Windows 7: Black Viper

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

I looked at his suggestions and found that most of what he suggested to disable, I needed anyway.

Windows 7 build 7201

Well, like I said, there are many tweaks he offers but you need to use them according to your needs. For me, I avoided the ones for wireless networking as I'm on a home based wireless network.

If you still feel uncertain, do one tweak at a time and see if it works. If not, move on to the next. If there is, just reverse the tweak. It is that simple. But always back up your registry before you dive in for the first time.

same here, and for those I do NOT need I can't see why I should switch them from manual to disabled, at least not for reasons of performance.
Or is there any?

Btw, my first post here, please excuse my bad grammar/spelling I am neither a native speaker nor a IT-pro, but I enjoy reading the threads here a lot, nice forum!

Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

Hi ja1lb0t and welcome to Se7en Forums

I don't normally change any of my services settings unless there is a specific reason for doing so. Black Viper's site is a useful reference site that goes into depth about the function of Windows services, how they interact with each other and the consequences of disabling a particular service.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 build 7100 <3 <3 <3

Well, yes, some good infos on services, and yes, I also normally don't alter them (anymore),BUT it took me quite some time (the last two years actually) and messed up weekends to learn that I belong to the "5%" minority of his "95%" SAFE configurations

Windows 7 Ultimate x32

hi! me again

i used that guide too. So far it hasn't messed up anything, that i didn't do myself (i fried my registry the other day) i sugguest you read carefully, the names of the services, or you'll wind up wondering why disk-defrag doesn't work, and stare at the troubleshooter for 2 hours like a jackass .... but enough about me, lol

Windows 7

I used to be a services tweaker... but I recovered. Now I ignore all these tweaking sites, or at best go read them and laugh. While I think Black Viper does a superb job, I love reading his "99.99% of people don't need this service" and thinking "well, I do and so does everyone I know..."

Windows 10 Pro x64 x3, Ubuntu

I think with Windows 7 the number of services that are set to automatic is set as low as possible by default.

As the other possibly required services are set to manual they will be started as they are needed.

If you use a service all the time that is set to manual start there is a case for setting this to automatic.

I cannot see the need to disable a service set to manual as it should never be started and therefore should not use resources

Black Viper Tweaks

I tweaked my services last night using his Windows7 RC recommendations

won back about 150 megs RAM and a noticable boost in start up time - so far no problems...

I would say use with caution and read the infos carefully, and you canīt go wrong.
