    Don't disable services unless one is specifically causing a problem.

    I agree. Any services that are currently set on Disabled, change them to Manual.

    All of the services should be set on Manual or Automatic or Automatic(Delayed Start), unless like TerryNet said, one or more of them is causing a problem.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    Background Intelligence Transfer Service

    Windows Update


    should be set on Automatic(Delayed Start)

    This is to tweak system to extreme performance. So Obviously I need to turn off / disable everything I don't use. But there should be some sort of profile thing so I could save my settings. Then when updating windows I would just restore them to defaults. After update again loading my tweaked profile.

    YOU may not be using these services but your computer just may need them. Let your system run the services it wants, unless, like it was stated before, you have real problems with that service, then find out what is causing that problem.
