How To Fix a Slow Computer by Disabling Unnecessary Windows Services

How To Fix a Slow Computer by Disabling Unnecessary Windows Services


Here is a list of unneeded Windows services that you can turn off to speed up your slow computer: _ AdobeLM Service: Not all computers have this service, still it is useless. Just disable it if you have it running on your machine. (Some readers have pointed out that by disabling this service you may have startup and registration issues with Adobe software.) _ Alerter: Disable this one if you are not on a network because you will not receive alerts. _ Application Layer Gateway Service: Unless you want to share your Internet connection, turn this off as this service provides support for 3rd party protocol plug-ins for Internet Connection Sharing _ Application Experience: Windows 7 users can safely disable this service and gain increased responsiveness at launch time. _ Application Management: Set this to manual. _ Automatic Updates: Disable it if you do not require auto-updating and patching of Windows. It is pretty useless if you use auto-patcher by NeoWin to update your Windows OS. Thus, you will save bandwidth. _ Background Intelligent Transfer Service: Disable this if you do not need Automatic Update as well. This is also a potential security threat as it uses idle network bandwidth to transfer data. _ ClipBook: Disable this if you are not on a network, since you do not need to share anything. _ Computer Browser: Disable this too if you are not on a network, as you do not need to browse and monitor connected computers. _ Cryptographic Services: Set this to manual if you are not sure you need it. _ Diagnostic Policy Service: Disable this safely you don't need to be alerted of incorrect software installations on your machine. _ Distributed Link Tracking Client: Disable this service if you have only one computer on a network, or if you do not access other computers. _ Distributed Transaction Service: Set this to manual. _ Error Reporting Service: Disable this service for reporting errors to Microsoft, because they will hardly even reply to you for any error you get. This also saves a lot of bandwidth. _ Event Log: Set this to automatic. _ Fast User Switching Compatibility: Disable it if you have only a single user on your computer, or if you do not use fast user switching feature much. That is, if you com completely log off and then allow other users to use your computer, then you do not need this. Note that this service is com completely useless for low memory computers. _ Fax Service: Disable this if you do not use your PC to send / receive fax. _ FTP Publishing: Disable this if you do not use FTP. _ Help and Support: Set it to manual or turn it off if you do not use the help feature often. You can turn it on again at any time if you need help. _ HTTP SSL: Set it to manual. _ Human Interface Device Access: Turn it off if you do not use hot-keys or remote systems on your computer. Anyway if you use them sometimes, it is better turn it to manual. _ IIS: The Internet Information Services provide the capabilities of a web server for your computer. If you don't need this option (you likely don't), turn it off safely. _ IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules: If you don't need to use IKE or IPsec (most home users don't), disable this. _ IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service: Set this to manual to save memory and time. Do not turn it off if you have a CD writer or a DVD writer attached to your computer. _ Indexing Service: Turn it off, as this uses a lot of CPU. If you are an avid searcher, like a maniac, on your computer, leave it on since it will help you. If you know where your files are and do not use search that often, then disable it for your good. _ InstallDriver Table Manager: Disable it safely. _ Integrated Peripherals: Disable peripherals you do not need like network cards, integrated graphic or sound, etc. Go to "Run" and type "devgmt.msc" (without quotes) _ IP Helper: If you don't need support for IPv6, safely disable this. _ IPSEC Services: Set this to manual. _ Logical Disk Manager: If you do not plan to add extra hard drives or modify the hard drive partitions on your machine, you can disable this.
