    AppeptGause reacted to imurphy in Running WDC portable remotely via psexec doesn't work correctly   
    I've been playing around with trying to use WDC remotely on machines without pestering the user of the PC and I've noticed what I think is a bug in language handling, and maybe the handling of the config file.
     
    If I run WDC from the screen on a machine it correctly opens in Spanish and displays the options I have selected. I am running the exe from a command prompt and have CD'd to the directory where WDC is stored. So far so good.
     
    However if I use psexec to remotely connect to the same machine and cd to the directory and then type WiseDiskCleaner.exe -a it opens on the console of the machine, but in english. It also displays the notifications about having sucessfully run, which I think I have disabled.
     
    It makes no difference if I connect as the logged in user or as the administrator account, it does exactly the same.
     
    Has anyone tried using WDC via script or psexec, or remote execution of any kind?
     
    This problem can be reproduced by doing the following from your own PC:
     
    Download psexec from microsoft (www.sysinternals.com)
    Open a cmd window
    psexec -u <localhost>\<local admin> \\<pcname> cmd
    once you have the remote command shell open
    cd c:\wisediskcleaner\   (or where ever it is)
    wisediskcleaner -a
     
     
    this will launch the exe remotely but the systray icon displays on the console of the PC, as does the sucess message.

    If you are reading this article you are probably desperate, but before you panic let me tell you that there is hope, and there is probably more hope than you think…. Even if your hard drive has an internal mechanical malfunction, data can be recovered without having to send the hard drive to a data recovery service. Yes! you heard right, I’m sure you have come across articles that will tell you how to recover data from a damaged partition, you will find a ton of those on the web, but when your hard drive starts malfunctioning none of those articles are going to help you solve your problem, This article will.
     
    Corrupted file system
    If the hard drive gets detected by Windows and can be accessed but you do not see any data inside, or you get a message saying that the drive needs to be formatted. You probably have a corrupted file system in you hands. The solution for this is a good file recovery software. I’ve tried many, and my choice is “Wise Data Recovery” from wisecleaner.com. Many of the recovery suites out there claim that they can recover data and they probably can, but can they find everything that you want to recover? Most likely not! This software can. But don’t take my word for it, download it from their website and give it a try, you will see what I’m talking about. It will let you see what it can find and and will even give you an assessment of the level of the possibility that the file might be recovered. But the software does have its little drawbacks. If your file you want to recover is not in the scanning result list,it can’t be recovered. Anyway, it is a completely free software and scans way faster than others, it does no harm to give it a shot.
    Clicking noise of death
    If your hard drive is making the common “clung… clung… clung…” sound your head are having trouble reading the contents of the drive. This is one of the worst problems you can have since the arm of the drive is not functioning properly and therefore cannot read the disks inside. As some of you might know this is not repairable, at least not at home, Hard drives need to be opened in dust free environments, and by specialized personnel, so do not even attempt to open it if you want your data back!!!. Many people will just give up at this point and send hard drive to a data recovery service. However, before you do that and spend an arm and a leg, there is something you can do. 
     
    Hard drive does not get detected
    If the computer does not detect the hard drive, or the computer just does not want to turn on when the hard drive is connected to it, you might have a bad hard drive board. This is the big circuit board located at the bottom of your drive. These easily replaceable boards tend to get damaged over time due to the heat generated by the hard drive itself. I will tell you how to replace this board with the following solution:
    There are a number of places on the web that will sell you these boards. If you can’t find it or you are a cheap guy you can always resort to eBay and buy a used hard drive with the same model number as yours, remove the board from the used drive, and use it on broken one. This will probably cost you less than purchasing the board alone.If your hard drive is old it makes more sense to buy another hard drive, on the other hand if the hard drive is new you are better off buying the board. These boards run around $50 each. If you decide to purchase another hard drive or the board alone, make sure you are getting the exact same board! I cannot stress this enough. You can have drives with the same brands and specifications with slight variations on their board and consequently on their firmware, if this is the case the board will not work, so make sure you are getting exactly what you need before pressing that “buy now” button!
     
