I have Win7 Pro and do a lot of gaming on this machine in fact its about all I do aside from some graphics stuff for the game I play. In the past I went through and disabled and set a lot of services to manual and disabled some that I never use. Unfortunately I have since moved and cannot find my list.

I am wanting to upgrade my Motherboard and CPU but want to be sure all the recommended/important Win7 updates are installed before I do that. So I want to be sure all the services are where they should be by default.


I had a few issues in the past and used Tweaking.coms repair tool from Major geeks and this site has it too I think. Would this be the tool to use or does anyone recommend something else?

Yes you can use the Tweaking.com - Windows Repair tool for that with only the following to options selected on the list of Repairs:

- 26 - Restore Important Windows Services
- 27 - Set Windows Services To Default Startup


Before doing the Updates I suggest you use the program Never10 by Gibson Research to block the installation of Windows 10 if you don't want to Upgrade the OS.

Thanks for the reply..I downloaded that Never10 so at least I have that. I have Win10 on my laptop and love it but just not ready to risk my huge GB of game files to it yet on my gaming machine..my hope is in upgrading MB and CPU I wont need to go through and tweak things for faster speed so I wanted to be sure everything was back to default before the change of components. Thanks again for the reply..much appreciated!
