Vista Services Optimizer

A standard Vista installation turned on many services that you may not have any uses for, consuming CPU power and memory that can potentially slow down your computer. Vista Services Optimizer is a free tweaking tool that can improve your Vista performance and security with a simple mouse click.

Vista Services Optimizer analyzes your computer and suggests services that can be safely turned off. You can choose to perform an automatic tune up based on what is suitable for your system or use a manual tune up that lets you select from a more detailed list of features that you want to disable.

Moreover, it provides you with detailed information about certain services and enables you to query some services information online, if you find any difficulty. And the system restore feature enables you to restore the settings to their defaults at any time.

Even though the application still in its beta stage, it provides solid performance. The automatic tweaking system makes it easy to use without much technical know how. The ‘Smart Rescue Center’ enables you to role back any changes made to the system. So you can use it confidently.
