That's an outstanding resource. It's the very first place I went after installing Windows 7 (after my antivirus install of course). :)

I agree. Do you think this is worth pinning somewhere to draw attention to Black Viper's site? Software maybe?

I think that would be worthwhile. When his site was down some time ago, its value was highlighted by the number of mirror sites that appeared.

Moved and pinned. I also added a link to Black Viper's home page in the first post.

We (me and TheJoker) have successfully used the following tool in one of the threads:

SMART: A Utility For Tweaking Windows 7, Vista, XP Services

You can always tweak your services manually individually, but what this utility does is automate the entire process to give you the desired settings. Based on the recommendations of the BlackVipers Service Configuration Guide, the utility offers 3 sets of pre- configured tweaks :

1. Safe
2. Tweaked
3. Advanced or BareBones
