Windows 7: performance boost

performance boost

Hello. I'm trying to boost my performance while playing games. I checked out Black vipers website and that helped me quite a bit. But, The thing is... Every time I boot windows all the services I disabled are back. I'm pretty sure you can do this... but I have no idea. I tried google but I can't seem to word it together properly. So how do I make it so windows will save the state my PC was in after the configuration and when I do restart it will ask me if I want to boot with the custom config or normal windows. Or is this even possible? For some reason I remember hearing about doing this.

You could try putting the computer to hibernate. That saves your session to the hdd but stops all power going into the machine (like powering off, unlike standby). Hibernate is awesome. When you press the power button, within a fraction of your normal boot time, it's back to where you where before, with the processes you killed still dead.

If you think disabling services helps for your specific purpose, I'll go by it. How are you disabling them? Click start button, type services.msc, then hit Enter. Any service you want to disable, double click on it and in the lower panel stop it. After that, in the upper panel, change Startup type to Disabled, that'll prevent it from restarting at subsequent boots.

You cant set different windows services for different users or be prompted to choose a services profile. For user apps though you can add/remove startup shortcuts selectively for different users.

Startup Programs - Change

Or you can create a batch file to disable services inside windows. E.g. see here.

Clickable service start/stop cmd or bat file. Possible?

Just remembered a really awesome piece of software. It's called 'soluto' and has a really nice interface that let's you disable services on startup, shows you how long they take etc. It halved my boot time and made the PC run faster.

Nb you can also 'delay' services as well as completely disable them.
