Windows 7: Need Full Windows Services List

I am in complete agreence with you Dark (was that even a work???).

Why does the OS need to do all these unnecessary things while I am trying to do the things I want or need to?

Further what bugs me is there is still more going on behind services and behind the task scheduler that we have no control over.

I think I need to switch to linux... I wonder if they have fixed the CPU scheduler yet...

I never care about which services are running- Microsoft knows a billion times more than I do about their operating system. Disabling services can only cause trouble.

Thanks for posting that and trying it out. I saw that on the site, but I hadn't tried it. good to know. all of those programs are top notch esp. ProcessExplorer and AutoRuns

DarkPhoenix you may want to have a look at scheduled tasks in Windows 7 more so than services I think you will be shocked when you see whats scheduled to happen and the event triggers also it sounds like to me that using Vlite on your installation disc would be right up your alley you could pretty much strip out anything you don't want prior to installing Windows

None of them. In Win 7, I've made the choice to leave it alone. In Xp, after disabling alot of safe services, I was presented at the time with what appeared to be bugs which turned out to not be bugs. It was because certain services were disabled. Just for the record, I wasn't warned by anything that the services were disabled either. The false bugs didn't appear right away after disabling the services which through me offtrack as to what the problem really was.

7 turns on services when it needs to. DON'T touch them. It will be a nightmare troubleshooting the side effects. Services also depend on other services. Honestly, why are people still concerned with resource usages? Hardware is cheap and you should never bother touching bits of OS to save 3MB. Put in 8GB of RAM, defrag your HDD, or run wiper.exe on an SSD, ensure your PC has enough grunt and get on with your life. 7 knows what its doing. That's what you pay Microsoft for.

With respect.. that is not what I pay Microsoft for. I pay for this system so I can learn about it, then cut 3/4's of it out and rebuild it in my own image.

Do I trust Microsoft to know what's best for the operating system I wish to use? No Way. Not since Bill stole the designs for the winows graphical user interface from Xerox and windows wants to phone home even if you tell it not to.. I use Windows operating systems to take advantage of the little good that's in it. If I were not a hard core gamer, I would chuck this system and use a version of linux.

Unfortunatly, the programs I want to run are made for this platform. When React OS grows up (a free version of windows xp) or Linux or another OS gets the ability to run all Microsoft compatible programs, I will leave MS in the dust.

I'm old enough to remember Microsoft as a small company. I remember all the dirty shady deals they tried to pull to try to get ahead. Most people in the know were shocked they ever made it to the top without some mafia type gangster getting in the way and taking them down. Trust them?? Not as far as you would trust Fidel Castro or Sadam Hussain.

A good free utility to keep a record of the current state of your services is
FREE PC Profile, Audit, and Diagnostic Report Utility

You can set it to only create a report of the services. It generates an html page with a frame but with an editor it doesn't take long to convert this to a simple html page you can print out. Once you get your settings stable, if you are not sure if something got changed, you can pull the print out from a drawer, or if you are setting up another PC and want to make sure the settings are the same for services.

The printout has nice color codings. A nice way to avoid manual logging.

Cut it and it will break - 7 knows exactly what it is doing.

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!...
