Q

Can I disable Windows service "Network Location Awareness (NLA)" to speedup my computer?

A
Microsoft application service "Network Location Awareness (NLA)" - Collects and stores network configuration and location information, and notifies applications when this information changes.

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

You are not using Internet Connection Sharing service, so you should disable "Network Location Awareness (NLA)", freeing up at least 1MB of memory.

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