In this tutorial I’ll tell you about the services which can be safely set to MANUAL.

1. Right-click on My Computer icon on desktop and select Manage, it’ll open a window, in which goto: Services & Application -> Services. To disable or Set a service to MANUAL, double-click on the service and select the desired option in Startup list box.

2. You can also open the same by going to Administrative Tools and open Computer Management.

NOTE: Always set the service to MANUAL, never disable it. So that whenever windows needs to start a service it can easily start and use it. If you set any service to DISABLED, then windows will not be able to start it and will give ERROR…
