Disable System Services?

    In that case you should disable all or some of services that start with "Remote".

    Hi there. Wouldn't it be better to uninstall unneeded items in Device Manager first, then tweak Services?

    BTW, if a service is not needed, it won't run even if it's listed. Yes?

    Only "Manual" and "Manual (Trigger Start)", "Automatic" and "Automatic (Delayed Start)" start at Boot time and run all the time.
    "Manual" can be triggered by a program and "Trigger Start" is reserved or Windows use. So anything except Disabled can be started some way.
    Disabled ones you can not start until its set to manual or auto.

    I've been fighting services since they invented them. At first they were great security risk.

    Not real sure just what all of them do. So I left them as is. Only one I did disable was Remote Registry.