    Hard drive gets detected but still does not work
    If Windows detects the hard drive but it can’t be accessed, won’t give you the option to format it, or its properties. You probably have dirty contacts on your board. Usually when this happens you do not hear the famous “clicking noise of death” noise, but rather a repetitive “rrrrrr rrrrrr” sound, as if the hard drive is reading the same data over and over, or you do not hear any sound at all. It is important to mention that this behavior does involve the computer detecting the drive but does not involve the “clicking noise of death”. To solve this problem try the following: Remove the main board from the bottom of the hard drive and clean the bottom contacts. That board that you see underneath the drive is actually sitting on top of un-soldered contacts. Many Hard Drives operate at high temperatures, and this tends to melt the circuit board’s coating. When this happens this coating will spill over these contacts, and since they are not soldered their dirty metal surfaces will no longer touch. To solve this, remove the screws from the board and flip it. You will see a row of contacts usually in more than one location. Rub the surface of the contacts with a pencil eraser, just as if you were erasing something you wrote. This will actually clean those contacts better than any other method. Screw the board back in place and try it. (If your hard drive happens to have pin connectors rather than flat ones, disregard this tip and buy a new board.)
    Clicking noise of death (Last Resort Solution)
    This trick will actually work 60% of the cases, so you do have a good probability of getting your data back. I have to warn you that after freezing your hard drive there is also a good chance that the hard drive won’t work ever again, therefore this procedure should only be attempted as a very last resort.
    1 – Place the Hard Drive inside a Zip Lock bag and put it in the freezer for about 2 hours.
    2 – After that take it out and connect it to the computer as fast as you can so that it does not have time to warm up. Make sure that you do not remove the hard drive out of the bag and that you open it as little as possible when connecting it to the power and data cables, so that outside air doesn’t come in and create condensation on the drive.
    3 - Turn your computer on, look for your data and take it out as fast as you possibly can. Time is key here because you do not know if that drive is going to ever work again. Make sure you do this on a fast computer that does not take to long to boot up, if possible connect the hard drive to an external USB enclosure so that you do not waste time with the computer booting up. Also make sure you know the exact location of your data; is better if you go to straight to the folder rather than using Windows search utility, as searching the drive will heat it up faster due to the amount of work the arm will have to make. Drives usually work for a few minutes and stop working once they heat up. So hurry!!!
    4 – If after freezing the hard drive and connecting it to the computer you are still not able to access it and you still hear the noise, hold the drive in your hand and, without taking it out of the bag, tap it with your knuckles on one side to see if this releases the heads, you obviously have to do this while the hard drive is powered on and connected to the computer.
     
    Final Thoughts
    If none of these tips work for you and you still want your data back is time to send your drive to a data recovery service, there are number of those on the web, I have never actually tried one, but some of them will charge you a flat fee regardless of the problem. However, these services will not guarantee your back all of the time, in fact most of them regardless of what they claim, will just have a 75% to 80% success rate. There are some things you just can’t recover from, like an arm scratching the whole surface of a plate. Best thing is to back up your data regularly.

    How to Recover Deleted Files in Windows For Free? Check this video

     
     
     
    Now computers are a common fixture in pretty much every household, it's kind of ridiculous to expect everyone to know how to fix them. There are computer guys for that, just like there are mechanics to change the oil in your car.
     
    But what I'm about to tell you can save you some dollars. Before you pack up your injured machine and drive it to the local repair shop.
     
    5. One Free Program May Fix the Whole Thing
     
    If your computer's having problems like it's running slow or IE stops responding. And it's fixable without you having to pay some guy $200 to do it for you. Use Wise PC 1stAid, the awesome thing is that the repair program is totally free, so if it doesn't work, you've lost nothing. Just download it, install it and run it. Using it is as easy as following the directions on a microwave pizza. Everything is streamlined because it's written for average people who consistently get themselves into computer trouble. Or you could, you know, take it to a guy who will do the same exact thing, except charge you $200.
             
    However, if you do find a problem that's over your head, you'll sometimes find that the repair shop is unavoidable. 
     
    4. It's Going to Be Expensive as Hell
     
    Before you pick up the phone, tell the person that your computer "is being stupid" and ask how much it's going to cost to fix it, know that the reason their response will sound muffled is because they're talking through gritted teeth while flipping off the phone. It's impossible to give an exact diagnosis over the phone for the same reasons that your doctor couldn't tell that you have bronchitis without first running a few tests. But with the right information, they can give you a couple of scenarios and at least a ballpark estimate of each.
     
    This is important, because hourly rates vary dramatically from shop to shop. I've heard prices range from $40 to $150 per hour. If your local shop falls into those higher rates and your repair is going to take three or four hours, you're now talking about a bill that's equal to a brand new tower. Yep, from time to time it's actually cheaper to buy a whole new system. And that is a very real decision you're going to have to make. "Do I repair the one I have, or is it smarter to just buy a completely new machine?"
     
