SERVICES ARE SPECIAL low-level programs that run in the background, performing numerous functions. Each one uses its share of system resources and—armed with the right know-how—you can selectively disable them to free up memory and processor time. But why do it by hand when Easy Service Optimizer ( www.sordum.org/8637) can do the hard work for you?
The program provides three presets: Safe, Tweaked, and Extreme. For most people, Safe is best—it’s a “no-risk” option, and you can easily revert to Default if things stop working. Advanced users can go further, and the app enables you to manually tweak individual Services, too.
