First, stop disabling services. This will only lead to potential problems, and gain nothing in terms of performance. This isn't XP, so don't treat it like XP.

Second, do not disable ReadyBoost. It includes something called ReadyBoot, which aids in optimizing boot processes and times.

I'm not sure how many more times it needs to be typed, but the best tweaking advice for Windows 7 is...leave it alone.

stereo, I noticed quite a bit of threads like this from you. As a friendly suggestion, just enjoy using your computer. There is no magic tweak or setting that's going to gain performance. Make sure you have the OS and drivers up to date, and go on using the computer.

^^^^^^^

take it from somebody who is an obsessed tweaker , if your disabling for extra/faster performance forget it , disabling any running windows service will have zero effect on performance , ive tweaked , disabled , and turned off everything you think you dont need and have then tested every game and benchmark to destruction and gained absolutely bugger all

and one day you'll run somthing or install something and it wont work , and you'll spend HOURS trying to figure out why , then when you re-eanble those windows services you'll finally find out why , as long as you think to do it in the first place.........ive been there

Ready Boost is run by the System32\Emdmgmt.dll. If you disable this .dll, there will be no Ready Boost. But it will not buy you anything.

Ok guys,i know you right. I will leave alone the services, but there are still some "parts" and i have to say,i don't need at startup "java / ym/ skype" and so many more.
Maybe,the best i could do,is to purchase 2 GB RAM,but for the moment i'm happy with my 3 gb ddr3. SSD would be better,i think.
I'm new with OS Windows 7,and i need some time to understand this OS
That's why i'm here on this forum.
PS : I can't understand why Microsoft removed the option in windows explorer to turn off auto arrange ( folders )

There is a HUGE difference between disabling windows services and removing some apps from running at system boot. HUGE.

Disabling Windows Services = bad and useless to performance
Disabling unnecesaary third-party apps from running at boot = excellent, should be done, will save on memory and boot time.

If you are able to dish out the 100 bucks for the SSD, go for it. You will not regret it - guaranteed.

so for what you must to disable as the service didn't disturb you.
