Disable Homgroup Tweak!!

Just going through the services to see what was enabled / disabled I Noticed the homegroup services. I read the description and thought I don't use that, so I disabled them Both.

HomeGroup Listener Services:
Makes local computer changes associated with configuration and maintenance of the homegroup-joined computer. If this service is stopped or disabled, your computer will not work properly in a homegroup and your homegroup might not work properly. It is recommended that you keep this service running.

HomeGroup Provider
Service:
Performs networking tasks associated with configuration and maintenance of homegroups. If this service is stopped or disabled, your computer will be unable to detect other homegroups and your homegroup might not work properly. It is recommended that you keep this service running.


Now when I start any programs they open a lot quicker than they used too, Photoshop & Windows Media Center is almost instant, Explorer seems a lot more responsive.

Warning: Make sure you don't use HomeGroup before disabling the Services!!

Post feedback if you try this please.
