Windows 7: Changing startup services

Changing startup services

good People,

This is the most complete list of settings for services that I've found.

This list was also generated by a true professional, MSCE, MVP, and author.

For EverydayUser, I recommend to just leave well-enough alone and change nothing. For the tinkerer and those who want to get the highest possible performance, take a look at this url:

No offence meant Karl but IMO, Blackviper is a much better site for at least 2 reasons. It categorizes tweaks as "Safe", "Tweaked" and "Barebones" apart from Default. This is something even a layman can grasp. On the page you have linked, the author has simply given a "possible startup mode list" without enlightening us how he arrived at it. E.g. he has disabled all bluetooth startup services which a user may be using extensively.

Secondly, Blackviper links every service in the list to a wiki description so the user can make an informed decision on what mode to use.

Of course, if you believe that Windows 7 requires no tweaking, then both sites are useless for you.
