VMware 5.0 - What services did it create?


Recommended Posts


I am a VMware 4.xx user & at one point I was able to see what services VMware 4.xx added & I set them from automatic to manual (so the program would start the services when the application was launched).

I was curious what services Vmware 5.xx adds to a windows machine so that I can keep my PC performance up. I do not use VMware all that often (once a week) so the constant loading of VMware 5.xx services is not what I need for my system.

Currently when I first start VMware 4.xx it takes a while for the program to load, the second time (before a reboot) it is speedy. I realize this is from the manual services that had to start the first time.

Anyway, what services should be set to manual in Vmware 5.xx?

You can disable services (nat & co...) with the Network Settings in VmWare apps ... all other not modified ... because I don't realize my system was sloly ...

It's OK to set "VMware Authorization Service" to Manual start.

Disable "VMware DHCP Service" and "VMware NAT Service" if you are only using bridged networking.
