Using MSCONFIG to Improve Gaming Performance in Windows 7

I published my first YouTube video on How to Use MSCONFIG to Easily Speed Up Windows 7 and Make It Faster in February of 2012. Earlier today I created even a better How-to Video!

Many of my YouTube Fans and Subscribers wanted further help with using MSCONFIG to shutdown processes and services that they don't need for gaming. It took some time, but I finally came up with a list of Windows 7 processes and services that can be safely disabled permanently or temporarily and doing so will boost the gaming performance of your PC!

In this blog posting I will post the names of all the processes and services that you have to disable using MSCONFIG in Windows 7 or even Windows Vista. I suggest that you print this page and also watch my latest How-to video in 1080p on YouTube that I recorded earlier today. You can also watch my previous How-to video to get bonus performance tips!

Every computer has a different set of programs and games installed on it. Many programs and games isntall additional services and processes that run on startup which can slow down your system and affect its performance. These services and processes are usually not needed to run all the time, that is why you can disable them, reboot, and recover your performance. 

Sometimes you can disable the wrong service or process and your computer can have problems functiing properly or runing applications. It's always a good idea to have a great backup of your PC before you begin any task like this. The processes and services that I identified here in this blog posting and my videos can be safely disabled for the advantage of gaining a performance boost. You can always re-enable these services by using MSCONFIG again and enabling each service you disabled (see list above) and simply rebooting.
