VPC… optimization to do before you run a VPC

Clemens a RD colleague, listed a set of services which he typically shuts off before running a VPC. I found that list pretty useful. Put it in a cmd file before starting a VPC. A List of services which you can stop using the net stop command is available here. You might choose to stop more services than listed below. Also you might have different Anti-Virus software to stop it’s services refer to this list.
You’ll typically have much more ram and speed available once these services are stopped.
net stop mssqlserver
iisreset /stop
net stop "Message Queuing Triggers"
net stop "Message Queuing"
net stop "DirectX Debug Service"
net stop "Machine Debug Manager"
net stop "InCD File System Service"
net stop "Help and Support"
net stop "Firewall Client Agent"
net stop "eTrust Antivirus Realtime Server"
net stop "eTrust Antivirus RPC Server"
net stop "eTrust Antivirus Job Server"
net stop "Print Spooler"
net stop "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)"
net stop "Terminal Services"
net stop "Task Scheduler"
net stop "SSDP Discovery Service"
net stop "IT Connection Manager"
net stop "Smart Card"
net stop "Infrared Monitor"
net stop "Error Reporting Service"
net stop "Web Client"
taskkill /IM WindowsSearch.exe
taskkill /IM WindowsSearchFilter.exe
taskkill /F /IM WindowsSearchIndexer.exe
taskkill /IM gcasDtServ.exe
taskkill /F /IM msnmsgr.exe
I added some more tasks to stop based on my Symantec anti-virus software which was running…
net stop "Norton AntiVirus Auto Protect Service"
net stop "Symantec Event Manager"
net stop "Symantec Core LC"
net stop "SafeNet Monitor Service"
net stop "Symantec Network Drivers Service"
net stop "Symantec Password Validation"
net stop "Symantec Settings Manager"
net stop "SymWMI Service"
net stop "SAVScan"

    Indeed very useful information. I would like to add one more thing, if you are using VPC on laptop, to speed up make sure your laptop has large HDD with spin rate at 7200 RPM, as opposed to 4200 RPM.By the way at mumbai launch, you had mentioned, you are looking to have a new laptop and dell has offered you some best price… Which model you are going for and configuration? What is the price? May be I can think of having the same.