    Your 5-year-old machine is basically worthless now, and this is something that very few people are prepared to hear. It seems downright unfair that the system you paid a thousand dollars for just a few years ago has been reduced to the price of the scrap metal inside it, but that's the way the computer world works. So now it's down to some simple math.
     
    If your current computer is worth 50 bucks and the problem is a fried hard drive, is it worth spending $100 on a new one? More importantly, how long do the rest of your components have before they are obsolete? Are you about to drop that much money on a hard drive, only to be forced into buying a brand new system next year? Ask the tech if the repair they're about to perform boils down to polishing a turd.
     
    I can't tell you how many times I've seen a person sink 300 bucks into a repair when they could have spent the same amount for a lower end tower that is actually more powerful than the one they just fixed. Remember, you already have working components that don't need to be replaced: mouse, keyboard, monitor, etc. When you strip all of that out of the overall price and just look at the cost of the tower alone, you'll be surprised how cheap it is.
     
    But in order to even reach the point of making that decision, they're going to need some detailed information.
     
    3. Be Honest With the Repair Person
     
    If you've ever seen the show House, you know that they regularly bring up an interesting phenomenon we do as humans that just destroys any chance we have at helping others: "Everybody lies." Any person who has ever worked at a job fixing things can tell you that it's absolutely true, and it is the most frustrating thing in the world to computer techs.
     
    The thing is, there is nothing you can do on a computer that we haven't already seen a thousand times. We know people watch porn -- hell, three-fourths of all repairs I've ever made have been because of bad porn sites. I've seen a computer overheat because the person stuffed a bag of weed inside the case and the plastic got caught in the fan. I've seen a tower infested with roaches, and another that got infected with a virus because a little kid was trying to learn how to make and distribute one.
     
    Yet people are still afraid to come clean with what they were doing when things went messy, opting instead to say, "I don't know. I was using it just fine one minute, and the next thing I knew it just went crazy on me, out of the blue!" They're afraid to simply tell us what happened because nobody wants to be blamed. Like they're afraid we'll look at them differently or scold them for being so stupid.
     
    The truth is (aside from the oddball cases I just mentioned), almost everybody does exactly what you were doing. The reason repair guys have a job in the first place is because people continually mess up their computers by going to bad websites, downloading screen savers, opening spam emails, installing questionable games and using torrent sites without knowing how to spot the bad things.
     
    By not being honest about how your computer got screwed in the first place, you're adding additional time to the repair process. Because now the tech has to track down the source of the problem to make sure it's not coming from a file buried in the system that will simply respawn the same problems once the symptoms have been alleviated. And that translates into more money that you'll be paying because you'd rather keep your poop fetish to yourself. Wanna know something scary? In the process of fixing the computer, they're going to find out anyway.
     
    Trying to cover your tracks by deleting your history and clearing your cache only adds more time to the repair.
     
    2. Remember What You Were Doing When It Died (And Don't Delete Your History)
     
    Bad websites aren't the only things that screw up a computer. At any given moment, there are dozens of programs running quietly in the background, all written by different companies, telling your computer to do different things. If one of them is telling your system, "At the next stoplight, make a right," and you plug in an MP3 player that tells it, "At the next stoplight, make a left," your computer freaks out. This happens all the time, and it's not your fault.
     
    However, when you bring it in for repair, and the guy asks you what happened, you can't just tell them, "It was working fine one minute, and the next minute it just got all stupid." You'd be more helpful by just staring at them in cold, dead silence. You need to let them know exactly what you were doing when it flipped out. Did you turn on your printer? Did you plug something in? Did you remove something? Did you accidentally spin-kick it during ninja training?
     
    As I mentioned earlier, knowing what you were doing with the computer at the exact moment of its demise eliminates several hours of work. It's for this reason that you need to keep your browsing history intact.
     
    Any time we see that the history has been cleared the day it was brought in, the first thing we think is, "Porn." That gives us a general direction to go, but it's only a guess, and that is about the worst way to dive into a fix. What generally happens is that we take a shot in the dark and it turns up a dead end. So we have to start from scratch with a brand new guess, which again leads to nothing. In most cases, if we know what we're dealing with, we could have your computer back in your hands so fast that you could have it messed up again by dinner time. Instead, we have to experiment over and over until we whittle down to the source through a process of elimination, and your bill ends up being five times more than it should have been.
     
