    Information A service is an application type that runs in the system background without a user interface and is similar to a UNIX daemon process. Services provide core operating system features, such as Web serving, event logging, file serving, printing, cryptography, and error reporting.

    This tutorial will show you how to start, stop, restart, enable, and disable services in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to do the steps in this tutorial.

    Note
    • If you stop, start, or restart a service, any dependent services are also affected. Starting a service does not automatically restart its dependent services.
    • Changing the default service settings may prevent key services from running correctly. It is especially important to use caution when changing the Startup type setting of services that are configured to start automatically.
    • Some services, such as Remote Procedure Call (RPC), Event Log, and Plug and Play, cannot be stopped by using the Services snap-in window or the net stop command. These services are required for the operating system to function properly.

    Warning It is highly recommended that you System Restore using the restore point to undo the changes.

    If you disabled the wrong service and lost access to the computer, then try booting into Safe Mode to change the service back.

    Note "Startup Type" for Service
    • Automatic - With a service in this state, it will start at boot time. Some services, when no longer required, will also automatically stop when not needed. If you find you do not need a service, place it into Manual or Disabled.
    • Automatic (Delayed Start) - With a service in this state, it will start just after boot time. Some services, when no longer required, will also automatically stop when not needed. If you find you do not need a service, place it into Manual or Disabled.
    • Automatic (Delayed Start, Trigger Start) - With a service in this state, it will start just after boot when specifically called.
    • Manual (Trigger Start) - This is a version of Manual mode that allows Windows to start a service when specifically called and Microsoft’s answer to “too many services running all the time”.
    • Manual - Manual mode allows Windows to start a service when needed. However, very few services will start up when required in Manual mode. If you find you need a service, place it into Automatic.
    • Disabled - This setting will stop a service from starting, even if needed. Errors in the Event Viewer will show up complaining of that fact. Some services, while Disabled, will constantly complain. However, this situation is taken care of if placed in Manual. The service descriptions identifies those that should be in Manual vice Disabled.

    Start, Stop, and Disable Services in Windows 10

    Hi Shawn,
    I thank you for the tutorial on services in Windows 10
    I have a question for you
    I have developed a service,
    but I want my service to start first, my application works as follows:
    my service locks the Windows session and only when I connect my USB memory then starts the user session windows
    I tried to start my service to start adding the shortcut in the "Startup" folder but I can not get my service run first, many services starting before my service, such as antivirus starts first, also start the driver first printer, etc ..
    thanks for the help

    I thought this might help others that were in the same boat as I was yesterday:

    Background:

    I uninstalled Intel XTU(Extreme Tuning Utility yesterday, as I do all my overclocking from UEFI/BIOS like @essenbe & @Dude told me to do, and seeing my MSI motherboard comes with Command Center which also communicates with the BIOS and does basically the same thing in changing OC settings, I didn't need XTU. I found having both programs were causing some issues with QueryPerformance to GetTickCount ratio(can cause micro stuttering as it has to do with the different timers Windows & BIOS use; i.e. HPET).


    What I did:
    So I uninstalled it, rebooted, and found a lot of leftovers, including a file that I could not delete called IOCBIOS2.sys, as it kept saying it was open/running somewhere else. I searched my system, and looked at all kinds of folder and file properties, but couldn't find anything.

    Then I thought to check Services, and BINGO found it( a service that was still running called IOCBIOS2)!

    I tried disabling the service, then deleting the file, but that didn't work.

    I then tried booting into safe mode so only Windows basic services were running, and was able to delete the file.
    Now the Service showed up, but now was saying it couldn't be found.

    How to get rid of a third party service:
    I then opened Regedit and went to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services found the service and deleted the key.

    To get rid of a third party service

    • Disable the 3rd party service
    • Go to safe mode
    • Delete the .sys folder
    • Boot back into Windows
    • Open Services and make sure it's still there, but not running anymore
    • Open Regedit
    • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services
    • Find the service key
    • Delete it
    • Close Regedit
    • Reboot Windows and see if the service is gone for good.

    Hello John, *Smile

    I would recommend to leave them alone. Disabling the wrong service could cripple Windows.

    Windows 10 does a great job of managing its services, so it's not something you would really need to change or optimize unless for some specific purpose.

    I use a little tool called "Disable Unnecessary Services V1.1"

    https://forum.raymond.cc/threads/dis...es-v1-1.40809/

    Below is an example how I've configured the DisableUNS.ini
    Code: ; Generated (18.02.2015 12:03:12) by Disable Unnecessary Services v1.1 ; www.sordum.org [Services] ;Automatic - Manual - Disabled ;Automatic-Default Disable=NAUpdate Disable=AdobeARMservice Disable=DiagTrack Disable=gupdate Disable=gupdatem Disable=WSearch ;Manual-Default Disable=lfsvc Disable=dmwappushservice[/quote]

    Is there an easy way to define a few profiles with services deactivated, and then to switch profile before restarting?For example

    Profile normal: as is

    Profile online gaming (deactivate all update services such as Office, Google, windows update, file indexing,

    Profile offline gaming ( = online gaming - networking -defender - ...)

    Profile music production (network deactivated, wifi deactivated, bluetooth deactivated, and on and on. Only the minimal)

    Start, Stop, and Disable Services in Windows 10

    Hello Sil, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    I suppose that you could create some .bat files for this purpose with each one using commands to start/enable OR stop/disable the services you want.
