Manage and optimize Vista services more efficiently

Services are special components that manage many important tasks on your system, such connectivity, security and file indexing. Not all of them are necessary, but if you want to disable any of them you probably need to plunge deep into Windows' settings – and have some technical knowledge, as well.

This is where PC Services Optimizer comes in handy, by providing you with a very intuitive, user-friendly interface to manage system services. You'll be able to select which ones to load on Windows launch, optimize all active services and even create different user profiles for different service configurations, depending on the way you use the computer. The only thing missing here, in my opinion, is having some kind of general report about all currently active and disabled services.

PC Services Optimizer includes several wizard-like configuration tools that help you decide which services you need and which you don't. The latter will be disabled, saving memory and processor power and thus enabling Windows to launch faster and run more smoothly.

And in case something goes terribly wrong, don't worry because PC Services Optimizer has a Rescue service that will restore all services to default values.

With PC Services Optimizer you can decide which system services you want to load and which not, saving resources and tweaking Windows settings more efficiently.
