    Hi there!

    I am very new and this is the first thread I have created here in this forum,

    I am a quite old user of win 7 x64. Now need some customization.

    Situation: I have an official desktop computer in my office for general office purpose. Many people use this computer.

    Role of the PC: One and only use of it is to replace a typewriter having a memory! 99% use is of MS Office 2010. It also is connected to intranet (not internet).

    Challenge: Getting slow quickly!

    Present requirement: To speed up, I also want to disable/ delete the windows services which are not required for using this PC for using word, printing documents with a printer and using the intranet (not internet) - only mailing.

    Help Required: I need to have a list of win 7 services only which are required for using ms word, printing and mailing. Or, the opposite; the list of win 7 services which are not required for using ms word, printing and mailing.

    * Any additional advice will be highly appreciated too.

    Can anyone help me in this case?

    If I have created this thread in wrong forum, pl advice me the correct one too.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sanzib.

    You can take a look at BlackViper's W7 SP1 Services List. The one's with ** (two asterisks) you can consider removing but you will have to research their purpose to see if you need them for your requirements

    Well his list shows ** for services you can safely disable but I don't know if any of those services would be desired to still do what you wish to allow, for example he says the "indexing service **" can be safely disabled, but if you disable that then searches will be slower.

    So how often does someone need to search for a file on that computer? If all the important documents are in a single folder then fine, turn it off, but if not then is the savings in background processing worth a slower search. This is just an example; I did always disable that service on my old slower computer because I did know which folders had all my important files ... the My Documents library.
