svchost.exe - Service - Windows Management Instrumentation

Q

Can I disable Windows service "Windows Management Instrumentation" to speedup my computer?

A
Windows service "Windows Management Instrumentation" - Provides a common interface and object model to access management information about operating system, devices, applications and services. If this service is stopped, most Windows-based software will not function properly. 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

This is a very important Windows system service. So you should leave it running in "Automatic" mode.