    But aside from just finding out what the problem is, if we know where it came from, we can warn you so you don't have to go through this again. "The problem was that your phone wasn't compatible with Windows, so we updated the drivers and it works fine now." In the case of malware, many people acquire these problems completely oblivious as to how it happened, no porn involved at all. Maybe they're really into knitting, and they frequent a mittens-making community where a banner ad dropped a piece of rogue software onto their system. By tracking down the source, we can warn the person to either stay away from that site completely or to let the site's owner know of the problem so they can get the ad or its network removed. Otherwise, a return trip to the repair shop is inevitable, and those bills are going to just keep stacking up.
     
    "Hold on" some of you will scream in a fit of rage and panic. "That's my favorite website" OK, you might want to sit down for this one, because it's hard for some people to accept that ...
     
    1. You May Be Losing Some Things That You Love
     
    I used to have an aunt who was the sweetest woman in the world. She had virtually no vices to speak of -- she didn't drink, smoke or even curse. But that 60-year-old woman loved poker. She loved it so much that she bought a computer specifically because one of her sons told her that she could play online for free, which would eliminate any worries of her running away to Vegas and having to blow mobsters to pay off her unfathomable gambling debts.
     
    Anyone who has used a computer for more than four seconds knows what happened next. Within a matter of days, her computer became an $800 paperweight. Knowing I was a computer guy, she called me, and while cleaning up the mess I explained that I'd have to uninstall her new poker game, and that all of the online versions she played would also have to be avoided. She sadly agreed, and we got everything back to normal. But the upside was that I was able to track down another clean poker game for her, and that made her happy again.
     
    One week later, I got another call. Same problem. When I started the cleanup again, I saw that she had been frequenting five completely new poker sites -- all of them dumping the same malware into her hard drive. When I brought it up, she explained, "The one we put on there last week wasn't very good, so I found new ones."
     
    That exact situation is the problem with new computer users, and it's not entirely their fault. When you turn on the television, you can flip to any channel you want without worrying that the show is going to break your TV. You can go through every radio station on the dial knowing that you're not going to land on one that forces your speakers to play nothing but commercials and randomly switches back to that station without your input. No device or broadcast on the planet does that -- except computers.
     
    It's unthinkable that randomly clicking on links would break the very thing that was designed to let you click links. That visiting websites would prevent you from visiting other websites. That playing the wrong game could cripple your computer so badly that it prevents you from being able to play even that game. Everything a person knows about the normal world is turned upside-down on the Internet, and it takes some training and education before you can dive in and start clicking things.
     
    It's going to turn out that some of the things you love are the very things that are causing your computer problems, and the only way to fix it is to completely remove those programs. There is no other way around it. Those programs are specifically designed to be fun and interesting because that's what keeps you from uninstalling it, hence stopping the malware from funneling in. But unless you accept it and let us do what we need to do, you're going to be back in that repair shop every week until you have to start blowing us like mobsters to pay your unfathomable computer repair debt.

    How to Recover Deleted Files in Windows For Free? Check this video

     
     
     
    Most users’ computers have more than two partitions, we store different files and folders in different partitions. I am no exception, I have four partitions in my desktop, that is C: System, D: Backup, E: Work, F: Entertainment. There are some secret files and important documents that I don’t want to be seen by anyone, so it is imperative to hide this partition or the important files from the prying eyes. In this tutorial, I am gonna show you how to hide any free partition( the system partition not included), files and folders.

     
    1. Follow the next steps to hide a partition:
     
    Step 1: Right mouse click on Computer
     
    Step 2: Click on Manage
     
    Step 3: From the list of options click on Disk Management that will be located in the left bottom section

     
    Step 4: All your hard disks and its partitions will be shown in the right hand side
     
    Step 5: Right mouse click on the partition that you want to hide and select “Change Drive Letters and Paths”

     
    Step 6: Click on “Remove” and click “Yes”


     
    Step 7: Your drive will now be hidden in Computer
     
     
    To unhide the partition :
     
    Step 1: Go to Disk Management again and right mouse click on the hidden partition (there will not be a drive letter on the hidden drive) again select “Change Drive Letters and Path”
     
    Step 2: Click on Add and select an appropriate drive letter.
     
    Step 3: Click OK
     
    Step 4: Now the drive is visible.
     
