Windows Vista Service Guide online
The initial list of Windows Vista services
is now ready. Have been borrowing a lot from the following places:
- ITsVista.com - Good description of the services beyond the one-liner from Microsoft, but doesn't have description for all the services yet.
- BlackViper.com - Complete list of all services with serveral configuration recommendations, but not much description of why.
The only services that I have found that one could consider to disable is all the services used for the Windows Media Center (Only installed with Home Premium and Ultimate). But I have feeling that in the near future when most people want to stream music and movies from the Internet to their television, then these services have to be activated anyway.
