Sometimes when I play I want to close multiple processes and services to free up some RAM and CPU cycles as well as just to avoid some potential problems. Rather than doing it manually, I use a batch file to do it automatically. Here's how:
NET STOP "NetLimiter" NET STOP "O&O Defrag" NET STOP "Print Spooler" NET STOP "Windows Time" TASKKILL /F /T /IM ClipDiary.exe TASKKILL /F /T /IM Launchy.exe TASKKILL /F /T /IM Pitaschio.exe TASKKILL /F /T /IM AVEDESK.EXE TASKKILL /F /T /IM oodtray.exe PAUSE
To restart them again when I came back from gaming:
NET START "NetLimiter" NET START "O&O Defrag" NET START "Print Spooler" NET START "Windows Time" START "" "C:\Program Files\Clipdiary\ClipDiary.exe" START "" "C:\Program Files\Launchy\Launchy.exe" START "" "C:\Program Files\Pitaschio\Pitaschio.exe" START "" "C:\Program Files\AveDesk\AVEDESK.EXE" START "" "C:\Windows\system32\oodtray.exe" PAUSE
Put the code in a text file and rename the .txt extension to .bat (ensure "Hide extensions for known file types" is unchecked in Control Panel, Folder Options). The NET START/STOP is used for processes. To get the exact name, goto Start, Run, and type in "services.msc". TASKKILL is used for regular processes. Hit CTRL+ALT+DEL to see the process names. PAUSE leaves the command line window open to verify that the batch file ran successfully. Shout out to google and these sites for showing me the way.
