When doing a scan with (Hijack This) on a new laptop i noticed at least twenty services at the bottom of the list that i know can only be stopped by going to admin then services, Now i am not silly enough to disable any of the o/s services but i want to either put on manual or disable some of the extras such as Google updates and thing's i know that i do not need to start automaticly, Could any one tell me if i will allways be able to go back in and enable or put back to auto the things that i disable etc, The laptop belongs to my graddaughter, If it were mine i would have no doubt and take the risks just for learning sake, This may sound silly but it is better to be safe, I have done many reinstalls on old pc's but do not want to do one on a new one, Thanks.

If you use Services from Administrative Tools or by typing Services.msc into the search box then you can change any the services from Automatic to Manual or Disabled if you so wish and undo it the same way.

Don't use Hijackthis to disable services - it removes them and its not the proper way to do it.
