    Ok thanks. If my games begin to stutter I'd search the internet and mess with windows anyways looking for a solution, so yeah, please do.

    Any smart ideas here on things to shut off/disable etc in Win10 to get more juice out and to stop some unnecessary stuff from running?

    If you have a PC not bad, it's useless and not recommended.

    Doing it is time-consuming, but accessible to anyone who is not bad at computing.

    Better to have a PC stock than trafficked.

    This is just a tip, I spent the last 15 years optimizing everything, and I realized it was a mistake.

    I just meant there are always a few things you can turn off that are good to turn off. I know in win 10 there are for example a whole bunch of modern things you can turn off that links apps and smart phone nonsense. Dont need bloat or nonsense. :) When i installed windows 10 the other day and it asked about all these nonsense things i just smashed NO, NO, NO, NO, FUCK OFF, GO TO HELL, NO, HELL NO!

    :D

    @Alex72 Sure, but those are upfront options. I think @DrivingFast was referring to guides like blackviper (?) with all sorts of services you can disable, which might help in some instances but these days make little difference. Worth trying if you have issues, if you don't it's generally not worth the effort. In the old days when guides like that were first being put together even disabling a screensaver could give you a boost.

    Basically go to settings page and just go through each option applying you're well thought out and structured formula....
    I think you forgot one important bit of code..."Tell 'em they're dreaming!"
    :cool:

    It was the upfront ones i meant. So this went further than it had to, lol. Win 10 still have upfront settings i can have missed. I just asked to get some help with that as im not super win 10 savvy yet.

    The easiest way to temporary kill some of Windows completely unnessesary services and processes is to make a simple batch file and then just before you start your game (like rF2) click on the batch file.
    Its easy to check how many processes is stopped via TaskManager.
    On my system about 60 processes are running before the batch is activated and after its only exactly 30.
    Decide yourself if you think its worth the effort - Im personally allways doing it.
    I got the idea and some of process names from Blackviper - hehe and from plainly checking Windows long services list.
    Here is an example of some of the NET STOP commands from my batch file.

    ByTheWay: Its impossible to damage your system because after a restart everything is as before:)

    NET STOP cisvc
    NET STOP FontCache3.0.0.0
    NET STOP ProtectedStorage
    NET STOP PSI_SVC_2_x64
    NET STOP tmInstall
    NET STOP wSearch
    NET STOP PcaSvc
    NET STOP iphlpsvc
    NET STOP FontCache
    NET STOP disconnect-openvpn
    NET STOP AeLookupSvc
    net stop WinDefend
    NET STOP WdiSystemHost
    NET STOP WdiServiceHost
    NET STOP SysMain
