It got installed normally.

Apologize if my simple, silly questions are bothering you.

I had and have the highest respect for you, have assisted me a lot. No offense intended, am ready to pay for all your expertise, just PM your Paypal or Banking details, I'd be glad to.

Installed all 3..... KB3020369, KB3138612 and now this KB3042058, now my W7 is current and no important updates are available, as shown in the screenshot.

My queries were simple that do I need both the 1st 2. (KB3020369, KB3138612 ), which I think I did...

Thanks again and kindest regards.


PS: Now going to do a final clean reinstall, hope it goes better than this......

Hi,

Why create an image....don't feel there is any need.

Thanks for the advice.

Best regards!

Hi,

Gotta a few questions regarding W7 Pro 32 bit services, on my laptop, with only 4 gigs of memory.

See approx 44 processes, using 37% of physical memory with CPU usage varying from 0-10%.

Changed 2 services to manual i.e Print spooler and media player sharing.... System stable none issues with check for updates etc....now processes have dropped to approx 36 physical memory to 30-32.

What other services can I safely disable to reduce usage of physical memory... Like Offline pages, Portable media, indexing etc..with out compromising stability and general functionality?

Hoping to hear from you.

Best regards.



PS: BTW I didn't reinstall...

I've turned off indexing on all my systems (7, 8.1, 10) and it doesn't cause problems for me.
I mostly use File Locator Lite rather than Windows search as it doesn't use indexing, and is easier to use for me.

Thanks DavidE for replying with your expert comments.

1. Is turning off Print spooler and media player sharing fine for me. Could I change any other services too?

2. Indexing when turned off on the drive, what is it's linked service?

3. Is File locator Lite an app, care to post a download link?

Thanks again.


Edit:

I see another process, MSspellchecking facility........how to disable it?

1 ) I don't know, i don't turn off print spooler, media player sharing, or any other MS services without researching.
I want the print spooler running, i use it.
I don't know if there is a service for media player sharing, i disable what i don't want running in program configuration, such as the Windows Media Player configuration.

2) Here is a tutorial by Brink:
Index - Enable or Disable
I'm on 8.1 right now and the service name is Windows Search

3) File Locator Lite download:
