That's what I meant earlier, if you forget about Samurize, I got 39 start-up processes. I don't think I ever go up to 70 with all programs open - I just don't use 40 programs at a time

EDIT: right now I've got 56 services running. There are lots of them listed in the Task manager as stopped. Not sure if all of those were running at start-up.

Hmm I just got this laptop from Asus and have installed only a few things. I try to keep things from running at startup. if I need to run a program, I will run it.

Asus had some pre-installed software, and it loads automatically. I dont use all these programs everyday, yet they load on startup. I use Process Explorer from sysinternals, so I don't know how many processes are listed in Task manager. Process Explorer lists everything the system is using. I do know I am not running 40 programs on startup. At max, probably 5 programs are running at startup: MSE (anti-spyware) and all of asus's crap lol

I will have to look later and see what services I am running on startup, how many actual programs are running and how many processes are listed in Task Manager.

That might be why your number is higher then others. I think others are reporting processes.

Deal with Startup items in msconfig.

I uncheck everything in Startup tab except MS entries for Gadgets and Stiky Notes, plus my AV. That's it.

PC starts up in seconds and is never less than instantaneous, on all of my machines.

Accept no free riders on your Startup and you won't be slowed down.

No doubt there are some services that do run during startup - or shortly thereafter if they are delayed. - then stop themselves when no longer needed. That is the beauty of manual in Windows 7.

Greg, like you, I have only the bare essentials run at startup - gadgets, av, firewall, wireless.

Carl, even the wireless entry in msconfig might be unnecessary if it is the maker's connection manager - tends to conflict with Windows connection manager which is pretty much perfect in Win7 (complete with troubleshooter that actually fixes things).

I just disabled a friend's HP connection manager and it sped up his startup/shutdown times by 30 seconds.

Actually, it is the MS services for wireless that are loading at startup.

You know.. it's funny.. some services depending on which thread/tutorial you read can be safely disabled.. but other sites say otherwise. Like the power services.. it's like the two authors have different understanding of what the service actually does or how it works.. I suppose you have to be redundant in your information gathering.

Some sites say use msconfig and others say never use msconfig but use services.msc instead.

Why would services.msc be better to use than msconfig? They never explain this.

A lot of services are grouped by categories it seems.. for instance there are a set number of services that only work with bluetooth. But nothing tells you this.. you find this out by researching.. I may make a tutorial with services grouped by category. This way, if your know you don't need a certain category on your machine, you can look at the whole list of services for that category and disable them. This way we could create profiles or user configurations that will let the user optimize his computer for the type of work he does.

That would take a while to get together LOL. But I think it's possible. If I were better with Visual Basic.. (God that would be tons of hooks) I could write an app that does it.. just check the radio button for the category to disable it.

Msconfig is just a front end that combines a bunch of things in to one interface.

Useing the useing the MMC snap in services allows you to get right into the services and configure more options. The MMC snap in also allows connecting to other computers on the network to configure there settings as well so it is more useful from an administrator point of view.

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!...
