Kill useless and unsafe Windows services

#1
Dont know if this one has been posted already or not, Windows IT Library has this chart to help kill processes that just dont need to be running. I had to leave Windows Audio service enabled for my sound to work. Anyone have any other security tweaks to share?

Welcome to OSNN, trukkmann. You seem to be off to a good start already. :)
That's a nice list! The descriptions next to each service can be especially handy for people who don't know what a particular service does.
