Then it is okay.

You may want to look at blackviper.com and maybe turn off some of the services that are not needed using this guide:

http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm

It will help reduce some of the possible un-needed services, save some computer resources and to a certain degree enhance security.

Ports and services guide from MS for a reference is found here:

It will give some sort of guide.
