    I don't know how Black Viper's suggestions work on 10. His XP ones worked great.

    I would strongly urge inexperienced users to stay far far away from disabling system services. There is no complete documentation available anywhere and many services do more than what official documentation states. Black Viper is often guessing and he has been known to guess wrong.

    Incidentally and contrary to many claims, setting a service to manual is NOT a safe alternative to disabling it. In this mode a service can be started if it is needed but you can't assume this will actually happen. It often won't. When a non-running service causes a Windows component or application to fail there is usually no attempt made to determine why. And don't expect a meaningful error message.
    Agreed, services have inter-dependencies - do not mess with them. Block traffic with Hosts file and Firewall rather.

    Windows 10 is far more sophisticated ... altho' I agree Black Viper was good with XP.

    I agree - I used to follow Black Viper's recommendations for Windows XP but have left services well alone since Windows 8.

    Black Vipre was good in win 7 sp1 also IMO.

    I Have the obvious things off in Windows 10 without critical dependencies, fortunately (and wisely ) they dumped a lot of legacy resident windows code and things and the plausible UWP apps don't use a lot of background process resources or even running resources .

    Sent from 14905 my 14915 update is lost somewhere and hasn't come in to my $WINDIWS.~BT folder or WU

    the best thing to secure your computer is the guy/girl between the chair and the keyboard. im a "clean" user of win 10 TP since the launch pretty much with only microsofts own stuff and 0 problems within the virus/malware -sector

    I have always warned, and will continue warning users to avoid using tools and sites like the one mentioned in first post. My recommendation is to stay away from that site.

    No company or person in charge information, no information about where the money goes (yes, you have to pay 10 dollars without really knowing what you are buying), badly coded site and so on.

    In my opinion you are making a big mistake if you buy this rubbish.

    That's a good question. I would bet nothing, but one never knows.
