Computer Management - Services and Applications

Services and Applications (S&A) - When you optimize your OS this is where you set them.

When you optimize your Operating System you want to use the least amount of memory for the Operating System as possible. The more memory you have for your programs to run on or in the faster the program will respond turning off unneeded or unnecessary background programs (which is what they are) will increase the available memory for your programs.

Some steps in the optimization process may cause you computer to BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) or stop responding so you have to use care when disabling these programs, normally if I don't know what the program does and the description is too cryptic I set the program to manual start, if on restart the computer crashes then I know that the program is required. If it starts normally I look at the program to see if it was started by another program, sometimes this will happen even though in the "Dependencies" page of the properties for the program the bottom block for "The following system components depend on this..." is blank. Then I set it back to "Automatic" for the startup type.

System Manager - Services and Applications view

Services are programs that are installed to run in the background with out intervention or interaction by the user. From the right  window if you right click on the service you can control the service. You can stop, start, restart, disable, or set the way the service will start.

This is the Extended view of the S&A, if you use this view [the default view] in the right window where you see the 'Select an item to view...' when you select the service a description will display what the service does.

This is the Standard view of the Services and Applications, it takes up less space, for those with limited viewing area this is a better choice. You select this view by the tab at the bottom of the manager. You can sort the view by clicking on one of the column headers, such as Name, Description, Status, and so on. One thing that you should do for security is to change the Log On, as you can see by the graphic I need to change the ASP.NET to Local Service from Network Service. Some hackers have figured out how to spoof the Network Service account. Always something........

Standard view

Properties of a service view. From this view you can change the Startup type, stop, start or disable the service. It also gives a description of the service and the actual path to the executable, this information is handy if you are having a problem with the service and need to find the actual file or path for regedit. You can also find out what other services depend on this service or what services it depends on to start. You can set the Recovery rate also. If the service is having problems and is shutting down unexpectedly you can set the recovery to restart the service. For some services that require an account to start you can set the account and password in the Log On tab.

Internet Information Services, if you have the local Web Server installed this is where you would create local web sites, set up the properties of your local web site, stop, start, and restart.

And one last thing, as with most [using this term loosely] Microsoft products putting the mouse pointer in some white space, and pressing F1 will bring up help.
