    I am working on a .reg file to disable all the unwanted services. I need some help though. I do not know the keys to use for the following services and would like some help adding them to my .reg located below.


    • Security Accounts
    • System Event Notification
    • Windows Firewall
    • Windows Eventlog




    And can you look over my current list and see if there is anything that 100% must not be turned off? Is there anything else you would add?

    Back in the day, when memory was at a premium, and computers were less powerful, turning off services would make a difference. I do not see the point in doing that these days.

    Please use the Set-Service PowerShell cmdlet (or the sc command) to achieve this rather than fiddling with the registry.

    (Edit: Not that you should be bothering anyway.)
