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.
Very well put. I especially agree with "As you can see most of those are services for corporate type networking and for remote management". A single user has no need for it.

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.
I agree. But when it comes to microsoft, manual is not the same as disabled.

Manual services are interactive - they start as necessary.

Necessary for what? I think the point for some that are doing this is they feel the possibility exists that upon boot/desktop loading that some of these services that are on manual are triggered and then stopped at some point shortly thereafter. If the single home user has no need for these services to do that, then it's there choice to disable them. If at some point in the future it becomes needed for them to re-enable them, I'm sure with the help of BV's guide it would be easy enough to do so. Also, if it does nothing to your system speed or resource usage then it should make no difference if it's set to manual or disabled, right? So we're back to the point of, they start as necessary. It's not necessary for a non networked single home user to have those items in the first place but they do because the OS is a one size fits all. Some just want to tailor their's to more fit them with their usage and I wish them well in doing so.

The services are triggered if necessary, then end when necessary. Simple as that.

Well, perhaps after finding a good setup you could let the findings be known.

I'm a "single user". ( and single ) lol

No argument for me on that. I have already stated in this thread that Windows Seven does an excellent job of managing services and resources. Not being a Windows Seven programmer, I do not know if some, all or any of these services briefly run at startup or atany other time simply to see if they are needed - as a check. The ones I disabled, I know I do not need. This is simply for my edification and, like Greg, I am going to disable the components in the regisrtry.

I have backed up the registry and imaged my c: drive. If I screw something up and can roll back and will have learned what not to do.

And I did read BV's guide. Several of the services I disabled he said the he disabled also.

I had a lot of fun exactly a year ago during the cold months Vliting the heck out of Win7 to try to see how fast I could make it run on a 528 mb laptop, or at least claw back enough RAM to run Avast.

Even though I ultimately found that there were no service edits that would speed it up any faster than running retail Win7, I learned so much about the services and Windows 7. By the end of the process, I knew they had gotten it as lean as possible and Win7 was the Black Viper.

BTW, I'm still using my old beat up 528mb laptop on surf trips with Home Premium retail, only Defender and one gadget, but normal speeds for web surfing, word processing and watching vids.
