*registry file example*** Backup up registry before using!

 

this is for performance enthusiasts who like to experiment with disabling services, usually done manually but can be done easily given the example below. Everyone has their own services needs. The below is an example but can be used once reviewed.

refer to black viper vista services

i suggest creating another file with changed services reset to default in case its needed. This example fits my own single braudband computer usage.

 

review the services below and refer to site listed above, remove any lines that you want to keep defaulted. the lines listed are the services thats being changed either to manual or disable.

 

*note: if you recieve a "cannot import" type message, this is caused by a particular service vist not allowing to change, however it will change all the others, i havnt experimented to find the particular service that vista isnt allowing, there may be a few you wish to add as well, just follow the example and create your own line.

 

to sum up my example file, i kept firewall,cable braudband,backup and support,themes,audio,sounds,update,mobile devices,readyboost

you may wish to remove or add lines. after you click file and reboot, you may want to double check.

in start searchbox type: services.msc, click on startup type to organize and review

 

copy the below, paste into notepad.

click file, save as

under save as type, make sure you type **.reg (the "**" can be any name)

you should now see it as a registry file, to edit simply right click on it and select edit.

Patiently awaits the inevitable posts crying about why this and that doesn't work.

 

Better to post a links to Blackvipers services guide,

 

http://www.blackviper.com/WinVista/servicecfg.htm

 

or this one,

 

http://www.tweakhound.com/vista/tweakguide/page_7.htm

 

and let people make their own decisions as to what they do and don't need (and for most out there leaving well enough alone is the best recommendation), than to post up a regedit script.
