  • 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 Vista SP2. If you discover something other than these listed here running, another program installed them.

Important(!!) Additional Notes

Feel free to use this tool and send me feedback with success and failure stories.

  • No checks are performed to ensure that all dependencies are accounted for. Ensure that you validate your service configuration before creating your custom file. Checks for dependencies may be included at a later date.
  • Download the default registry settings before attempting to install your own registry file. For downloading default and other configuration files, please visit the Windows Vista SP2 Services Registry Patch Guide.

  • You may validate your configuration by bringing up the services.msc control panel and this tool side by side and transferring the entries.
  • All services marked as "Not Installed" are not listed here.
  • Several services do not have the option of changing from the default.

  • Upon submitting, a new page with further instructions will appear.

To-do List

  • Do back up your current registry settings before editing or replacing any information. This is accomplished by following this Microsoft Knowledge base article:;en-us;322756
  • Do back up any files that you cannot be without.
  • Do understand that editing the registry, no matter what method or extent, has risks.
  • Do use this information at your own risk.
  • Do contact me with comments, suggestions and success stories.

Configuration Information

  • 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. However, this is very rare. 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.
