I was wondering which vista services are really needed (for a 512Mb vista PC).
I thought: wouldn’t it be nice if the Black Viper website was back.
I did a google search for vista services, when I noticed that the Blackviper.com website seemed to be back in the google SERPs!
Well I went there and found that Black Viper (Charles Sparks) was back, and he has a list of Vista services. Welcome back BV!
Although his info on XP is probably not so relevant in this age of Gigabytes of RAM, I still find myself using his info to tune 256MB XP systems, so that they run a little faster.
So now, I might be able to tune Vista to run acceptably with 512Mb (I hope)
For those who don’t know about BV, he has a very comprehensive list of standard windows services, and what they do, and he also gives you an indication on if you will notice if they are disabled.
After having looked at BVs vista settings for a while, it looks like he hasn’t done much research into each service yet… it looks like his vista services need a bit more work. I’m sure Charles will do his usual magic over the coming months!
