging, fingers crossed it will help.

Memory is most definitely NOT the problem. We have a 16GB machine, and even when 14GB+ is free, it's just as slow as ever. (Plus, we've already set the upper limit in SQL Server.)

You're right, it IS a Dell server. We don't have Dell OpenManage Server Administrator installed... but I can't seem to find a straight forward link to it, either. Hmm.

Yes, we have a hardware RAID controller on the machine. An SAS 6/iR (if memory serves). Is there a way to see that it's up to through Windows?
