I do NOT want to interconnect the computers nor share files! ...EVER!
My desktop and 1 laptop takes forever to load and the CPU fan on the desktop has to run literally non-stop due to all the unnecessary services and processes that are always running. Is there a way to disable all the 'group policy-file sharing-public folder-discovery-gateway-administrator' (et.al) services and processes? How can I tell if they are necessary to connect to the ROUTER only and not the HOME NETWORK? Or is the term 'home network' the same as saying router?
I've looked at Viper's page and various other process disabling sites but can't tell the difference between the stuff that connects the individual pc to the router and the stuff that's only used for sharing/remote desktop/group policy/administrator, etc., that I'll never need. I've disabled the most obvious stuff but still... so many useless (to us, anyway) services....
