I believe it was a recommendation from Steinberg dating to the time of Windows XP.
It was an XP tweak for the RME Digi96 which had a bug at the time. It was fixed shortly after. This workaround is still on 95% of audio tweak websites.

Yes, check the apps and services running in the background - the fewer the better (esp. any software that does automatic scanning, like antivirus). The Audient guide is pretty good, except for the aforementioned Processor Scheduling.
I measured services and apps running in the background. The difference is not measurable. Just leave them.

I can save you the trouble. Black Viper is not an audio guy and his tweaks bring less than 1% performance extra. If you are a gamer, maybe, I didn't test that.
