How does a person suppose to know which services need to be running or disabled in order to have a laptop to boot faster?


And before someone mentions it, I know all about an SSD.

As you can see from the page, Windows 10 being a service changes services between upgrades. Any major upgrade would take you back to square one.

Hi, yes Black viper is a reasonable safe guide to services, however it only references windows services that typically show under services.msc. In effect there are over 600 services installed under windows ten, many are system and run without your knoweledge.


What is missing from Black viper, are those services that the programs you install add to the mix, (ie non microsoft services) it's here that most problems occur. You can use Msconfig "services" tab and hide ms services to see what third party services you have running.


A word of caution we extensively study MS services and I can tell you the only reason we would deviate from the default settings would be for security reasons, we can show no performance improvements meddling here. Third party services are a different option altogether. 


WE can see what services you have running, go to search and type:- command prompt, right click on the returned command prompt and select "run as administrator" please copy and paste all the below cmd into the cmd prompt window. Press enter:-


echo > 0 & systeminfo | find /V /I "hotfix" | find /V "KB" >> 0 & WMIC /Node:localhost /Namespace:\\root\SecurityCenter2 Path AntiVirusProduct Get displayName /format:list >> 0 & wmic PATH Win32_VideoController GET Description,PNPDeviceID /format:list >> 0 & tasklist /v >> 0 & net start >> 0 & echo >> 0 & notepad 0


Notepad will open with a lot of data please attach the file to your reply (use the "More reply Options")
