There may be many guides to optimizing Windows 10/8/7 services, but the one I recommend is Black Viper’s Windows Service Configurations Guide.

To change service settings, enter services.msc in the start search and press Enter. This opens Services. Double-clicking on a specific service opens the Properties field. This gives information about this service, its dependencies and the ability to start/stop it or change its status from Automatic to Manual or Off.

Before adjusting your service settings, make sure your system has already installed all updates by checking for updates available via Windows Update. At this point, make sure that all services are set to their default values before you update your system. It is also preferable to create a point restoration system

Tweaking Services is reserved for geeks and tweak lovers. Others may want to get away from it.

So when you’re ready, go to Black Vipers to read the guide !
