Disable Unnecessary Windows Services

Disabling Windows services can considerably increase boot times and available random access memory. If you plan on using network drives or sharing files across a virtual network you should stick to the “Safe” configuration. Otherwise, give the other two a shot. Obviously – you’ll loose some features, so make sure you haven’t disabled something¬†you need.

I’ve authored three scripts using the “Safe, Tweaked, and Bare Bones” guidelines posted on Charles “Black Viper” Sparks’ blog here.

Safe:

Bare Bones: Here.

Tweaked: Here.
