Services and background processes have an influence on the overall performance of a computer and the performance of the applications running on the computer. If you cut down on the number of services that are running at a given time, you reduce the power consumption and increase the stability of the system, while improving system responsiveness. Join us to learn how the Windows 7 Service Control Manager has been extended so that a service can be started and stopped automatically when a specific system event, or trigger, occurs on the system. Find out how trigger-start capabilities remove the need for services to start up automatically at computer startup and then poll or wait for an event to occur.   BenkoTips Live and On Demand brings events to you. This webcast series is dedicated to helping developers explore the possible.
