Black Vipers Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Service Configurations


Add comments

Introduction
To continue my fine tradition of optimizing MSs latest OS, I have here my findings to date. If you are looking for Windows 7 Retail information, you are almost in the right spot. Before adjusting your service settings, ensure that your system has already installed all updates by checking now for any available updates via Windows Update. At this time, it is best for you to ensure that all services are set to the default values before updating your system. Breakdown of all changes to date: Windows 7 Information Changelog. I cannot possibly test all configurations extensively (meaning, each persons specific computer needs), but what I can offer is what works for me and the obstacles I have came across so you do not have to discover them on your own. If information on this page needs a revision or expanded, please feel free to comment below. An * (asterisk) indicates changes from the default Two ** (asterisks) indicates you can add or remove this service by:

Head to Start Select Control Panel Select Programs Select Programs and Features Select Turn Windows Features on or off

Three *** (asterisks) indicates optional services installed with Windows Live Essentials. Four **** (asterisks) indicates changes from Retail (SP0) to Service Pack 1.

Notes for a Happier Computer and User


z z z z

Do not use msconfig to disable services, type services.msc in the Run box instead or check this FAQ! Before disabling any service, check out the service information about each by selecting the service name links provided. Service settings are global, meaning changes apply to all users. All of these services are Standard with Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and installed by default, by Add/Remove Windows Features, or installed via Windows Live Essentials. If you discover a service that is not listed here, another application, driver or program installed them. A few of the more common ones are listed here. WLAN Autoconfig service is required for normal operation of your wireless network card. It is listed here as Manual due to most desktops not needing wireless access, but if you do have a wireless network card installed, it will be in Automatic by default. Still unsure? Put your setting to Manual or the listing under Safe. Manual allows Windows 7 Service Pack 1 to start the service when it needs to (or when ever it feels like it), but not at boot up. Depending on your configuration, not all services will start when required while in Manual mode. If you find you need a service, place it in Automatic. After adjusting your service settings, reboot your computer. Before posting your question in the comments below, see if your question has been addressed in the FAQ!

The columns are sortable. Select the column header to sort by that field. DEFAULT ~ What MS thinks should be running on Windows 7 Service Pack 1. Safe Configuration ~ This is the configuration that 95% of the people will be able to use with little or no side effects. It will also minimizes the amount of errors that is reported in the Event Viewer. This does not guarantee it will work for you, but if adjusting your services scares you, this configuration would be a good starting point.

using PayPal. Whatever you can afford is acceptable. Free content costs me money and lots of time with the up and coming W8 release and for the second half of 2012, I request your support. Thank you in advance, kind reader.

19 service settings have been changed from the default annotated by an (*) asterisk.

Tweaked ~ This is the configuration that I have developed to reduce the Safe services started, but maintain system security. This does not guarantee it will work for you.
{ {

57 service settings have been changed from the default annotated by an (*) asterisk. This configuration is a system that is still able to perform many LAN networking functions, such as file and print sharing, HomeGroup access and uses wireless networking (laptop) plus leaves several security related features like the Windows Defender, Windows Firewall and Windows Update active. This configuration is not for a Windows Media Center PC. In this case, use Safe.

Bare-bones ~ WARNING!! ~ This configuration disables many built in features of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 as well as several security features.
{ {

85 service settings have been changed from the default annotated by an (*) asterisk. This configuration is not for a system that is directly connected to the internet as Windows Defender, Windows Firewall and Windows Update are disabled! This configuration is not for a laptop system as wireless networking (as well as Defender and Firewall) are disabled and will not be able to counter attacks while roaming on some random wireless connection outside of the home. This configuration is not for a system that internal network attacks are an issue. For example: Multiple PCs with multiple family members and inexperienced users. For this situation, I highly recommend Safe to ensure network security and Windows Update compatibility. This is not for a system that provides networked resources, such as printers, Media Center, and WMP library to other LAN connected computers. Use this configuration at your own risk. It is only provided here as a reference for me to adjust my system setting. If you tweak your Windows 7 OS, use Safe unless you read and understand what you are doing.

