See Black Viper's site. Only use the "Safe" settings. It would also be best if you did only a few at a time to see how the computer acts. Also create a restore point before your changes.

I suggest you leave the services alone. If you have a Win 7 system, disabling some services will not make a noticeable difference. Why don't you describe the problem(s) you're having and let's see if we can assist.

I wouldn't recommend disabling services.. services generally do not slow performance in many cases unless they have an underlying problem with them, which would be very noticeable.
What's your CPU usage and physical memory usually at? A lot of the time slow PC performance is the cause of high CPU usage, programs running in the background or constantly writing information, and a few other factors, including a dusty computer!
NOTE: Disabling certain services you are not aware the origin or purpose of could make your PC have some serious issues or become unbootable, I do not recommend!!! :(

I ran Black Vipers settings in earlier days on XP Machines , which really only assisted in better boot times and slightly better memory usage.

 

With Windows 7 and later i have not tried disabling or reverting them to manual settings as i think it is not required with most people having faster Cpus , and Memory above 4 Gigs.

 

If you still are not sure have a good readup on Black Vipers site , also if you run into any trouble he does have Default Service Settings within a Bat file you can run in case you mess them up.

 

Better to Write down any changes you do make so you can revert back if needed.

+1  I agree with Allan, you should leave the services alone.  These do not us enough system resources to become problematic.  

 

If you are experiencing problems please provide us with a full description of these.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
