    Default Want a script to stop non-Traktor essential Windows services?

    If you are having performance issues with your S4 and are running a Windows system then this script may help. Please also check my sticky in this forum for a guide on configuring your system. Nothing here is proven, guaranteed or supported. At worst you waste an evening playing with your computer to no avail. At best you avoid taking your S4 back or forking out for a new laptop.

    THIS IS NOT A THREAD TO BITCH ABOUT NI DRIVERS, SUPPORT OR THEIR WINDOWS CODING SKILLS.

    ***If you read past this line it will be at your own risk***


    This is the script that myself and MartinK have been playing with. Martin is still doing some more testing but for those that want to try something to automate the stopping of most non-Traktor essential services, keep reading...

    This script kills off your networking services and pretty much everything else Traktor doesn't need. This is the 2nd version of the script that also offers to re-start your services. Thanks to Stashe on the NI forum for the update. This is clearly someone who knows their scripting onions!


    Copy the following to into a notepad file:

    @ECHO OFF

    ::============================ ===========

    :: **** BEGIN AUTO ELEVATION PROMPT ****

    :: This makes the batch file prompt for elevated permissions
    :: on Windows Vista or Windows 7, then re-run itself

    VER | FINDSTR /IL "5.1." > NUL
    IF %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 0 SET Version=XP

    VER | FINDSTR /IL "5.2." > NUL
    IF %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 0 SET Version=2003

    VER | FINDSTR /IL "6.0." > NUL
    IF %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 0 SET Version=Vista

    VER | FINDSTR /IL "6.1." > NUL
    IF %ERRORLEVEL% EQU 0 SET Version=7

    If "%Version%"=="XP" GoTo SkipElevation
    If "%Version%"=="2003"? GoTo SkipElevation
    PushD "%~dp0"?
    If Exist "%~0.ELEVATED" GoTo SkipElevation

    :: Have to escape double quotes because they are
    :: passed to Cmd.exe via ShellExecute

    Set CMD_Args=%0 %*
    Set CMD_Args=%CMD_Args:"="%
    Set ELEVATED_CMD=PowerShell -Command (New-Object -com 'Shell.Application').ShellExec ute('Cmd.exe', '/C %CMD_Args%', '', 'runas')
    Echo %ELEVATED_CMD% >> "%~0.ELEVATED"

    :: If there are single quotes in the arguments, this will fail

    Call %ELEVATED_CMD%
    Exit
    SkipElevation
    If Exist "%~0.ELEVATED" Del "%~0.ELEVATED"

    :: **** END AUTO ELEVATION PROMPT ****


    ::============================ ============

    [Save the file as Killscript.bat (or whatever you want to call it, just make sure it has the .bat)

    To launch the script double click on it.

    What you will see:

    Error messages relating to services that don't exist on your machine or services that are already stopped (or were never started). You may also see prompts asking you if you want to disable a dependent service. Hit Y/Yes.

    This script will not stop Anti-Virus/Security and other third party services. I would love to include something that does but I have a job and a family... It will however knock out Windows Defender and Windows Firewall.

    No permanent changes are made to your machine. When you want to revert back to running all services, simply reboot.

    Please don't use this script if you are worried about Windows acting funny once you run it . We have done some basic testing but it's no Gamebooster. If you do play with it, let us know if it helps or not.

    You are more than welcome and thanks Yul and Haze from the props - I have a lot of respect for you guys. I am enjoying looking into the Windows stuff and I will be coming to you for help as quite frankly, my mixes sound like my 2 year old going to town on the TV remote while fighting with the dog

    well I took out all the elevation commands and was able to get to the main selection prompt screen. but simply imputing a number does nothing the script quits but if I input anything EXCEPT the numbers 1,2 or 3 it will successfully begin stopping the services but can not start the services again (unless reboot)...I'm not very knowledgeable on scripting but any advice would be greatly appreciated! Also, keep up the good work on this script I see this as being useful for many window/traktor users!

    Default A result.

    Vice was good enough to post his results of the script on the NI forum.

    From: http://www.native-instruments.com/fo...d.php?t=128527

    "Well I decided to use the only laptop I have (work provided lol) as I wait for all these new sandy bridge laptops to start trickling in. the laptop is a Dell Latitude E5400 with 2 GB ram and a core 2 duo cpu. If i dont disable some of these unnecessary services I will get CPU spikes along with occasional pop and crack in the sound while im playing. So this script makes it really nice and fast to get traktor up and running and it runs flawlessly! sure there might be the occasional cpu spike (not nearly as bad as before) but no pops/cracks or nothing in the sound.

    plus its really nice that i dont have to make new windows profile with all this stuff disabled just to hop on my S4, all i gotta do is run this script!"


    Seems it can be done with some string and a few bottle-tops. Thanks to Stashe on the NI Forum for his advanced codery.
