I'm always hearing that a great way to improve Windows performance is to disable unnecessary services. I heard that Windows by default sets itself up as if it were in a pc on an office network.
My pc is just a home entertainment center that I use for pretty usual activities (web browsing, vnc, p2p, video editting and so forth) its not part of a network although I do connect to my modem through a LAN cable.
If someone could spare a few minutes to show me (and hopefully others running similar services in similar situations) what services I can safely disable then I'd be really grateful. I've seen so many conflicting websites that contradict each other. Perhaps someone can simply offer some rules to go by when experimenting with disabling services?
ps. hv attached a txt file with a list of my services, if someone can explain what the debug stuff is at the end of it that would be amazing
