A computer program or process that runs in the background of Windows 7 and that provides support to other program can be called services. If you want to speed up the performance of Windows 7 and thereby reduce the overhead of background process, then stop the running process that you are not using currently. But if you disable a service that you are currently using, it may lower the performance of your computer. A large collection of services is there; among them, some of the standard Windows 7 services are back ground intelligent transfer service, base filtering engine, Bluetooth support service, Cryptographic services etc. These services are all from svchost.exe service. With the use of services configuration, a Windows installer can customize the services in your computer.
