As a former data protection professional, I have always lived by the
addage that the first thing you want to do to secure a system is to turn
off all non-essential services. Msft has always been famous for not
giving very good descriptions of their services. Phrases like "required
for system to function" are common.
Can anyone provide a realistic list of Vista services and what they
actually do, so a user can determine if they are needed for the type of
operation they are doing?
