Thank you for trying "ServiceTuner 2007" by eXPerience.
This program is for use on Windows XP (Home or Pro).
This program allows you to easily enable or disable
up to 69 services, saving your system memory and in
some cases, securing your system.
To install ServiceTuner 2007, just double click the
file "Install ServiceTuner 2007".
This installation is 100% silent, no boxes will pop
up asking you where to install to. ServiceTuner 2007
installs to your WINDOWS drive in a folder called
"ServiceTuner". It will also put a link in your Start
Menu called "ServiceTuner 2007" and two icons on your
Desktop called "Enable Services" and "Disable Services".
Just double click an icon to run the interface which
presents you with a screen full of tickboxes, detailing
69 Windows Services that can be disabled or enabled.
You will always have to restart your system for the
changes to take effect, both disabling or enabling.
When you "enable" services, it will only return the
service back to the way it would normally be, so do
not worry about enabling all services at once, this
will not actually make all the services start, but
sets most to manual so if they need to start in
future, they will do.
If you disable all services, you will only be left
with six services running! This saves a lot of
system memory (RAM).
DCOM Server Process Launcher (Needed for MSI installers)
DHCP Client (Needed to access the internet)
Event Log (This cannot be stopped)
Plug and play (Needed for USB devices)
Remote Procedure Call (This cannot be stopped)
Windows Audio (Needed for sound)
Also, this program will not alter Cryptographic Services.
If you disable this, you will be flooded with uncertified
driver notifications, but in most cases it can still be
disabled, just make sure you've installed your drivers
before disabling Cryptographic Services.
It has not been tested on Windows 2000. If you use this
on Windows 2003, there is no "Remote Desktop" in Windows
2003, so the ServicesTuner program will get stuck. There
are 2 things you can do - either don't choose the service
Remote Desktop Help Session Manager" OR when it gets stuck,
end the process in Task Manager (just look for the process
with a long name in Task Manager). This does not happen
with Windows XP, which ServiceTuner is fully compatible
