Windows is notorious for having useless features and CPU resource hogging programs/services enabled by default. Today’s post is about removing some of the useless services. Services are kind of like startup programs, they are usually not necessary, they slow down your computer, and they slow down the boot up process; however, some are useful so thats why I have made a list of ones to get rid of.0 To turn off services in windows you go to Start > Run > Type: ‘services.msc‘ > Double Click on the service you want to alter and change the startup type to disabled or manual as directed in the list of unnecessary services below.

Unnecessary Windows Services
- AdobeLM Service: Not all computers have this service, still it is useless, just disable it if you have it.
- Alerter: Disable this one if you are not on a network because you don’t need to receive alerts.
- Application Management: Set this to manual.
- Automatic Updates: Disable it if you don’t require auto updating and patching of Windows.
- ClipBook: Disable this if you are not on a network, since you don’t need to share anything.
- Computer Browser: Disable this too if you are not on a network, as you don’t need to browse and monitor connected computers.

For a long time personal computers have stood apart from many of the other electronic devices, such as TVs, cars and telephones that we use.
Never do we have to wait for the car to boot up before we can get in and drive, nor do we have to wait for the TV to finish a power-on-self-test before we can veg out in front of it.
Instead, these devices are ready to do our bidding the moment we sit behind the wheel or rescue the remote from behind the cushion.
By contrast, our home PCs are downright surly when woken and take their own sweet time to get ready to accept our mouse clicks.
But that reluctance may be about to change.
So said Justin Rattner who as Intel’s chief technology officer should be in a position to know.
“We are at a very interesting point in terms of the products we can make,” he said, during a rare visit to the UK. “Anything we can imagine we can build, we are no longer really limited by the technology.”
Since the 1980’s Unix’s main competitor Windows has gained popularity due to the increasing power of micro-computers with Intel-compatible processors. Windows, at the time, was the only major OS designed for this type of processors. In recent years, however, a new version of Unix called Linux, also specifically developed for micro-computers, has emerged. It can be obtained for free and is therefore a lucrative choice for individuals and businesses.
On the server front, Unix has been closing in on Microsoft’s market share. In 1999, Linux scooted past Novell’s Netware to become the No. 2 server operating system behind Windows NT. In 2001 the market share for the Linux operating system was 25 percent; other Unix flavors 12 percent. On the client front, Microsoft is currently dominating the operating system market with over 90% market share.
Because of Microsoft’s aggressive marketing practices, millions of users who have no idea what an operating system is have been using Windows operating systems given to them when they purchased their PCs. Many others are not aware that there are operating systems other than Windows. But you are here reading an article about operating systems, which probably means that you are trying to make conscious OS decisions for home use or for your organizations. In that case, you should at least give Linux/Unix your consideration, especially if the following is relevant in your environment.
Do you have more than one computer on your desk? What’s the best way to control multiple computers with a single keyboard and mouse? InputDirector.
Using multiples computers in a single space has always been a pain. All those keyboards, displays, and mice not only take up a considerable amount of space but moving from one to another can frustrating. In the past the only solution was to use a KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) to share a mouse and keyboard between multiple computers. A KVM was a piece of hardware with a bunch of cables coming out that allowed you to hook one keyboard and mouse into multiple computers. They did make life easier, but they were clunky to use and required hardware toggles or keyboard controls to switch. Thankfully, there are plenty of software based options these days and I’ve put several through the paces…. here’s my lightening review.
What You’ll Need:
- Two or more computers on the same local network.
- A software based KVM.
- THAT’S IT!

In 2010, Thermaltake won the Red Dot Design Award for Product Design for their collaborative work with BMW DesignworksUSA. That product was called the Thermaltake Level 10 case. The Level 10 was an aesthetic innovation that broke many of the traditional “rules” of the computer chassis industry. The problem? It’s original cost was $850. That’s a little on the expensive side. In 2011, Thermaltake was at it again, reusing the general design of the Level 10 in order to create another case that won the Red Dot Design Award for Product Design, the Thermaltake Level 10 GT. By cutting the cost of such an innovative style of case by more than half, the Level 10 GT began to appeal to a much wider audience. Now Thermaltake has brought us another look in the Level 10 lineup. In this article, Benchmark Reviews brings you an in-depth look at the Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition Case.
Computing enthusiasts are the most likely to be willing to spend a lot of money on a computer case because they realize the potential value in superior build quality, functionality, cable management, and cooling. That being said, any gamer knows the mantra looks>stats. While said somewhat jokingly, the fact of the matter is, we all want that box under (or on top of) our desk to be easy on the eyes. Thermaltake has attempted to enclose all of the important aspects that we look for in a case into the Level 10 GT Snow Edition. The kept the same, visually appealing design as the original Level 10 case, but made some modifications in order to make it less expensive.
