    Question Which of these services can I safely disable?

    Hello. I bought an ASUS GR8 II-TO43Z last month and I'm worried it's running a little hot. When I run a high-resource game like Sims 3 I keep getting notifications that the CPU is reaching 90°C. As I mentioned in my last post, even when it's static or running something light like Chrome it never drops below 48°.

    I used msconfig to look at services and there are 91 services always running in the background. Obviously some of these are essential to keep Windows and Wifi working, possibly also control fans and internal things. But maybe some of them are just hogging resources and I don't need. Do you see any that are safe to disable without risking the safety of hardware or software?

    There are also a couple small apps you can download and install to disable unneeded services

    Spybot Antibeacon - disables some Telemetry services

    Shut Up - disables the same and a little more

    These allow an easy way to disable and re enable some services

    You don't need Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless Event Log as this is just a process that runs in conjunction with your intel wireless driver for wireless which you don't need. The intel software for checking wireless etc to me is just bloatware and i always uninstall intel proset completely and simply use windows wireless for connecting. So unless you actually use intel proset wireless, you don't need this

    Just leave them alone. It's a myth that need debunking that services are resource hog and you won't see performance gain. A waste of time.

    Not really a myth. Removing/deactivating processes frees up processor and memory resources, and there's quite a few bloaty/useless things running all the time that can indeed be safely disabled during "normal" gaming use, even if the OS needs to load them in again when you do other things (like, say, open Microsoft Office). Windows has always been notorious for performance-clogging bloat ... the latest-and-greatest Win10 builds are no exception to this ... but that being said, modern hardware is immensely powerful and doesn't show much (if any) measurable slowdown unless you're running enough tons and tons of extraneous processes to actually consume all the available threads and memory.

    It's an easy enough concept to prove. Just open several dozen browser instances on a variety of websites, maybe launch a windowed game or something as well, you'll eventually reach a threshold where you can't really do anything else because all your hardware resources are saturated and everything gets slowed down to the point of near unusability. Even the mouse and keyboard inputs become frustrating to use, clicking on something can take many seconds or a few minutes to even spit out an error message.

    The "experts" claim Android is much smarter than Windows in this respect and even sometimes advise you never install any sort of task killer apps. But again, this argument is easily debunked by simply observing how sluggish and unresponsive the system gets when trying to simultaneously run too many things.
