    Is there an easy way to define a few profiles with services deactivated, and then to switch profile before restarting?For example

    Profile normal: as is

    Profile online gaming (deactivate all update services such as Office, Google, windows update, file indexing,

    Profile offline gaming ( = online gaming - networking -defender - ...)

    Profile music production (network deactivated, wifi deactivated, bluetooth deactivated, and on and on. Only the minimal)

    Hello Sil, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    I suppose that you could create some .bat files for this purpose with each one using commands to start/enable OR stop/disable the services you want.

    This tutorial has been updated to add Option 6 and 7 to check status, start, stop, restart, disable, and enable Services in PowerShell. :)

    Hello, uh, I'm here because of the "XtuService" thing I can't seem to delete, even with the command prompt as admin.
    So, I went to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE", then in Services I found XTU3SERVICE. I think it's what I'm looking for, but what do I do now ? I'm not really a "pro" with this type of stuff ^^'

    Hello Pixelia, :)

    If you have already uninstalled Intel Extreme Tuning Utility and the service is not currently running, then you should be able to right click on the XTU3SERVICE key, click on Delete, and Yes to approve to remove it.
