BunBun, in the add/remove programs section you should also be able to add/remove windows components. Some of the stuff you are looking for might be in there.

Yeah I have removed what I can from there. But aspects of those things are still in the system. Dont get me wrong I like how theres more in that list now but there needs to be more and more options.

I want the bare minimun services running to let the OS do One Job Only - The One Job it was designed to do.. Run my software when I tell it to. Nothing more.
Well what's the final verdict? Can you give us a list of services that you modified and a brief description as to why they weren't needed for you and your setup?

The first screen shot are my disabled services. The next are services I am planning to disable. In addition to these, there are three more I will disable.

Thanks Carl, I've went over mine and compared them to yours. Of the ones you have disabled, mine are/were set to manual. A few I had already disabled but now I'm disabling all of these for a while and will see how it goes.

Thanks Greg. As you can see most of those are services for corporate type networking and for remote management which more than likely I will never use. If and when I purchase Bluetooth stuff I will put that one on manual. I fully realize these services would most likely never run anyway set on manual.

The remote management stuff I disabled out of my security paranoia.

Frostmourne and Hubris, it may well be pointless; I am most certainly not experienced enough to argue that. But for me it is learning experience of how my system works. And that is not pointless to me; it is knowledge.

What, you saying it's pointless or the fact that some want things their way? I failed to mention that I'm testing this for someone. I've already said early on that I don't see the need for it but am willing to test it for possible gotchas. I'm ready to rollback at the click of a button. In addition to the screeny I posted, I've unchecked the ipv6 and disabled all components in the registry.

Its pointless because it does nothing to your system speed or resource usage.

Can anyone send me a list of default services
I used to turn off unnecessary services of windows. However, I did the same thing to Win 7 which is obviously out of my previous knowledge. The worst is I can not use outlook to send email now:cry:. Can anyone export your default services list of Windows 7 and send it to me? Thank you very much!...
