Windows 7: Services. Which should be manual and/or auto?

30 Apr 2009   #1

Windows 7 build 7100, XP SP3
Services. Which should be manual and/or auto?

In our beloved Windows 7.
Can anyone lists the 'Services' that is better to be set to 'manual', beside the Services that is optional to be set to manual. And why?
Thanks before.

not needed

the genius of Windows 7 starts with all services not immediately needed being placed on triggers from manual. so there isn't any need to turn any off services except maybe Offline files if you have no need to synch any files across computers. if you are trying to claw back performance then the place to start is graphics effects (all sliding and fading, or aero for big savings) and indexing - uncheck from the disk properties.

Heres a nice freebie app that shows services and color codes them according to importance.
