Question about services running in windows 7

hi guys,

sorry if this is the wrong place to post this...

can anyone please tell me which services i can disable in msconfig please so i can free up my pc abit. i use my pc for gaming and internet browsing.
at the moment i have about 60 to 62 processes running in task manager but i don`t know what i need and what is safe to disable. i have already disabled java and adobe update services coz i have filehippo which helps me keep my programmes up to date.

Hello markshim

In my opinion you are best to leave the services alone, it will only cause you issues in the future and windows 7 runs perfectly fine on the default settings. If you want to speed up boot just disable items from the start-up tab only, nearly all can be disabled from the start-up list apart from your antivirus.
