[TUT] Speeding up windows VISTA part 1

Post by Lecter on Thu Apr 17, 2008 2:51 pm

Ok so this time we will speed up Vista by disabling few processes Wink So start you're engines !
These are the services you can disable !

We don't take any responsobility on how you're system can react after doing any changes that are shown in this tutorial !


  1. Click the Start Button, key in services.msc and hit Enter.
  2. To stop and disable a service, just right click on a service and select Properties.
  3. Then, in the properties box change the Startup type to Disabled and hit OK. The next time that you restart your computer the service will no longer be able to start.

Service
What does it do ?!
Apple Mobile DeviceProvides the interface to Apple mobile devices. If you donít have any apple hardware but use iTunes, then disable this service.
Diagnostic Policy ServiceThe Diagnostic Policy Service enables problem detection,
troubleshooting and resolution for Windows components. If this service
is stopped, diagnostics will no longer function. If this service is
disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.
Diagnostic System Host The Diagnostic System Host service enables problem detection,
troubleshooting and resolution for Windows components. If this service
is stopped, some diagnostics will no longer function. If this service
is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to
start.
Base Filtering EngineThe Base Filtering Engine (BFE) is a service that manages firewall and
Internet Protocol security (IPsec) policies and implements user mode
filtering. Stopping or disabling the BFE service will significantly
reduce the security of the system. It will also result in unpredictable
behavior in IPsec management and firewall applications.
Certificate PropagationPropagates certificates from smart cards.
Computer BrowserMaintains an updated list of computers on the network and supplies this
list to computers designated as browsers. If this service is stopped,
this list will not be updated or maintained. If this service is
disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.
Desktop Window Manager Session ManagerProvides Desktop Window Manager startup and maintenance services. Disabling this will kill aero glass.
Function Discovery Provider Host Host process for Function Discovery providers. Detects devices such as Windows Media Center Extenders on your local network.
Function Discovery Resource PublicationPublishes this computer and resources attached to this computer so they
can be discovered over the network. If this service is stopped,
network resources will no longer be published and they will not be
discovered by other computers on the network.
Group Policy ClientThe service is responsible for applying settings configured by
administrators for the computer and users through the Group Policy
component. If the service is stopped or disabled, the settings will not
be applied and applications and components will not be manageable
through Group Policy. Any components or applications that depend on the
Group Policy component might not be functional if the service is
stopped or disabled.
IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying ModulesThe IKEEXT service hosts the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) and
Authenticated Internet Protocol (AuthIP) keying modules. These keying
modules are used for authentication and key exchange in Internet
Protocol security (IPsec). Stopping or disabling the IKEEXT service
will disable IKE and AuthIP key exchange with peer computers. IPsec is
typically configured to use IKE or AuthIP; therefore, stopping or
disabling the IKEEXT service might result in an IPsec failure and might
compromise the security of the system. It is strongly recommended that
you have the IKEEXT service running.
IP HelperProvides automatic IPv6 connectivity over an IPv4 network. If this
service is stopped, the machine will only have IPv6 connectivity if it
is connected to a native IPv6 network.
iPod Service iPod hardware management services.
IPsec Policy Agent Internet Protocol security (IPsec) supports network-level peer
authentication, data origin authentication, data integrity, data
confidentiality (encryption), and replay protection. This service
enforces IPsec policies created through the IP Security Policies
snap-in or the command-line tool \"netsh ipsec\". If you stop this
service, you may experience network connectivity issues if your policy
requires that connections use IPsec. Also,remote management of Windows
Firewall is not available when this service is stopped.
Messenger Sharing Folders USN Journal Reader serviceService installed by Messenger to enable sharing scenarios.
Network Location Awareness Collects and stores configuration information for the network and
notifies programs when this information is modified. If this service is
stopped, configuration information might be unavailable. If this
service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will
fail to start.
NMIndexingServiceA component of the Nero CD/DVD burning software that is not needed for burning.
