Re: windows services that i can disable.

David Goldfield

I completely agree with Timothy, which is why I wasn't initially going to comment on this thread. However, now that I am I would also add that disabling or stopping services, in most cases, won't really give you any kind of performance increase that you will notice. So, if a user terminates or disables specific services hoping to see a performance increase it very likely won't happen.

With so many different web sites that talk about this, what services can I safely disable?

No one worth their salt would give you general advice for this, as disabling services is completely based on use cases and user habits. There is no "one size fits all", and unless you know exactly what you're doing, e.g., you take full responsibility to figure out how to fix things when unintended consequences occur, leave well enough alone. Disabling services is something you would have to do your own research and determinations on, and if you don't feel comfortable doing even that, then it's safe to say that this is not a recommended action you should take. And definitely don't blindly (excuse the pun) follow a tutorial without knowing exactly what it is doing to your system.
