Indeed disabling services will give you some performances gains, however you have to be sure what you are disabling.

 

Read (carefully) this, it may help you : http://www.blackviper.com/service-configurations/black-vipers-windows-10-service-configurations/

 

in case you are not on Win10, you can find lists for the appropriate OS.

Hi, we can see what services & processes you have running, go to search and type:- command prompt, right click on the returned command prompt and select "run as administrator" an elevated cmd prompt will open, copy the text below and paste it into the cmd prompt window:-

 

echo> 0 & net start >> 0 & tasklist /v >> 0 & echo >> 0 & notepad 0

 

Press enter, please copy paste the notepad output here.

Morning to all of you Please don't think i have forgotten you . i am still going through everything on freebooters list i printed it off i and i am ticking it off as i go through it.

so it is taking me a little time.  ALSO i tried the task that jenae set me ,but i am struggling with it.not sure if the o before tasklist and others,is a number or letter ,so tried them both .

but i keep getting,echo//notepad//.is not recognized as a command.  so i will leave that till last,.  

Please bear with me  i will do my best.

Hi, all you have to do is highlight the text, then right click on the highlighted text and select copy, then with the cmd prompt open right click anywhere in the cmd prompt window and select paste.. press enter... it couldn't be simpler!!

HI Jenae thanks for the reply ,  i love how you say couldn't' be simpler the first part click on the text (what text).  what do you mean with command prompt open,

i know you mean well but you are assuming i know what your talking about, i don't.i am trying hard and i would love to get it right.but i am still trying to get the first part.

"echo> 0 & net start >> 0 & tasklist /v >> 0 & echo >> 0 & notepad 0​"

The red items are zeros. In this case, you can tell they are zeros by comparing the words that have o's.

On the instructions to use the command prompt

In the lower left corner, type command prompt in the box that reads Type here to search

A list will show up with Command prompt at the top

You will see Run as administrator

Click that, answer yes to allow the next screen to show up

A black box will show up

Copy & paste echo> 0 & net start >> 0 & tasklist /v >> 0 & echo >> 0 & notepad 0 in there

The services list will then show up

But in your case I hope other instructions will be more helpful at this time
