    Note: It's best to do a few at a time, restart your computer and use it for a day. Ensure that you're satisfied before tweaking a few more services.

    The only fly in the ointment is that Windows-10 is undergoing so many updates, that some services are set back to automatic during the update. Never had this happen on Windows-7... probably because Win-7 was a "mature" O.S.. No major ongoing updates the past 2 years.
    Thankyou very much, if everything was this thouroughly, smooth running would rule the world.

    In that case, backup, backup, backup...... and you may want to turn synchronizing too if you have multiple windows 10 instances.

    The black viper site was of great use during those long ago times when XP was king.

    These days with the much better system management afforded by modern operating systems these type of tweaks are of a lot less use in real terms. By all means, if you feel a need, go through the tips on the site but don't expect to see any real improvement.

    Also don't be surprised, if you disable a service, That a totally unrelated functionality ends up with issues. Independent programmers have been known to assume that a standard service is going to be running, and utilise it's procedure calls without checking, these calls will not be documented in Microsoft's dependency lists.

    One other thing which is a general procedure with all tweaks to system components ...

    • Reboot the system before you perform the tweak, (many people have had issues after a tweak that were actually due to something that was there before any changes.
    • Only change one service at a time.
    • Reboot after the change.
    • Give the system a day or a week to show up any issues before you do another tweak.

    Ok, reset all services to default. How do you do this without a clean install?

    A reinstall solved all the other issues, so the services-issue will come up soon.
    There are TechSupport who does this kind of work, but it is expensive.

    I am blown away that QuackViper still has a site...and even more so that anyone is recommending it or following his advice.

    The best way to manage your services is to leave them alone. That's been the case for nearly a decade, and becomes more and more true as Windows and hardware platforms mature.
