Services in Windows 7 that can be Safely set Manual

Windows 7 Services
In Windows 7 there are many system run services that we often don’t require for our work. So Disabling or not running this service unnecessarily we can save the boot time as well as speedup Windows 7. Here are a list of Windows 7 system services that can be safely set to Manual or Disabled.

IMPORTANT: It is more safe to set the following services to manual rather than disabling them. This is because when some times if windows needs a service windows can start it by itself if and only if it is set to manual. If you set it to disabled Windows 7 cannot start the service by it’s own.


  1. Application Experience
  2. Computer Browser (If your PC does not connect to any network)
  3. Desktop Window Manager Session Manager (If you don’t want the aero effects)
  4. Diagnostic Policy Service

  7. Offline Files
  8. Portable Device Enumerator Service
