    Which NVidia Tasks and Services are Safe to Disable


    I just installed a new NVidia GTX 1050 Ti GPu since the previous AMD GPU died. Which of the tasks and services below can I safely disable? I'm content to configure games manually and check manually for driver updates.

    You can disable or remove every one of the above but, if you want the nvidia control panel to work then don't disable Nvidia Display Container Local system. Unfortunately when you update the driver you will have to remove them all again. ET likes to phone home.
