svchost.exe - Service - Human Interface Device Access

Q

Can I disable Windows service "Human Interface Device Access" to speedup my computer?

A
Windows service "Human Interface Device Access" - Enables generic input access to Human Interface Devices (HID), which activates and maintains the use of predefined hot buttons on keyboards, remote controls, and other multimedia devices. If this service is stopped, hot buttons controlled by this service will no longer function. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.

Execution command: C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs

If you are not using any special devices that have hot buttons, you can disable "Human Interface Device Access", freeing up at least 1MB of memory.

Follow our Disabling Windows Service tutorial, if you want to disable this service.