Offline Files The Offline Files service performs maintenance activities on the
Offline Files cache, responds to user logon and logoff events,
implements the internals of the public API, and dispatches interesting
events to those interested in Offline Files activities and changes in
cache state.
ReadyBoostProvides support for improving system performance using ReadyBoost. If you do not use ReadyBoost, disable this.
Tablet PC Input ServiceEnables Tablet PC pen and ink functionality.
TelephonyProvides Telephony API (TAPI) support for programs that control
telephony devices on the local computer and, through the LAN, on
servers that are also running the service.
Terminal ServicesAllows users to connect interactively to a remote computer. Remote
Desktop and Terminal Server depend on this service. To prevent remote
use of this computer, clear the checkboxes on the Remote tab of the
System properties control panel item.
Terminal Services ConfigurationTerminal Services Configuration service (TSCS) is responsible for all
Terminal Services and Remote Desktop related configuration and session
maintenance activities that require SYSTEM context. These include
per-session temporary folders, TS themes, and TS certificates.
Terminal Services UserMode Port Redirector Allows the redirection of Printers/Drives/Ports for RDP connections
UPnP Device HostAllows UPnP devices to be hosted on this computer. If this service is
stopped, any hosted UPnP devices will stop functioning and no
additional hosted devices can be added. If this service is disabled,
any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.
WebClient Enables Windows-based programs to create, access, and modify
Internet-based files. If this service is stopped, these functions will
not be available. If this service is disabled, any services that
explicitly depend on it will fail to start.
Windows AudioManages audio for Windows-based programs. If this service is stopped,
audio devices and effects will not function properly. If this service
is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to
start
Windows Audio Endpoint BuilderManages audio devices for the Windows Audio service. If this service
is stopped, audio devices and effects will not function properly. If
this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it
will fail to start.
Windows DefenderScan your computer for unwanted software, schedule scans, and get the latest unwanted software definitions.
Windows Error Reporting ServiceAllows errors to be reported when programs stop working or responding
and allows existing solutions to be delivered. Also allows logs to be
generated for diagnostic and repair services. If this service is
stopped, error reporting might not work correctly and results of
diagnostic services and repairs might not be displayed. This service
has always been a favorite for power users to disable. I'm not going to
lie, it will give you a slight performance gain if you disable it since
less overhead = more resources for your apps. However, Windows Vista is
in Beta! Why wouldn't you want Microsoft to hear about the problems you
are having. Don't you want them to be aware of issues you are having?
Windows FirewallWindows Firewall helps protect your computer by preventing unauthorized
users from gaining access to your computer through the Internet or a
network.
Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)Provides image acquisition services for scanners and cameras.
Windows Management InstrumentationProvides a common interface and object model to access management
information about operating system, devices, applications and services.
If this service is stopped, most Windows-based software will not
function properly. If this service is disabled, any services that
explicitly depend on it will fail to start. This service is used a lot
in the enterprise environment in scripting events on computers. In the
home area, there is no use for it and can be disabled. If in the future
you ever have any problems with installing programs, try re-enabling
this service again since some, not all, tend to use it.
Windows SearchProvides content indexing and property caching for file, email and
other content (via extensibility APIs). The service responds to file
and email notifications to index modified content. If the service is
stopped or disabled, the Explorer will not be able to display virtual
folder views of items, and search in the Explorer will fall back to
item-by-item slow search.
Windows TimeMaintains date and time synchronization on all clients and servers in
the network. If this service is stopped, date and time synchronization
will be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that
explicitly depend on it will fail to start.
Windows UpdateEnables the detection, download, and installation of updates for
Windows and other programs. If this service is disabled, users of this
computer will not be able to use Windows Update or its automatic
updating feature, and programs will not be able to use the Windows
Update Agent (WUA) API. While many disable this service, I think you
are crazy if you do these days.