    But this partition hiding technique also has disadvantages: 
    1. What if I just want to hide some files but not the whole partition. 
    2. Security issue, I mean some other guys with some computer skills can unhide this partition with several clicks, it is not very safe.
     
    So it is more convenient and secure if we can hide any file or folder we want and also encrypt them.
     
    Wise Folder Hider(http://www.wisecleaner.com/wisefolderhider.html) is a perfect solution for that. It is freeware, you don’t need any license key to use it.

     
    It is pretty straightforward to hide files and folders with it. The first time you opened it, you are prompted a window asking you to create your password. Next time you open it, just type in the password. If you want to hide any file, folder or a USB, just click the corresponding tab and choose the target file, folder or USB, or just drag and drop any files or folders into it. Simple like that.


     
    Not simple enough? I have an easier way. When you installed Wise Folder Hider, a shortcut of it is automatically added to your context menu. You can just right click any file or folder and then choose Hide Folder with Wise Folder, there you go, it is hidden by Wise Folder Hider.

     
    Still not satisfied? Some users may be concerned that I have to unhide the files when I need them, and hide them again when I am done using. What if I forget to hide them? Even I remember every time I use them, it is too many steps for me. The good thing about Wise Folder Hider is you can open any hidden files in Wise Folder Hider, you don’t have to unhide and hide a file over and over again. When you open any hidden files in it, it becomes visible to you. When you Close Wise Folder Hider, it becomes hidden again.

     
    Hope the things I said above can be of help to you guys.

    Hello all members,
     
    The "Mark Solved" option has been activated in the Computer Trouble-Shooting Discussion Board. Now originating posters (OPs) can select their own "Best Answer."
     
    How it works:
     
    Each member response to an originating poster's issue will now include a "Mark Solved" button that can only be seen by the OP (see image1). If a specific response solves the OPs issue, he/she can simply click the Mark Solved button for that specific response and it will automatically do two things:
     
    1. It will update the index to show the OPs issue as "Answered." (see image2)
    2. It will add the "Best Answer" to the top of the OPs post. (see image3)
     
    This new feature could really benefit members or guests that are looking for solutions while browsing or searching the Computer Trouble-Shooting Discussion Board.
     
    Note: The Wise Specific Product Boards do not have this feature enabled.

    AppeptGause reacted to Linkin in How To Create a System Restore Point Manually In Windows7& 8.1?   
    System Restore uses restore points to return your system files and settings to an earlier point in time without affecting personal files. Restore points are created automatically every week, and just before significant system events, such as the installation of a program or device driver. You can also create a restore point manually.
     
    In this article, I am gonna show you how to create a system restore point manually in Windows 7&8.1. Just follow the steps below:
     
    Step 1: Open Control Panel
     
    Step 2: Click System and Security--->System


    Step 3: Now on the left side of the window you need to click on option System protection

    Step 4: In small window that show up click Create

    Step 5: Type a description for your System Restore Point and click Create button

    Step 6: Wait for couple minutes until System Restore Point is created and you are done. Close all existing windows.


    It is easier if you use the ‘Backup’ feature of Wise Care 365, it just takes 2 steps:

    1. Click ‘Backup’
     
    1. Click ‘Create a System Restore Point’



    You are done! Whenever you want to restore your computer to a previous point, you just need to click ‘Restore’. You will find all the restore points that are created automatically and manually are there. Choose any restore point and then click ‘Restore’, you system will go back to the previous state specified.

    The one thing I did not try was a clean uninstall of Wise Care 365 Pro and Wise Memory Optimizer.   By that I mean after the uninstaller finished I did not look for folders and files that may have been left over and then manually delete them.  I didn't want to do it yet because I figured that method could require re-entering my license code on the reinstall unless it is kept in the registry.  I just hate having to re-enter license codes on re-installs since I have had a bunch of problems doing that with other software in the past.
     
    If I do a clean uninstall and remove all related files and folders will that require re-entering the license code when I reinstall?  If so will there will be a license count problem or any other problem when I do this?

    How to Recover Deleted Files in Windows For Free? Check this video

     
     
    To manually start Windows XP with a clean boot, follow these steps:
    Step 1: Start the System Configuration Utility
    Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK. The System Configuration Utility dialog box is displayed. Step 2: Configure selective startup options
    In the System Configuration Utility dialog box, click the General tab, and then click Selective Startup. Click to clear the Process SYSTEM.INI File check box. Click to clear the Process WIN.INI File check box. Click to clear the Load Startup Items check box. Verify that Load System Services and Use Original BOOT.INI are checked. Click the Services tab. Click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box. Click Disable All, and then click OK. When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer. Step 3: Log on to Windows
    If you are prompted, log on to Windows. When you receive the following message, click to select the Don't show this message or launch the System Configuration Utility when Windows start check box, and then click OK.

