run games in safemode

Specs: Windows 7
run everything in safe mode is a good idea first because of the speed in bandwindth
services control,and therefor a stable allmost linux based windows os
I learn from scrache that with registry tweak you can make your pc look much better,and believe it can!!
first of all i m not a programmer but my point of view is how you make your pc work faster and thats that...
in safe mode you have a network allmost as fast as your ISP is given you without the 20% consuption by the os services...
also enabling sound is just a reg tweak...
now we need the graphics card wich is the problem
so any suggestions?

Some background:
I have different hardware profiles setup on my laptop. At boot time, I am presented with a list of those profiles to choose from. One of the profiles I created is "Airplane Mode", which disables network related hardware and sets certain unneeded Services to disabled, when I'm travelling on an airplane.

So, a possibility is to create a new hardware profile called something like "Game Mode". Then in the Services configuration, disable all the Services that are not required. This is accomplished by going to the "Log On" tab in the properties of the Service, and selecting "Disable" for the specific hardware profile.

You should be able to get the minimal list of services by booting into Safe Mode, and reviewing the list of Services that are started. Hope this helps!

When your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

You should give up on the idea.

Safe mode was designed for just purpose - to allow the system to start and make it possible correct a problem that prevents a normal startup. It was never intended for general use and certainly not for running games. Your idea is highly impractical and would serve no useful purpose. There is no 20% consumption of bandwidth by OS services in normal mode. This is a misconception.

I would like to know where NickAggelo believes the bandwidth goes. I mean 20% is a lot.

Also, safe mode runs crippled drivers. You'll never get the performance a game needs out of those drivers.
