How to Disable Useless Services That Cause a Slow Computer

There are countless reasons for your computer computer to be running so slowly.

The primary reason for that is the amount of programs and services that your central processing unit has to work with all at once before being able to process your commands. However, this guide will help you learn how to disable all of those useless services that are slowing down your computer.

Fewer Processes Equals More Speed

When your central processing unit has to process multiple services at once, they tend to bottleneck, which means the amount of processing power becomes spread so thinly that barely any service can be loaded at all. By disabling those services, you can prevent this.

How To Speed Up Your Computer

The first step in disabling useless services that slow down your computer is to prevent programs from starting automatically. The more programs that startup automatically, the longer your computer takes to boot up and the longer everything after boot-up takes, which is everything.

Do this by going into System Configuration, selecting “Startup,” and unchecking all of the extraneous processes that you don’t need. Don’t worry, this isn’t the same as deleting them. You’ll still have access to these services whenever you want. You’ll just have to manually activate them.

The next step is to go through all of your services and applications and delete all of the ones that you don’t need or want anymore. This frees up plenty more space for your preferred programs to run smoothly.


By limiting the amount of programs that you have set to automatically boot up on startup and by lowering the total number of services you have installed on your computer, you can increase your computer’s speed back to much closer to what it was when you first fell in love with it.