Configuration Information
z

Automatic ~ With a service in this state, it will start at boot time. Some services, when no longer required, will also automatically stop when not needed. If you find you do not need a service, place it into Manual or Disabled. Automatic (Delayed Start) ~ With a service in this state, it will start just after boot time. Some services, when no longer required, will also automatically stop when not needed. If you find you do not need a service, place it into Manual or Disabled. Manual ~ Manual mode allows Windows to start a service when needed. However, very few services will start up when required in Manual mode. If you find you need a service, place it into Automatic. Disabled ~ This setting will stop a service from starting, even if needed. Errors in the Event Viewer will show up complaining of that fact. Some services, while Disabled, will constantly complain. However, this situation is taken care of if placed in Manual. The service descriptions identifies those that should be in Manual vice Disabled. Started ~ A service that either set to Manual or Automatic that is running by default at or shortly after boot time. Not Started ~ A service set into Automatic that is not running by default at or shortly after boot time. Not Available ~ A service that does not apply to the particular version. Uninstalled ~ The ability to uninstall a service that I recommend to be removed by using Add/Remove Windows Features.

1. June 22, 2012 at 9:11 AM You are a doll. I have a son that is a software engineer but doesnt want to be bothered by me as I am not in his techie world. I would have asked him what services should be enabled but he is way too busy with his fine life to be bothered. You are a sweetie to spend your time giving this information for free so Grandmothers like me can get their systems straight. Thanks a whole bunch. {{{{hugs}}}} Log in to Reply

July 18, 2012 at 5:04 AM Glad to see that you have supplied a tweak for Win7. Back in my XP days I used your tweaks and they worked well. If I remember, when I first went to Win7, I checked a few times for your Win7 tweaks but didnt see them. I assumed that you gave up the tweaking. I did notice something in my services and hopefully someone can give an answer. I have multiple instences of Microsoft.NET and dont know why. Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\mscorsvw.exe (display name Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN v2.0.50727_X64) Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\mscorsvw.exe (display name Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN v2.0.50727_X86) Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\mscorsvw.exe (display name Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN v4.0.30319_X64) Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\mscorsvw.exe (Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN v4.0.30319_X86) In your tweaks there wasnt any notation about multiple instances of Microsoft.net and therefore I didnt know what to do. Thanks for your work. Log in to Reply

July 18, 2012 at 6:31 PM .NET is installed at the request of or with many applications. Unfortunately, none of them are backward compatible and often the application needs whatever it was build upon. Log in to Reply

5. August 10, 2012 at 10:40 AM Thank you for your EXCELLENT site its very valuable to terrified config newbies like me. I did want to make two suggestions: 1) Earlier on this page, you have coded: Do not use msconfig to disable services, type services.msc in the Run box instead or check this FAQ! I didnt find that link very useful. I did find a different page where you described that everyone should use service.msc to change services, so that you dont accidentally make your system unbootable. Unfortunately, I cant find that URL just now but it was a very helpful page, and IMHO I think it would be a better choice to link in your check this FAQ above. 2) (Sorry, this relates to your anti-spam rant, not this page). I find using mailinator.com to be the best anti-spam defense. Whenever I meet sites that demand an e-mail address before allowing you to register, I only give them mailinator addresses, no matter how reputable the site anyone can get hacked. I use the e-mail address once, and never go back. (I am not expecting any response to this comment, nor do I expect you to post it you just seemed like the kind of person who might appreciate these observations.) Thank you again for your site!

August 10, 2012 at 10:48 AM You are probably looking for this FAQ here: http://www.blackviper.com/2002/09/24/why-cant-i-use-msconfig-to-change-my-services-in-windows-xp/ I had the link on all service pages, but people were saying it did not apply to, say, Windows 7 as the FAQ was drafted for XP. I can make a new general one instead. Thanks for the feedback. Log in to Reply

6. August 12, 2012 at 5:53 AM This is one of my FAVORITE sites. Ive been using BVs tweaks since Win ME and theyve ALWAYS made my PC startup and run significantly faster (which is why I donate)!! Thanks for taking the time to post this invaluable information!! I implore everyone who found this information helpful to donate (whatever you can) to Black Viper so he can continue this awesome FREE service. Log in to Reply
