Services in Windows 7 that can be Safely set to Disabled or Manual and speed up Windows 7

Windows 7 Services
In Windows 7 there are many system run services that we often don't require for our work. So Disabling or not running this service unnecessarily we can save the boot time as well as the speedup Windows 7. Here are a list of Windows 7 system services that can be safely set to Manual or Disabled.


IMPORTANT: It is more safe to set the following services to manual rather than disabling them. This is because when some times if windows needs a service windows can start it by itself if and only if it is set to manual. If you set it to disabled Windows 7 cannot start the service by it's own.



  1. Application Experience
  2. Computer Browser (If your PC does not connect to any network)
  3. Desktop Window Manager Session Manager (If you don't want the aero effects)
  4. Diagnostic Policy Service
  5. Distributed Link Tracking Client
  6. IP Helper
  7. Offline Files
  8. Portable Device Enumerator Service
  9. Print Spooler (If you do not use Printer)
  10. Protected Storage
  11. Remote Registry (You can safely disable it for more Security)
  12. Secondary Logon
  13. Security Center
  14. Server (If your computer do not connect with any network)
  15. Tablet PC Input Service
  16. TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper
  17. Themes ( If you want any aero and good visual appearence (classic theme will be applied))
  18. Windows Error Reporting Service
  19. Windows Media Center Service Launcher
  20. Windows Search (If you rarely use Windows Search feature )
  21. Windows Time (If you do not want to synchronize system time with internet time automatically)

Yeah its very easy. Just Take control panel > go to > Administrative tools and then take services . Then right click the needed service and take properties from the right click menu and then you can set the start up type to manual, Disabled or Enabled.

Start\Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools\
(In the 'Administrative Tools' window, double-click 'Services' another window will pop-up... Wah-Lah!!)

Turn off Superfetch. It uses up a lot of RAM and resources too.
