Windows 7: Windows and Application Services and Sheduled Tasks in startup

Windows and Application Services and Sheduled Tasks in startup

Hello everybody,

I have found a system utility called Baidu PC Faster that gives me a report about Windows and Application Services and Sheduled Tasks in startup. Since now I haven't found a better program for listing as many services and tasks in startup as Baidu does.

Let me be more specific. Baidu says I have 40 windows services in startup. It also says I have 22 scheduled tasks in startup. Wow, isn't that too much? Isn't that a reason for the slow start up of my computer? How can I decide what services / tasks to turn off?

What is the best way to manipulate all these services and tasks if I wish my computer to run fast and smooth? I don't think it a smart idea to search the Internet and learn about all these services and tasks. I don't want to become a Win 7 startup services/tasks expert! The only thing I want is my computer to run fast. Furthermore, I don't like the idea to constantly supervise tasks and services of my operating system.

Your comments are welcome,

Not sure I would trust baidu. The simplest way to do this is to open msconfig. Check the Startup tab, then check the services tab, while enabling "hide microsoft services".

Here's the list of all 40 windows services found on my computer. Isn't that too much? Do I need them all? Are there any other free computer programs that can list all windows services?

Which services can I turn off to speed up my boot time?

Thanks in advance for answering my post!

Perhaps you can gain some information here: Black Viper’s Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Service Configurations » Black Viper | this is only related to the Windows services NOT to installed program services.

I disabled application info and application update in services.msc
And now I am so screwed. I can't even open services.msc, I can't install an update, I can't run updates and I can't re enable anything because I can't get into services to do it. Please don't say system restore because I disabled it. If you say get a mac, then yes, I agree!:D