    Notes You have used the System Configuration Utility to make changes to the way Windows starts. The System Configuration Utility is currently in Diagnostic or Selective Startup mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time Windows starts. Choose the Normal Startup mode on the General tab to start Windows normally and undo the changes you made using the System Configuration Utility. Step 4: Optional step to disable features
    If the clean boot fixed the error, you do not have to perform this step.

    Important If your problem is not fixed and you do have to follow this step, it permanently removes all restore points from your computer. The System Restore feature uses restore points to restore your computer to an earlier state. If you remove the restore points, you can no longer restore Windows to an earlier state.

    This step temporarily disables Microsoft features such as Plug and Play, networking, event logging, and error reporting.
    Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK.
    The System Configuration Utility dialog box is displayed. Click the General tab, click to clear the Load System Services check box, and then click OK. When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer. If these steps helped you start your computer in a clean-boot state, you are finished. If these steps did not help, go to the “Next Steps” section. If you have to return your computer to a normal startup state, go to “Steps to configure Windows to use a Normal startup state”.
    Steps to configure Windows to use a Normal startup state
    After you used the clean boot to resolve your problem, you can follow these steps to configure Windows XP to start normally.
    Click Start, and then click Run. Type msconfig, and then click OK.
    The System Configuration Utility dialog box is displayed. Click the General tab, click Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services, and then click OK. When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.

    AppeptGause reacted to Linkin in What Windows Services You Can Choose to Disable Safely?   
    It is true that disabling unneeded and unused Windows Services would speed up your computer. So we are wondering what Windows services might not be absolutely necessary, and which of them you can disable without ruining your computing experience. 
     
    Notice: 
    1. Please read the description of each service first and then decide what services you can disable accordingly. 
    2. Manual services start only if they are used by your system and you won’t encounter problems. It is the best status for a service if you are not very sure whether to disable it.

    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.


    Tablet PC Input Service (in Windows 7) / Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Service (Windows 8): you can safely disable this service, unless you use Tablet PC. Some "Tablet PC Components" like the Snipping tool or Windows Journal will continue to function, while the Tablet PC Input Panel will not. The default startup type is Manual. You can set it even to Disabled without negatively impacting your computing experience;
     
    Windows Time: if your computer doesn’t have access to the Internet then you don’t need to update the system time from online servers. You can safely disable this service. But if you do, then this service will keep your system time accurate. Safe setting: Manual;
     
    Secondary logon: if you are the only user of your computer, it can be disabled. But only if you don’t plan to use more than one user account. Safe setting: Manual;
     
    Fax: unless you use your computer to send or receive faxes using fax resources available on your system (for ex. by using a fax-modem), you can disable it. Safe setting: Manual;
     
    Print Spooler: if you don’t have a printer attached to your computer and you don’t use virtual printers (e.g.: PDF creator, Microsoft XPS Document Writer, Snagit, etc) you can disable it. Safe setting: Manual;
     
    Offline Files: unless you use the offline file functionality from Windows, you can disable it. Safe setting: Manual;
    NOTE: This service is available only in Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate and Enterprise. In Windows 8 it is available only in the Pro and Enterprise editions.
     
    Routing and Remote Access Service: This service offers routing services to businesses in local area and wide area networks. It allows computers to dial in to the local computer in order for it to get access to the local network. On a home computer you won’t need such features. Safe setting: Manual;
     
    Bluetooth Support Service: unless you use Bluetooth devices such as keyboards, mice, printers or phones, you can disable this service. Keep in mind that, if you choose to disable this service, then no Bluetooth devices will be recognized. Also, the already connected Bluetooth devices may fail to work properly. Safe setting: Manual;
     
    BitLocker Drive Encryption Service: unless you use Microsoft’s Encryption Software (included in Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise Edition, and in Windows 8 Pro and Enterprise), you can disable this service. BitLocker Drive Encryption is a feature that allows users to protect data by providing encryption for entire volumes. Safe setting: Manual;

    Windows Defender: if you use a third-party security solution (antivirus and antispyware), then disabling this service is a safe choice. Safe setting: Manual.
