Are you tired of slow and lagging game performance on your Windows 11 computer? One of the culprits behind this could be the Virtual Basic Script (VBS) that’s running in the background. In this article, we’ll show you how to disable VBS to improve gaming performance and boost overall system speed.

What is VBS?

VBS is a scripting language built into Windows and used for automating tasks, such as opening files or performing system maintenance. However, it can also consume resources and slow down your computer’s performance, especially when running games.

Disabling VBS in Windows 11

To disable VBS in Windows 11, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Run dialog box by pressing the Windows key + R.
  2. Type "regedit" and press Enter to open the registry editor.
  3. Navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWindows Search"
  4. Right-click on "DWord (32-bit) Value Name: EnableScriptsdword:1" and click on "Properties".
  5. Change the value data from "1" to "0" and click "OK".
  6. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

The Benefits of Disabling VBS in Gaming

By disabling VBS, you can significantly improve gaming performance on your Windows 11 computer. Here are some benefits:

  1. Faster load times: Games that use VBS scripts for loading and running will now load faster without the added overhead of the scripting language.
  2. Improved graphics: Disabling VBS can free up resources that can be used to improve graphics performance, making games look better and run smoother.
  3. Reduced lag: With less overhead and more resources available for gaming, you’ll experience less lag and stuttering during gameplay.

Real-Life Examples of Improved Gaming Performance

I recently disabled VBS on my Windows 11 computer and noticed a significant improvement in gaming performance. Games that used to load slowly now loaded within seconds, and graphics were sharper and more vibrant. I also noticed reduced lag during gameplay, making for a smoother and more enjoyable experience.


Q: Is disabling VBS safe?
A: Yes, disabling VBS is generally safe as long as you don’t need to use any of the scripts that rely on it. However, if you do need VBS for any specific tasks or applications, you should not disable it.

Q: Can I enable VBS again if I change my mind?
A: Yes, you can always re-enable VBS by following the same steps as above and changing the value data from "0" back to "1".
